  • Thank you!! Time to start accumulating part.....
  • @RobbyKY I see you are also a fan of the Carver/Polk synergy o:)
  • Yes sir and have been since about 1988. A Carver MXR-150 receiver/amp and a set of Polk 2B's were my first major purchase after getting out of school and landing a "real" job. Worked for a radio station while getting my degrees and they would broadcast "Carver Sonic Holography Hour" on Friday nights at 10:00, sank the hook good! Next up was the C-4000 preamp & an M1.0t amp and never looked back. Still have everything but the MXR is in dire need of a recap.

    18.) dd2753
    19.) dd2753
    20.) RobbyKY

    NEXT STEPS
    I'd like to wrap things up soon now that we've reached 20 and reaching 25 doesn't look terribly likely. I'd like to keep open for another day if that's alright with the group. Let's set a deadline of Thursday 12/22. If anyone has an overwhelming desire to keep open longer, please let us know.

    If anyone is on the fence, now is the time. Unit cost drops another $14 if we reach 25.

    Confirmation PM's are going out shortly using the 20-count pricing.

    Is there a separate thread for cases?
  • heiney9heiney9 Posts: 23,352
    Yeah, I had some questions about the cases as I am just now compiling a list of parts I need to make a cable, and other parts for the case, etc. So hopefully a case thread will be started soon.

    Hey Craig, do you remember the lead time once these are ordered?

    Great response!

    Lead time is currently 12 weeks.

    Whoa! Didn't realize that. So I guess no hurry for a case thread...lol.

    vcwatkins,
    Please post a summary of what the expected costs and payment schedule are currently.
    Thanks,

    vcwatkins,
    Please post a summary of what the expected costs and payment schedule is currently.
    Thanks,
    Harry
    Marietta GA

    COST
    We are currently at:
    Transformer unit cost: $243.19
    USPS insured CONUS shipping: $17.55 (additional charge for int'l)
    Total each: $260.74
    If we get to 25 committed, the total is reduced by $14.24
    I'll need to get a quote directly from Melanie on any shipping outside the 48 states.

    PAYMENT
    Although Avel Lindberg collects 50% up front with 50% due at shipment, I'll need to collect 100% since I'll be on the hook once ordered. I'll pay the total when I place the order.

    Payment is via Paypal gift prior to order being placed. Once confirmations are received, I will send out payment info. Paypal fees, if any, will be buyer’s responsibility. Paypal fees from debit/credit card look to be $7.86 on a $260.74 transaction. Once the funds are collected, I'll place the order and pay in full. It depends on how quickly money comes in of course, but I would hope I can place the order when they reopen on 1/2/17.
  • What's the cost of the cases?
    (*I doubt @Toolfan66 is giving them away*)

    You posted in the thread that Toolfan66 said he would make a cases thread after the New Year, so that's your answer (it hasn't been determined yet) and Craig isn't in charge of the cases.

    I assume that the cases are a separate matter that the case maker will handle from start to finish. This is for the tranny buy only.

    Sorry, these threads always are filled with lots of fun phrases you can't help but take out of context.

    Last time around they were in the neighborhood of $100; Larry will set the price, this go-round, based on materials and time cost, etc. He's good people obviously and the value of his product will be well over the price he quotes.

    Let me know if it's on the fence to get the next discount. If it comes down to it, I might help you dudes hit the mark until more buyers come out of the woodworks.

    Me, too. As I'm thinking about going in the neutrik<sp> direction

    I suggest extending the "I'm in" period to Jan 2 . . . just my $00.2

    Looks like we might be getting another ptoce drop. Hold it open for a bit longer.
  • vcwatkinsvcwatkins Posts: 1,584
    We're at 21 with 3 fence-sitters. Let's see where we are late tomorrow night. I think we'd all love to see us get to 25 and it does seem to be within reach at this point.

    Great chance to move closer to the best possible sound from SDA's and a fun easy project. Anyone considering needs to jump in now.

    Again, many thanks to @250GTLusso for making this happen.

    Let this be encouragement to get a few more people on board with this and get to the next drop in price people!
    WE ARE ALMOST THERE FOR THE FIRST TIME(*ever I think*)
  • I echo Craig's (*@vcwatkins*) remarks and also extend Kudos to Steve @250GTLusso for kicking this off with gusto.
    Also Kudos to Craig for stepping up and taking over this in such an organized manner!

    Here,here gentlemen!

    I got the message over there thanks,so don't get your panties in a bunch ;) :D
  • I can wait a while longer to get to the 25 mark for an even better discount.
  • vcwatkinsvcwatkins Posts: 1,584
    We are very close to 25 and the lowest unit price! Here's where we stand:

    (21) Committed
    • (10) confirmation/address PM's received
    • (6) confirmation/address PM's outstanding
    (4) Fence-dwellers
    • (1) Currently in for one unit & willing to order second if helps get 25
    • (2) May jump in if it helps to get to 25
    • (1) Mulling

    If fence dwellers are closer to committing now that 25 is within reach, please let me know.

    Anyone else considering needs to jump in now. Great chance to get closer to the best possible sound from SDA's. You want proof? Here's your proof.
  • So we have gone from almost three hundred each for the transformers to now if we make the magic 25 for the group buy to just over two hundred each.
    Looks good to me.
    How about those fence sitters????

    Fence sitters need to decide, but keep in mind this an extremely busy time of year with people distracted/busy for Xmas. Since we are this close, I'd say to keep it open until 1-3-17 to ensure all who want to get one can.

    Of course if we hit the goal before 1-3-17, then move forward with the purchase.

    Just my unbunched panties .02c :D

    P.s. The math is off 21 committed; 10 received; 6 outstanding = 16, what about the other 5?

    P.s.s. Nevermind I just realized a few bought multiple units....duh!

    I agree regarding the 1/3/17 date. People have more money in the new year too.
