Well, two of my three packages have shipped out from Audio Note in Canada. The first to arrive will probably be the heaviest box containing the transformers. That the transformer box alone weighs about 38.5 pounds tells you something about the “serious iron” that this amp will pack. It should arrive here in Austin in about 5 days.
The second box, containing most of the other parts (case, PCB’s, electronic components and so on) is on its way, but apparently is held up in customs inspection on the Canadian side of the border. Brian’s not worried about it so neither will I.
There will be a 3rd box because a couple of my tubes were on back order when the order was shippped out. Fortunately, plugging in the tubes comes at the end of the build process so I can get started when the first two pieces of the shipment have arrived.
