The list is 65 deep and closed for now until the next run. Impressive. A RL record I'm sure.

An FYI, I'm listing mine in the classifieds for a "market adjusted" price of $1,000.00

Nick,

I'm on the list (thank you), although I won't be picking up her up until next week. When I receive the tweeters, I was going to have my audio shop throw them in when the reinstall the K40 remote from my M6. Do you think I should disconnect the center channel at the same time? I'm not a big fan of the synthesized surround sound anyway.

Open to input from the group.

Sorry for the lack of an update for those on the list. It seems that everything happens at once and our local business has spiked up rapidly over the past week, so trying to juggle both without dropping any *****. That said, all the parts are slowly making their way in and we should have everything to start assembly on the first orders by the end of this week.

The break in the supply chain was definitely the Porshe Burmester grilles. We took every single one they had in the US and backordered Germany without a good amount of them. I'll be sending out an update email this week to everyone who has an order in, so stay tuned for that.

You'll have to call them the "GT-TWEET" version.

I personally recommend it, but everyone's tastes are different.

Like I've told others in the past, put a towel and a paperweight of sorts on top of your center channel grille before you take the initiative to disconnect it. That will muffle it out enough to tell you if you like that better.

Those like Joe who already have Burmester grilles will definitely get their order earlier than some others. But if you don't have the grilles you're still going to need them, and they won't come to you locally any faster than they'll come to us here since they'll need to fill our backorder before any others.

By the way, just a fun fact, 47 out of 60 orders with grilles required are black... definitely a popular color!

The guys in the red interiors can't hear their stereos over their red interiors They don't need no stinkin' tweeters!
(I kid, my second color combo choice was GT Silver over Red!)

Christmas was a little late at Musicar, but the drop was worth the wait. Time to get busy....
