Hi Morten,

The reason I wanted in on this tour is because my system is all balanced gear. On the last tour I had to re-wire everything to unbalanced.
I think your balanced preamp is better suited for my system.

Ok. Good argument. You're in.  :green:

Ok, let me know if there is a change. I have that Chapter on borrow and it has a really nice ground feature. You can toggle between chassis or the ground pin on Xlr. I sold my Audio Oasis t1 passive but that ground feature seems made for passive pre amps.

Tour Group Update.
With 12 participants signed up I'm declaring the tour full up and ready to roll. Given the backlog of orders we have for the new LDRx/LDRxB it will be more like late September before we break a unit loose for the tour. I will eventually set up a shared spreadsheet in google docs where everyone can fill in their contact info. Thanks for participating.  :thumb:

Sounds great! I'm glad you were able to fit my Canadian address into the tour.

I am interested as I have all balanced gear and had to use converters on the first tour. If there is a way to try out this new balanced unit then that would be awesome.

Begging can't  hurt right.........? HA

Cheers,
James

Just a brief update for the tour group that we won't be kicking off the tour until after we've caught up with our back orders which will likely take another 2 weeks or so. Figure some time in October. Will update you again just before we send the unit to drmike. 

Cheers,
Morten

Are there any geographic benefits to reshuffling the tour?

Oops, thought there were 15 slots. Anyone on the tour near Appleton, WI?

Aw, missed it by a couple of weeks!  Well, if anyone backs out (yeah right!), I'd love to be on standby :)

Before we kick this off, I will compile a contact list of everyone on the tour and put that into a google docs spreadsheet that everyone can access/share/update. I will then reshuffle the deck to minimize shipping distances per leg.

Hi Morten! Hope you're catching up on orders. Any chance of getting a silver wired version for the tour?  :hyper:

I have to withdraw from the tour.  I am selling my balanced DAC.  Keeping my single ended Tortuga though!

No problem. And glad to see you're wisely holding on to the right equipment!  :thumb:

Here's the revised lineup. As far as a start date we are still backlogged with orders which makes it difficult to break a unit free for the tour. While we've improved our overall production efficiency and worked out most of the fabrication/assembly kinks it's still a very careful deliberate build process by 2-3 people. Plus RMAF14 took up a huge chunk of time where production just stopped. Excuses excuses. Hang in there. It will happen!

I have a silver-wired DIY version (single-ended).......and you are a wise man to ask for that.     :thumb:
