Hey Sonicjoy, Dennis is really busy right now filling orders for amps.
I will ask him when and where he wants you to send it.
Once he starts on the amp it should only take a day to update, then burn in overnight, then test and box up for shipping
The update will involve installing an IIPS and some other updates to the unit.
I will ask what the estimate for the updates will be.
You should ship the amp without tubes.
I suggest using FedEx or UPS.
