Through much of this year I've been a bit scrambled on all fronts. I'm pretending to keep up but not doing a very good job of it...... Plenty of mistakes and not taking care of folks as good as I want to be. I've been struggling with how to get a handle on it and the only thing I can up with was to cut out the DIY sales. Since the alternative would be to stop OEM sales and those guys rely on me to get their products out and feed their families - it does not leave many options. I start a lot of days at 3 or 4 am and still can't seem to keep up. Still since I love the DIY community and all the fun projects you guys build it feels quite wrong.....
I wanted to give some time so I can take care of folks who had plans in the works so I will be taking DIY parts orders until year end and will fill them as fast as I can as they come in. Here is the scoop before then:
I have 10 final AVC-1 chassis on order and a few large deep black chassis left from the TAP-X/ FLEX chassis days. About 5 of the AVC-1 enclosures are spoken for. Once they are gone that will be it for them. I am just now waiting to hear back from a couple fellows but if you are wanting one of those then please let me know so I can do my best to get you one. These chassis are the only part in limited supply so any other parts I can get for folks as long as you let me know before year end. As always no payment is needed until I am ready to ship you the parts.
Here is what does NOT change:
1- Warranty repairs (or any repairs or mods of existing gear). Nothing changes. I am still here to take care of folks with Bent Audio gear of any kind from the past. This also includes any parts needed for revisions or mods, etc...
2- Still here to answer questions - although as part of the new cruelty it may take me a bit longer to reply to e-mails and I have to stop myself from talking at length on the phone. Note that I said stop myself - I really like talking audio and more often than not I am the one dragging on the calls!
3- OEM sales - parts for all OEM's will continue as before although a few parts I seldom sell any more will be phased out as I get low on them here. Things like resistor attenuators mainly. I will give warning of that well ahead of time.
I will have some fun mods down the road for existing gear including tablet / phone control of the AVC-1 pre-amps early next year. Huge project that was to get rolling and still a bit to go but the android version is almost done and apple will follow shortly after that.
Feel free to post any questions and / or abuse as needed. I really do have a feeling I am abandoning you guys but as I said up top I must make a change and just could see no alternative........
