Exciting! I hope that your new Decware addition stops you from dating hot communist women! Haha

It’s been a long long wait for you and everyone…After submitting my order for a Torii MK 5 w/A-mods in May of last year I’m now in the low 300’s. I figure another 7 mos. which makes final delivery around the 14 mos.

I have been checking the waiting list very often lately. I ordered an SE84UFO plus a ZROCK one month ago and my order wasn't yet added to the list. Looks like the most recent orders are from Nov, 26. I would be happy to see my name popping up... even if it is to stay there for 1 year or more Smiley

Has anyone else ordered recently ?

I spoke with Sarah yesterday, she said she has a couple hundred or so orders to add to the waitlist.

With shipping perhaps 2 years out, there’s not a hurry to update the list. They are swamped with other operational things that take precedence.

I placed my order at the end of November (Black Friday) and I'm still not on the wait list. I placed my first Decware order over a year and a half ago, and waited 5 months and a day for my amps to be delivered. I may wait that long to get on the wait list this time   .


But if my Decware experience has taught me anything, it is the amps are more than worth the wait, and worth much more than the price.

I did the exact same thing and I am not on the wait list yet either.  If I get it for Christmas that would be fantastic…either way it’s worth the wait.

My orders have advanced 60 spots since late August. At this rate, and as long as aliens don't kidnap Steve in the meantime, I should be getting my orders around my 70th birthday, three years from now.

I know it must feel that way, but the list has moved quite a bit faster than 60 spots since August.  On August 10th I was at 232.  Today I’m at 35.  So that’s nearly 200 since August.  

Since August the pace has been 35 per month.  The pace has picked up noticeably in the last month which has brought that 5 month average up to 40. Not just 40 in the last month, but enough of an increase to raise the entire 5 month average to 40.

In the last 3 weeks I’ve gone from 82 to 35.  If my math is correct, that brings the average pace up from about 35 per month to 67.  

The pace has quickened, and that’s with the holidays and Covid mixed in.

The new pace, assuming the list is at about 1200 orders, still makes it about 18 months for a new order to ship.  Perhaps faster.

But this appears to be good news overall.

Welp, I was always in the 600s and still am, after 5 months. If that's actually not true then that would be interesting, but I'm just calling what I see on the list. Of course not everything will be delivered in lockstep order.

Problem with a long queue is the lack of interactivity. Can't buy one component, wait for it, listen for a few months, say "hey, how about that other component?" and wait for it. Not when there's a year and a half from order to delivery (and continuously getting longer -- the rate at which the queue is inflating is a who other topic).

Well, it's a fiendishly effective reverse marketing tool. I ordered everything I might ever want from Decware, ever, all at once because I'm too old to wait a year and a half again if I decide I want something else (i.e. I will have to look elsewhere for additional components, if I ever feel the need).

The queue LOOKED like about 8 months to delivery when I placed my orders (i.e., the oldest and newest orders were 8 months separated in time). It's getting kind of humorous to hear accounts of waiting a whole four months for delivery, "but it was worth it."

Having never even heard one of these components, I would consider myself thoroughly red-pilled, but I think customers who wait more than a year should get, like, a Decware coffee mug or a nice T-shirt.

The good news is that you're most certainly mistaken.  If you're in the 600's now, then you were in the 800's five months ago.  That much I can guarantee.  There's no way you've been spinning your wheels in the 600's for the last 5 months.

Also, the concept of looking at what orders were being shipped when you ordered as a way to determine your possible ship date, is mathematically incorrect.  The reason being is that the number of orders per month can fluctuate.  There was a big surge in orders from March 2020 through the summer.  When I ordered on March 1, that put me at about #360.  If you ordered in August, that probably put you in the 800's (I'm guessing).  That makes your wait much much longer than whatever order dates were shipping when you ordered in August.

Hopefully that makes sense.  That your wait was always much longer than 8 months at the production pace throughout the fall.

Steve has said more techs would be hired in the winter, and here we are, in the winter.  This will pick up the pace, as it seems to have accelerated as of late.  The average has been 35 per month.  If it gets up to a 50 per month average, then you still have a year to go.  At 70 per month, more in the 9 month range.

Keep the faith!  What else is there to do?

DancingSea:

Thanks for the math work, and the encouragement.  I also ordered on Black Friday, and am waiting to get on the list.

I just wanted to note that one factor not included in your analysis is the effect of people who are ahead of you on the list that decide to add another item to their order.  My understanding is that the new item would have the same priority as the original order.  It that is right, then it is possible that while you move up the list for each item shipped, you fall behind for each item added to an existing order that is ahead of you.  

If I did my math right, then the farther back you are on the list, the less progress you may make each month because there are more people ahead of you that may add to their order.  That might be why Burgermeester has not moved up as much as you (on the other hand, maybe I just did my math wrong!).

So I think it is very hard to predict how long the wait will be if you are at the end of the list (I'm not complaining, as I was aware of the long wait when I ordered, and I think this is a very challenging situation for Decware to manage).  What will be will be!

Hi Lon,  Sure he will! I think you feel left out wishing you could qualify for a T-shirt - it is NOT EASY, you know. I could send you a UC-Berkeley shirt in its place to help with this issue of inclusion.  :)

Thanks for pointing that out. While certainly a factor, I do not believe it could account for only moving 60 spots in 5 months.

I’ve been following the math since the summer. Once a consensus was reached that about 35 per month are shipping, I calculated that my order would ship in mid February.  And that has proved to be accurate, down to the week.  The 400 in front of me didn’t add to their orders enough to alter that pace over 8 months.

Ironically 2 weeks shy of qualifying for a T-shirt!  C’mon Steve, help a brother out!

Heck, delay shipment 2 weeks just so I get a T-shirt

No need to send me a T-Shirt. I rarely wear any with writing or images on them. I am not jealous. Rather. . .I think Steve means to move all orders out in less than a year. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

It just happened. The moment I’ve been waiting for, the moment we’re all waiting for, the email from Sarah stating parts have been pulled.

This is a harbinger, a prophecy unfolding, that the T-shirt is that much closer to shipping!

I assume by “parts” they mean the cotton is being harvested and heading to the loom.
