If that's the case it now takes 9 weeks for the slow boat from China and Starin. Dec 17th to Feb 17th. They are however real  :).

The boat itself takes five to the Port of Los Angeles, a little longer to Seatle. Then, truck or train to the distributor can be a week or two, and then another week or two to the dealer. So, yeah, nine weeks from China to dealer is a reasonable amount of time. :)

When I ordered a computer for my Mother from Apple, it took about a week.  (Probably by air.)

My times are based on Uli announcing shipment from his factory in China and retailers receiving product to sell, that's all, and on the X32 it ranged from 8 to 8.5 weeks for the US. Now it's slipped to 9 weeks.

I used to work for a company that did a lot of manufacturing in China, so I got pretty used to thinking about transit times... :)

Uli or Starin should be thinking about a warehouse in CA or at least in NV instead of Chicago.  ;) I have ordered many things from China and received them in a week (large sized items). Time for a 21st Century shipping solution.

For one or two items, you can do that -- I do it, too. However, when you're shipping containers-full, air freight is prohibitively expensive. There really is no "21st Century" alternative.

Where is a transporter when you need it?  Could the Doctor make the Tardis available?

You don't really think they're handled separately. They're shipped in containers and also have to be sorted out at this end.

The app's not done yet, is it? How are you supposed to use it?

A .5 version beta for Windows. Great. My Macbook is amused. I have the iPad app, but there doesn't seem to be any way to switch FX processors. It's a mock-up, not an app. Is the Android one any more complete? By the way, Behringer's BC-Edit and DSP1100 apps have been in beta since 2009 and 1998, respectively.

All the same, the XR18 is on my buy list. They nailed the form factor and the feature set.

Actually I believe it is fully functional when "connected" to the hardware...

You can change the FX in the PC app :) .

How soon we forget. The DL1608 was shipped using MF V1.0 and the first usable MF V1.1 made it a month later. ;D At least you have a choice of 5 platforms instead of 1. That's Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and iOS.
