Are you kidding?? Spectral is the most private of private audio companies. They will not put out a product until it is ready for production. That is the way they have been for the last 20 years, so why would they change now??? Besides, why did you put a deposit on it???
Which of the 5 or so U.S. Spectral dealers is requiring $5000 deposits on orders? I've never deposited more than about $2000, and that was always for a product already in production. You should ask for your money back, or at least for interest.
