Audible Illusions continues to experience long delays in
delivering their products. I ordered an M3B in late December 2015,
the final payment was solicited (and paid) in late January - when I was told
that the preamp was "on the bench" by Jerry at AI. The only
thing on the bench, as far as I can tell, was my cash. I feel like I am
getting the run around everytime I call AI. I just called AI for the 6th
time since ordering the preamp only to be told that they are out of tubes and
are waiting for the delivery of Swiss switches and that they have no idea when
they are coming in. "But don't worry you will get your preamp
soon." I miss dealing directly with Art Ferris who is a heck of a
nice guy and a straight shooter ( as well as and audio engineering
genius). I've happily owned a Modulus 1, 2 and 3, but I am very
close to demanding my money back and buying from the competition.
I hear the PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Preamplifier is pretty good.
