I recommend getting in touch with Joshua if you’re unsure about the status of your order.

I emailed them and the response over the weekend was they would be shipping by month-end. I'm assuming the invoices will go out then.

What I don't like is that it is so consistently and frequently missed, it would be more professional to just give the most conservative estimate in the first place. People would accept that more willingly, you know where you stand. Instead the deadline gets added to every couple of weeks.

exactly...and yes we all know the obvious answer:get a refund.
The problem is that you cannot collect money under a ''promise'' and after achieving our goaland many many delays suggesting people a refund.It is nice you offer a refund (you couldn't do something different anyway) but...not a solution .Even the people who ask finally for a refund,were used somehow.
I admire the effort and the quality of such small companies but...this situation is a big minus.

Still I feel like this is ultimately to our benefit. Better have it done in the time it takes instead of pulling off a rushed deploy, having to deal with recalls etc. But indeed, The delivery estimates have been too optimistic at times.

The SA-76 and SA-73 project have face ridiculous delays, we have always had delays in the past, no matter how conservative the date, too many suppliers and it takes just one of them to be delayed for the entire production to suffer, however, with these 2 products it has been poor organization on my side and some technical difficulties with the SA-76 to get it to sound like the UREI.

I have no excuse and can only apologize for the long wait, we are in the process of moving the entire production to be made in Chile, this will reduce the wait time dramatically and we will have permanent stock on units.

Pre/order advantage will be discontinued this year, the discounts will go away as well. It was a good way of gathering capital and moving forward to start the company, we have enough clients and funds now to stop them.

Thanks again, the SA73 will start shipping in 10- days roughly, expect an invoice next week.

Currently shipping all SA4000 and SA-76's

Thanks for the honest update, it is appreciated.
Excited also to hear that Stam is growing and becoming a 100% Chilean operation!

This is what you do, file a complaint if you used a card or paypal. Don't put up with the bullshyt. This guy is the epitome of penny wise and pound foolish. We're hoping to save some sheckles by buying cheap gear and paying for it with our anguish. We should NOT be dealing with this. Get the word out and people will stop falling for this ponzi scheme. Either he gets his act together or he goes out of "business".

That's your opinion.Many people have a different one from you.Some people may have delayed their work because of the continuous cancellations/..Nobody likes repeated postponements for the same reason.Please don't make me repeat what i i ve already wrote.I didn't ask from you anything regarding the delay.Joshua seems sincere and he admitts this situation..I quoted Joshua and iam waiting a response from him and an update.Don't suggest me what to write.:

Did you get any info about a delivery? I thought when an invoice was sent out and paid it would mean the unit is pretty much ready to ship?

Normally yes but I have daily limit with the post office and have a lot of paid invoices so I am working through the list.

I started shipping them so it will be any day this week or next Monday at worst

Thanks for the patience

Can I ask about your new API preamp? Are you considering of introducing a single channel version of it in the future as well? I only need one channel, same as with the ’73

Is the SA73 a half-rack size? I’m wishlisting for a 1 RU with one SA73 and one SA312, now that’d be classy! Combined with my SA4000, that’d make a killer 2RU solution to augment any ITB project (I have a gator 2 RU carry bag)

thanks
