    We are reworking some elements with the single-chassis BW. Still aiming for Q4, but things might be pushed back to beginning of next year. Will keep you guys posted.

    Thanks for the update. I see that the two-chassis price has been crossed out on the EC website. Any idea what the single-chassis price will be?

    Probably similar price. Either I'm withholding something really nice, or it's going to be a disaster. Great sound or bust.

    Marv, was the original two chassis model ever actually sold to anybody? Like, are there retail versions out in the wild outside of the Super Friends circles?

    perhaps not the right place to ask it but,
    Is there any chance of a demo unit will be available to a reputable store at Singapore, Malaysia, or heck, Indonesia? Really interested with this one.

    LOL, probably not.

    There's a possibility we might have enough volume where they might be stocked by dealers in Asia.

    So, for now, just wait until the final one chassis version is ready? :)

    Thanks for the update Marv. Q1 of next year would give me a chance to save up some cash >.> Would almost work better for me personally.

    That's what I'm thinking too. Of course that means I have to resist the Gungnir Multibit for all that time, and the outcome of that struggle is by no means certain.

    Asia is pretty big though, so based on what is typed it is a possibility that one day a post here might read:

    Code:
    Good news! Our unit can now be demo-ed by prospective buyers in Asia right at Amanullah Home Audio
    - Kabul, Afghanistan. 
    Check it out!
    Technically speaking, it is in Asia. :p

    My Gungnir Multibit just arrived and while i would be sad if it went into Q1 2016 as i was in the second run of 30 was back when - i also want EC to do the best job they can. Im sure it'll be stellar.

    Funny you say that, since I have a feeling the new Black Widow chassis will be quite similar to the Gungnir Multibit chassis.

    It's more than a feeling. Back on CS, Marv said,

    We had been waffling between the form factors not being able to make up our minds. Basically, Craig has been listening to the BW with the Gungnir Multibit. He calls me up and says "Hey Marv, I've been listening to the BW with this Schiit DAC you left here. It sounds really good. I'm thinking we make the amp a single chassis and 16" wide so we can sit the Schiit DAC on top of it."

    My Gungnir Multibit is sitting around waiting for the BW to play with. It's getting lonely.

    The waiting, the waiting! By night, I weep into my pillow; by day I fart in the bathtub and bite the bubbles. All I have to show for it is a mildewed pillow and a stern lecture from my dentist.

    @purrin how are we looking for december? I also have a Gungnir Multibit/HD800 getting lonely and a good deal has come up on a Valhalla 2 near me. I can probably hold off until December but if we're going to be Q1 2016 I might bite the bullet while i wait.

    If you're unsure how the timeline is going to play out all good just thought id ask.
