    Just saw this on Facebook:

    #Automatone #PreampmkII production update. We are very excited to announce we are still planning on shipping these beginning on May 28th but due to COVID-19 the release will be staggered. We are no longer accepting pre-orders and we will be shipping the earliest pre-orders first. We’ll simultaneously be pushing these out to dealers and distributors starting next week. We expect the whole process to take about 3 weeks. We ask that you please be patient as our longtime manufacturing partners in Los Angeles have very recently opened back up due to COVID-19. They are a high end pro audio gear manufacturer and we simply don’t trust anyone else to manufacture this product. But again, you will start seeing these in the wild very soon. On a personal level this is the culmination of nearly 3 years of very hard work, and I can’t wait to get them in your hands.

    Thanks! I refuse to “set foot” into Facebook, so I appreciate you posting it here. I ordered within an hour or two of announcement, so hopefully I’m in the first wave!

    Thanks for posting. I just checked my order and looks like I was number 92, so hopefully that is in the first wave. Either way, we've been patient this long so a few more weeks isn't a problem at all. Can't wait to try this thing out.

    I’d guess at least several hundred... I mean, preorders were only just recently closed, right?

    We know 1,000 gen losses sold out within a day, and this has been an anticipated release, so I would guess close between 800-100?.

    In that case I would think I should be in the first or second batch with #85.

    Not yet. I’ve seen no movement since the Production Update above. I’m sure hoping to see a shipping notification today or in the next day or so, though.
