Player's Special: please let us know if you receive info from PG.



  • Like the Power Supporters thread, Players Special orderers, please post when you receive info from PG.
    I ordered on 1-23-2020, The last time I heard from PG, 3-10-2020, they were going to ship our units (11,800 sold including the covers and headphone order) in April and May. Reports say China manufacturers are beginning to return to work. Would have been nice to have this Spark to fiddle with while I have to stay home.



  • I ordered Jan 18th, I just hope by the end of May. I knew it was pre order and have another amp so I don’t mind the wait.



  • So today I finally received another note from PG. I suspect you all got it as well. But if not, try here https://www.positivegrid.com/spark#updates . Pretty encouraging message.



  • @eldredjames nice! Can’t wait to try the SLO 100.



  • Rough estimates. All Early/"Super Early" Bird orders are shipped per 3 Mar update. And some thousands of Power Supporter orders are shipped. Assuming that means ~3000 orders, shipped, as of today that leaves about 6000 Power Supporter + 11,800 Player Special + 14,700 Last Chance special orders. Total 32,500 units.

    Per 26 Mar update, at 1000 units/workday that's ~33 days of production (or ~7 weeks). Add a week for shipping the last lot, which means if you ordered a Last Chance today and you were in that last lot, you would get it after two months (assuming "not a worst-case scenario" ). Which seems to line-up with the 11 Mar statement that Last Chance specials would be shipped by May. It's just that it might mean mid/end of May.

    What do you think?



  • I placed my order (#109562) on Dec.5th which, according to the order confirmation, put me in the Players Special group. However, when I contacted Support regarding the free BiasFX2 promo (I never rec'd any emails about it)...they replied with the unlock code, but in the header of the email I noticed I was now designated with the Power Supporters group. Same order number though.

    Although I haven't inquired about this switcheroo, I have not received any shipping notifications as of yet.



  • @bluesman55 wait... what free Bias FX2 promo?

    @bluesman55 wait... what free Bias FX2 promo?

    In the "POWER SUPPORTERS please notify when you get shipping email" thread I saw it mentioned. Had to email Support to get the offer but apparently it was offered because so many people were pissed about the Spark delays. At least that's what I got from all this. Shoot Support a message and see if it's still good.



  • An email I received a few days ago >>> Dear Spark Pre-order Purchasers:
