    Hi Larry, Manny and other LHLabs staff,

    can we get an update, please? We were promised that the shipping Vidac Tubes would pick up after August 2016. That should mean you have produced any where between 90 to 150 units by the end February. However news about delivered Vidac Tubes is sparse around web. Occasionally, someone had replaced it and is trying to sell it off. If i mention that I have seen 10 confirmed deliveries on the web, I’m generous.

    Please do not beat around the bush, tell us how many were delivered and how long it will take to complete the delivery of the indiegogo VIDacs and how many units remain.

    thank you

    Vidac requires a good status report like most of lhlabs crowfunding efforts. People desperately want to be updated.

    Hi don’t worry about me and my pitch forks. They are nicely tucked away. I frequently vented my support and trust in Larry and his people. I definitely preach patience. No point in receiving a unit and it turns out  to be less than expected (expecting a lot btw) or faulted. Sometimes I need to blow off some steam and they should really consider it some friendly advice or clarification how things are/could be perceived.

    We all know that Larry knows what he is doing (engineering wise). There are enough testimonies to support that he can design incredible products. I sometimes feel that I want to put those testimonies to the test in my living room ?

    Best chance of getting a response is on indiegogo.

    It would be nice to know if the delivered number vidacs tube have increased by 30 to 52. This shows either that lhlabs’ estimates are accurate or that the machining issue also impacted August and September. Where is btw the promised production update?

    I trust Larry to pull through at the end with the help of the team, which I expressed a few times, but there are a few things that irritate me.

    The fact that lhlabs is sitting on my shipping fee for nine months, marks asking for shipping money with obviously no shipping insight as a seriously uncool move. Based on the production planning they should have asked for payment 7 days to 10 days before working on somebody’s unit. Now it looks as intentionally separating their backers from their cash.

    I have accepted that all lhlabs products will have close to a 30/36 months development cycle, which was obscured in the campaigns. Apparently, most products were at the start of the development cycle.

    I would appreciate if they stick to the task. Now Larry is working on the gov02 signatures. I thought Larry was working on the Vidac tube signatures (no self interest, inifiny backer) or are these close to finished? Even if they are finished, then aren’t there things queued up that deserve priority before new “projects”.

    Keep providing full disclosure. I thought Gavin’s message was not chique, he is part of lhlabs for all I care, but resulted in some necessary disclosure. If an update lists a tent pole, like for example getting the chassis issue sorted, please report back. Furthermore, use one medium to inform the backers. My suggestion, use Indiegogo updates, mark them for backers only if you need to do that.

    Well that being said, keep on pushing!

    The only spreadsheet I know is the Geek product list and updates, but it has not been updated after 2014 and does list quanties.

    the total number vidacs has not been officially announced. The number 2oo has been singing around on the forums. It seems we have about 1200 backers. The number is is actual backings in the vidac campaign. Assuming every backer made multiple pledges and the average would be 4 perks per backer we are looking at 240 vidacs. If the average would be closer to my number (6), we end up at 200.

    Somehow I have the idea in my head that there will be around 110-120 ss vidacs and there would be around 70-80 tube vidacs. The ss vidac are nearing the end of production around the end of May with the possible exception of the SE editions of the ss Vidacs. By the end of this week around 80 ss units will be finished. The tube’s production is ramping up to 30 a month in June. If they can achieve and maintain that production speed then August would be the worst case scenario. SE tubes backers may have to some more patient. Although, Larry said in this week’s update, that basically there is no series build here and everyone of the babies is getting a lot individual attention. SE’s may rolling out of the lhlabs side by side with infinities and xfi’s.

    patience is the motto for Lhlabs campaigns, and a bit more is needed, but there is a light…..

    After spotting a number of requests for an update in a week’s time, I added a comment just after the Vibrato email and the update on the wave campaign, which was being monitored. Larry responded that there would be an update soon. This was 1,5 weeks ago. I think there was a post on hifi.org stating that Gina responded to a ticket, which indicated that Larry did give some instruction to update the table.

    We have seen an increasing number of requests being made over a couple weeks. It just makes you wonder, if they do not get what regular updates mean to us who are waiting and boy we have been waiting. In a few days it has been 30 months since my first pledge towards the pulse which morphed into a vidac tube infinity over time. By the sound of it it is going be 33 months and reading between the lines of the ccx update I more or less expected, or feared, that we are still months away.

    That (lack of clarity on adjusted time lines) and that at least two campaigns have not had a signicant update in more then a month, and that promises of a new updates in a week or two (or soon) are not honored, probably cause the recent windfall of update requests.

    I have seen people pop up who were (very) active during campaigns and saying that they waited and waited idly, but are now at the end of their patience and kindly request an update.

    it should not be that hard to put out a monthly updated table, right?

    It is Larry personal project, so it will likely depend on his time schedule and how happy he is with the out come. I assume these are still personalized SE’s and not one Kind of Larry’s SE. There of course nothing wrong with that last one, but I recall vivid discussions between Pulse Dac SE backers, about what they wanted and what they recommended to fellow SE backers still searching for their signature. They were interesting follow.

    Larry was saying he wanted to discuss upgrading HDD or SwApping hdd for ssd with us in eight weeks. That statement is about two weeks old. Based on that timeline I am not expecting anything before April 2016.
