Default Clearaudio/Musical Surroundings Delivery Time?

I ordered a Clearaudio Ovation with a Universal arm three weeks ago. It’s not been received by the retailer yet, much less shipped to me. I understand that most retailers would not keep such a setup in stock, but is it your experience that ordering this level of component takes this long? My retailer has been very apologetic and has been following up - they even gave me a $50 gift certificate for the inconvenience (which of course went to vinyl), so no blame there. I realize I may be impatient here - just want to get listening to the new toy.

It usually depends upon whether the exact model/configuration you ordered is on hand at the distributor. If it is then the dealer can generally get it in a week or so, but if the distributor is out of stock and has to wait on additional inventory it can take some time. Sounds like your dealer is on top of it and keeping you in the loop, nice of them to give you the gift certificate as a good faith gesture. I know that most audiophiles are not very patient having to wait for their latest acquisition, but in the long run getting exactly what you want is the most important thing and I'm sure the enjoyment you'll get from the new table and arm will be well worth it!

Awesome! Enjoy your gorgeous new deck. I also seem to remember 5-7 weeks for my first Innovation 5 years ago, but I think the last 2-3 weeks of that were waiting for the Graham arm.
