Lucky! Just made contact. To quote a Christmas song:

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

I need to be patient! I wish I didn't know what Santa
has for me!

Hey jocke - just out of interest do you know the exact date you ordered?

Thanks for the warm welcome stiiiiiiive.

Update:
Quick update for all the lurkers here. I just got a call from my sweetwater sales engineer today that the ETA they were given by Moog for my order is Dec 20th. I ordered on Oct 9. So looks to be about about a 10 week or longer turnaround time for select series orders.

this is why i drove to sweetwater (about 3 1/2hours away) to pick mine up, i wanted to see it in person to check everything out, and did not trust usps, ups, fedex or any other postal service to transport it safely. i have a feeling thats how a lot of voyager issues come about

Receiving a defective unit after waiting for a good quarter of the year is my worst fear. At this point I've lowered my expectations and just hope for something to arrive before the end of the year.

I do find myself concerned about the possibility that the quality control could be declining due to the recent influx of orders. Reading about all the hardware problems on these forums is not helping comfort me, while I wait. Astricii's experience of receiving a broken unit right off the bat simply breaks my heart. Learning that people drive hours just to pick theirs up, because it is perceived as delicate, is not very reassuring either.

I really hope my concerns are unwarranted and that these cases are the rare exception and not the norm. I mean, unless you drive down to Moog and pick it up personally, it has got to be shipped out and able to survive the trip. This is my first experience with two highly reputable companies and I'm really hoping to not have a negative experience in the end. But I must admit, that the ever growing delay in my order has been pretty damn brutal and allowed my imagination to run a bit wild.

:idea: Maybe someone can chime in that after their long anticipated wait, they received their new select series voyager without issue and it worked flawlessly (to uplift all our spirits).

@astricii - which place did you order yours from?
@ColorForm2113 - From your post previous to the last,
you ordered (and received) yours before the last hurrah,
right? (lucky...)

I need to remind myself that distance makes the heart grow
fonder. But I'm also fond of twiddling knobs!

Yeah it was maybe a couple of weeks later they announced the select series would be no more. I was super stoked to get in before the closing bell

It's beginning to look a lot like...

new years.

New estimated arrival at Sweetwater is the 27th. Guessing it's cheaper
for Sweetwater to get a big ol' analogue pallet of goodness than do it piecemeal.
No matter, going to draw knobs on an empty gift box on Christmas, jam my
headphone cable in the side and pretend!

Take that Santa! *sigh*

Had my select for all of 3 days. The VCA envelope was out of whack when it arrived. Going past noon on the decay or release knob would result in a sustained pitch. So after 7 weeks of waiting I'm on week 3 of waiting to hear back about the warranty work. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

So yeah, I recommend anyone buying these, should probably spring for the extended coverage... I have a feeling it's going to be worth it in the long run.

it was however, superbly beautiful while I had it.
