Yeah, there is no production line from what I understand, just a bunch of different factories that have people hand crafting these things. The only notifications I received were when the speakers were about a week away from shipping. I think they ship them in batches, so if you "miss" a batch when you place your order, you have to wait until the next batch is ready to go before you get your notification. If it were a more modern, assembly line type of production, then they could probably tell you that you are x days away from getting your stuff, but with everything being hand built, I imagine it is next to impossible to make predictions. . . .
Did you happen to order black ceramic? I spoke with Namphung (via e-mail) and she told me that they were having trouble with the kiln. Also, she said they were having "quality control issues" with the black ceramic color. Still not fixed? I wonder how long it will be?
