To keep you as up to date as possible on the status of your order for a Model 950, we’d like to take this opportunity to let you know where things stand. As of today, the first batch of Model 950s has arrived in the US. It will take a day or so for them to clear customs and be delivered to the warehouse. Once they are received, we will perform one more round of QA checks to assure that nothing was missed at the factory and to assure that there is no evidence of damage due to shipping. If all goes as expected, when the tests are completed we will insert the Owner’s Manual and remotes, re-seal the cartons, and begin to process everything for shipment. Given the above, we will ship the first 950’s during the week of April 8th. We had hoped to get some units out this week, but one or two minor, yet unforeseen, last minute delays in the factory and with our air carrier set things back one day too many for us to catch up to the original schedule. As you know, we have promised that no credit cards will be charged until the units are actually shipped. This means that on the first day or so of shipments there is an enormous amount of manual paperwork to be completed and double-checked for accuracy. We could have gained a day or two at this important back-end point by charging the cards when the orders were received, but that wouldn’t be fair to you. We made the decision long ago to make certain that your credit line is not impacted from any delays on our part. We trust that you will bear with us this one last time, but processing orders in this manner is done for your protection. We know that some might call this yet another part of the great "Outlaw conspiracy", but it has been our long stated policy not to ship the Model 950 until it is "ready for prime time." Having seen recently what happened to one of our worthy competitors when something shipped with a minor error (despite the best efforts of those involved) we wanted to make certain that the Model 950 was, indeed, operating as advertised. We’d much rather field all the flames in the various on-line forums for slowing down our schedule than ship a product we were not satisfied with. The next communication you will receive from us will be the confirmation of your shipment along with the tracking data for the selected carrier. We are committed to shipping all units from the first batch of 950s in the order received, so rest assured that your 950 order will receive the highest priority. Your patience will very shortly be rewarded with the best home theater value available: The Outlaw Model 950. Regards, The Outlaws __________________ Thanks for the update Outlaws!
