    I just found out that my DLS 10 is being shipped today. I should get it by Friday. What a great company PartsExpress is. They deliver on what they promise ahead of time.

    Now, is anyone interested in buying a slightly used Sony SA-WM20?

    Excellent! When did you order? I ordered one about a week ago and have yet to receive any e-mail saying it was shipping out. I did call today but they said they still haven't received the shipment of subs yet. Sounds good for you though!!

    The order was placed on the 14th. I really wasn't expecting it to be shipped until the 30th but on a whim I called and they told me that it is shipping today.

    If anyone else is interested in this sub but doesn't want to wait for PE, they are selling on ebay for the same price as PE.

    Frank,

    Those selling on Ebay are backordered as well. I was going to purchase one. I e-mailed the seller and he said that his supplier (Parts Express) was out of stock but that he expected them to be in at the end of January. Parts express has one or two for auction as well but there is a disclaimer stating that items my not be in stock at auction end.

    Jeff,

    Thanks for the correction. I just assummed that if there was an auction for the product, the seller would have it available.

    It seems to be more common on Ebay now than ever to sell products stocked through other suppliers. Not good business for an auction I think but thats just my opinion. Thats why the first thing I do before bidding is check the users feedback. Any delay in shipment usually shows up in negative feedback form.

    I'm sure there are others that will be very interested to see if they really did ship it to you. From what I gathered there are some who ordered before the 14th that still hasn't shipped yet (I'm one of them). When I read your post I called to check on my order and mentioned to them what had happened. The CS rep and his supervisor checked into it and told me that no subs had been shipped in a while. If you do get it Friday please let us know!!!

    Thanks

    I ordered the DLS knowing full well that it probably would not be until February before I would get it. If it arrives sooner, great, if it arrives later, well...good things are worth waiting for.

    For me it was $116. If you want to figure out how much shipping is for you, PE has a little shipping charges chart that is very handy.

    From PE it is $99.80 plus $12 to $31 shipping. $31 being the extreme over to the west coast. Still worth it imo.

    OK, I just got updated information from PE. It seems like someone jumped the gun when he told me that it would ship. Apparently they got in some of the subs but they were defective. A new shipment is due in tomorrow.

    Matt I would compare it to a Sony WM-40 for HT. To me it sounds just a little tighter. You might say it has a little more authority in its ability but it is very close. I like the look myself much better. For music I would give the DLS more of a advantage yet. I think the cost helps it sound better to???[​IMG]

    I haven't gotten it yet. It is due to arrive on Monday 17. Unfortunately in my part of the US we are in the middle of a bad ice storm so I may not actually get to see it until Tuesday. Sigh!
