Next weekend, July 23. I am getting everything lined up now. Of course, my day job has decided to be extra busy at the same time (!).

This will be for pre-orders. This is how it works, in a nutshell...

I will be accepting pre-orders in batches. I size the batches so that I can actually deliver them as promised. Each batch of pre-orders will have a ship week associated with them. You basically just add the DAC to your cart like any other item and I ship the entire order on the stated week.

I cannot accept an endless list, mainly because I don't like being in a position of having people's money without a solid idea and ability to ship the product. I am working on a way to accept pre-orders going further out into the future, however. More on that later.

The downside is that the pre-orders tend to sell out very quickly. There is not a lot I can do about that, other than to keep offering more and more batches.

As for the time of day, I move this around for each sale to give different time zones a break. 6:00 EST, 12:00 EST, 18:00 EST, 24:00 EST

This is what I was referring to above, about holding people's money with no specific date of delivery. It seems like a recipe for disaster to me. Instead, we are steadily working to have more and more units available.

Nice work, Bryan! We can finally see the countdown timer

Question...
"(Pre-Order) Buffalo-III DAC (1) Buffalo-III Base Module (Assembled and Tested)
(1) AVCC Dual Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
(2) Trident 3.3V Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
(1) Trident 1.2V Shunt Regulator Module (Assembled and Tested)
"
Any options for the DAC chip alone?
