You may be right; I also opted for dual 5A power supplies.

I also went with 5A supplies but have not shipped so that’s not it. I wonder if it’s not related to whatever “free gifts” one chose. If so, bad planning for sure. To not get my units shipped with the first batch definitely leaves a sour taste. I wasn’t trying to be backer #1 but I thought these would be a good fit for me and made sure to get in on the deal on launch morning.

I went with the op-amp option. Won’t use MUSES02 on these amps but I have other places they may go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I already have WAY more XLR cables than I know what to do with anyway!

I was hoping they would ship from an (in my case) European warehouse and not directly from China... duties and fees are 35% here :facepalm:
I'd asked them about this concern (shipping to the UK in my case), they said I wouldn't have to worry about duties or fees, I imagine it would be the same for you.

This is what they'd said to be precise:
Hello,
Most of the products will be shipped from our warehouse in China, but we cover all duties and taxes with our shipping logistics to UK.
If you are concerned about customs duties, please rest assured.

What do you reckon for #697 then :-(
I'm backer #111 and no shipping email yet. I took a flyer and ordered their V3 Mono*2 + SP601 speaker package and they delayed the speakers until end of August, so not sure how/when this package will get shipped.
 
Off topic but might be of interest to the readers of this thread: the wiim mini roadmap date for 10 PEQ appears to be updated to say 6/30.
 
I inquired Fosi Audio about my Kickstarter order. Here is the response I received via their Web site chat:

“We will be shipping around the 20th of June. Please be patient as orders will be high and we will ship in chronological order of purchase!.

@Fosi Audio
not really....

I am # 92 in the Kickstarter queue.
Sounds very good to me. I am #56. :D
However, I didn't get a notification, yet, either. I backed the monos with two 10A supplies and two opamps.

Number 2028... order to France

I assume he will send by country (or by type adaptateur CN/UE...) and not by number
 
I got a reply from Fosi that there was a delay for the 10A supplies (which I DID NOT ORDER) and that is why my order did not ship. Man oh man, not inspiring much confidence if they can’t even get THE FIRST order fullfilled correctly.

Ugh sorry to hear that man. What a shame!

I've only just watched a review on these from iiWi, I'm guessing this a budget friendly way to power KEF LS50's properly?
100%; I’m only using ZA3s right now and they already power my LS50 Metas fine. Just looking for that little extra from V3 Monos. Plus I’m passing my ZA3s onto my dad since his PS Audio HCA-2 is getting QUITE long in the tooth!

For me, this is pretty typical of anything ive bought on kickstarter or indiegogo
