ESX-8GT MKIII availability

Post by Joey P. » Fri Aug 02, 2019 10:41 pm

Is there a reason the ESX-8GT hasn't been available for months?

I ordered an ES-3/ES-5 combo with a pair of ESX-8CV and ESX-8GT back in late April. Everything has been received except the ESX-8GT MKIII

ES's site has said that the GT has been "available now" the whole time, but no one seems to have actually had it in stock (I do see some MKIIs available at a significant markup).

From what I understand, ES is on vacation until mid August, I guess I shouldn't get my hopes up?

Bump...

Anyone receive an ESX-8GT MKIII in the last 3 months?

Don't know about ESX-8GT MKIII, but Disting Mk.4 hasn't been available for a while either.

Disting MK4 availability

Post by eight1 » Fri Oct 04, 2019 10:51 am

Wondering why so long: ordered Disting MK4 months ago from Vintage King USA after they dropped price. Processed payment but the say still waiting for shipment. Trying to be patient but it's a long time.

It's in stock elsewhere e.g.
https://www.perfectcircuit.com/expert-s ... g-mk4.html

In general I'm against the practice of taking money for items not actually in stock.

Agreed on taking money for non-stock items. Never anticipated such a long wait. Any thoughts on when Disting 4 might reach them? Seems like now in stock with many USA vendors except them.

That's up to the distributor - not something I directly deal with anymore.

Understood and appreciate that.

Now being told via email: "Expert Sleepers" says shipping mid November.
It's been a moving goal post. I guess that's the cost of a discounted price.

Still waiting for that Disting4 from Vintage King USA. Waiting about 5 months but they say it's in hands of Expert Sleepers and their distributor (as Vintage King continues to take more orders for it). Never thought it would take this long.

Had a Disting on order from VK since August, and just cancelled. But the second ESX-8GT I ordered from PCA in April came in last week.

Now Vintage King says end of January for Disting4 to be back in stock - that will be 7 months.
