4 weeks is not coming soon enough. It's like Christmas when we were kids.

4 weeks is long. I recently had to wait for a back order processor for 3 weeks and nearly went on a killing spree... but it would have involved talking to other people so I stayed home and ate the couch instead.

Come on. When ever I hear someone crying and complaining about waiting for their speakers, I just tell them to try waiting 12 weeks!!!! That's what I had to do...

(just kidding about the snotty comments. Heck, even 1 day of waiting seems too long. Just remember that you are going to be happy for many, many YEARS to come. A few weeks is a small price to pay for a long time of great listening. Oh and welcome to the club! Happy to have you... oh, and I WAS just teasing again about the snotty comment... I did have to wait 12 weeks, but I'm really a nice guy. \:\) )

Did you find any change, Eric?

Lots of change; that's pretty much all that was left in my bank account!
To answer your actual question, yes, the D2v is pretty awesome, both in functionality and in quality.

I meant the coffee money down the back of the couch you ate. \:D

Sorry. I was too excited by the unexpected audio-related turn of the thread to read the question properly! \:\) \:\)

Sometimes the audio related stuff on the threads does get a little distracting.

I had a 4 week wait for my factory outlet purchase of my m80s, vp150, QS8s and ep500. I got my receiver a couple of weeks before my speakers so I connected it and ran speaker wire ect. I took off work at lunch to go to the DHL center and pick up my speakers. It took my two trips (had to come back for the ep500), but I got it all home in my jeep cherokee!

Good luck on finding ways to kill time!
