I felt this would be a relevant thing to put here even though this applies to AMPS and DACS…or any other Schiit product.
They are going through massive part delays for products and I think many of us know this. What I had to learn the hard way though - do NOT order things bundled right now. Back at the beginning of February I ordered a Magnius/Modius combo to upgrade. I got notification first that the Magnius was on back-order and would be somewhere in March. The date of March hit and then it was the Modius that was on delay.
Ok, well by the end of March I decided on getting a Jotunheim 2 instead of the Magnius. So, no big deal, I cancelled the Magnius and went with the Jot2/Modius. Realizing the Modius was back-ordered till April 22nd and the Jot2 was ready to ship I thought I would be safe.
Well…today the Jot2 came up as being on back-order till May 20th or something. I emailed Schiit to ask about that. If you order items together they do not “hold” any item for when another comes in ready to ship. Instead they will wait to make sure both are in stock to ship to you. So…I may be on an endless cycle of shipping delays because by the time the Jot2 is ready the Modius may be on backorder again!
Now, I’m not angry at Schiit for most of this. Part delays is something that cannot be helped. I just wish the company would explain this all to you when you order items together (because I am sure I’m not the only one who does this to save the extra shipping cost of doing separate).
So, in closing I hope I can save someone else from going through this pain.
TLDR: Order your Schiit separate if you want them quicker!
