Default Re: Command 8 shipping?

I ordered one from Sweetwater almost immediately after the Command|8 was announced and I'm still waiting. The first date I heard was April 30 and now I'm hearing May 7. They appear to be pretty scarce right now. I'm a bit surprised to hear people say that Alto Music has them because some very big retailers don't even have them on the floor to show off...

I think ALTO is a VERY BIG dealer, probably the biggest Digi dealer. And the shipping and service is the best, I just can't say enough good things about Jon at ALTO

It's not in stock yet, they told me next week sometime...you have to place your order and wait in line I guess, but they don't charge your credit card until they ship it to you.

I would rather buy from sweetwater and wait a little longer than some unknown online source.

Alto is far from a unknown source.
I find it bad that Sweetwater who I have dealt with several times in the past, have yet to ship any units.
They always advertise themselves as a big Digi dealer but this says otherwise.
The problem stems from several dealers being unaware of the release of the Command 8 prior to it's release so they flooded Digi with orders at the same time thus creating the backlog.
The way you know this to be true is that if you asked about one before Digi made their official release the stores knew nothing of the product.
You would have thought they would have been ahead on something like this.

Dutchmuzik, while your at it also mention how quickly they had in out their door and in yours.
All my dealings with Alto have been excellent.

Got a call from sweetwater this morning...shipping out today. This might sound crazy but I prefer to pay a little more if I need to and buy from sweetwater...paid $1,100 (no tax, free shipping) After dealing with all the so called pro LA music stores and other online places...sweetwater is always on top of what they sell and actually supports their products. I actually prefer calling sweetwater sweetcare for support than digidesign...usually when you buy from any other dealer they won't support products they sell...they just tell you to call digidesign yourself.
