Gerald had posted that an update would be out this week. That thread is now closed. Peter

    Did you happen to see this? 7 days ago

    I want to apologize for the lack of updates.  We are as busy as the proverbial one armed paper hanger around here so time flies.

    As I previously communicated, we have a much larger than usual beta test group for Power Genius XL.  Since my last letter sent to the backlog customers, we have been busy upgrading 100% of the beta group units.  The first ones went out shortly after my last communication and the last ones will most likely go out on Monday.  Given the sheer volume of units in the field, it has taken that long to get the units shipped in, upgraded, and shipped back.  We wanted to have at least two weeks of beta testing with the upgraded units before GA release.

    Many of the upgraded units have been in operation for a that long now so I expect that we will get at thorough update from the project manager, Graham Haddock, early next week.  He reported today in our company meeting that there are no hardware issues reported from the field testing so far after the upgrade.  You can see that Ria has been using the amp with great success for a few weeks as reported earlier in this thread.  

    Once Graham gives his report next week, I think we will be ready to give more specific delivery information.  

    Thanks for your patience.  It is a great product but we wanted to make sure it is bullet proof before we began broader shipments.

    There has been a slight delay.  Gerald is currently out of town on business and will be back next week.

    The amps continue to undergo rigorous testing by the alpha team.  This is not a product we want to rush to market.  The design goal to have a SS amp that is full legal limit and built like a tank that can take the best we can throw at it and keep on going. 

    There should be an update forthcoming.  Thanks again for your patience.
