Here is the latest status on Maestro shipments:

  1. We sold out first large production run.  Orders exceeded our pre-order backlog plus the most optimistic sales forecast.

  2. We experienced a higher than expected incoming inspection reject rate on certain plastic components on the first production run.  This left us short of parts to complete the first production run in the time frame originally planned. Our supplier is remaking those components at their expense and we expect them to arrive at our contract manufacturing partner here in Austin by mid September.  These parts should cover all but the most recent orders.  We ordered plenty of extras this time to cover any fall out.

  3. Maestros are built in large lots for economies of scale.  The next production run is on order with our best estimate to begin shipments from that lot in late October, assuming long lead components arrive as promised from all vendors.

  4. If you placed your order prior to end of July, there is a reasonably good chance you will receive your unit from the parts that are arriving in mid September.  
Thanks,
Gerald
