I've placed an order for an SB3 (Wired) and just wondering if anyone in the UK has received one as yet. If so, who did you order through? And if not, does anyone know when they're expected?

Thanks,

Tom

According to their website, www.advancedmp3players.co.uk are supposed to be getting stock in tomorrow (9/11/05).

A good company to order from as well, very good customer services before and after the sale.

A batch of SB3 white (wired and wireless) were shipped to our UK distributor
on Friday. They should be following into the channel. More is coming this
week!

Cheers,

Patrick

Doh! Of course I ordered the black. Any estimate on these?

Thanks,

Black units will start shipping tomorrow. Our backlog is long so I would
expect a one week delay for a substantial number of black players to arrive
at UK resellers.

Superb news, can't wait to get my hands on a new black SB3. I persuaded Audio-T to take back the Roku I was less than impressed with in favour of one of these beauties :-).

Did you manage to persuade Audio-T that the SB is better than the
Roku? They insisted to me that the Roku was much better. The only
excuse I could think of (and even then I doubt if it would have been
true) is that they were comparing with SB1, not SB2.

Well, there's a chap in their Swindon branch who's really excellent & not full of the usual bs that you tend to get in places like that. He didn't comment too much, but definitely raised an eyebrow when I mentioned the differences in features between the Roku and the Squeezebox.

dabs.com have got free stock of both wired and wireless white SB3 available now. Looks like they have shipped quite a few already as well.

All of the other dealers who have ordered white stock will also have received their stock today as well.

Hope there's a black one with my name on it going to Audio-T soon... :-)

I've ordered mine direct from SlimDevices about 2 weeks ago - I just received the e-mail that it's winging its way from San Jose overnight :)

White ones have arrived here and are shipping from today!

I don't sell Roku at all...

Hurrah! Mine arrived this morning - and even more amazingly, customs didn't stop it!

Is it home time yet? :-)

Mine was delivered today as well, and very nice it looks too! It's currently set up at work in a blatant attempt to gain some more sales for SlimDevices.

Talking of sales for SlimDevices......

Another friend of mine has just ordered a SB3.

Sean - could we have a system where by each referral translates to a discount for the referer? Perhaps 50 referrals would equate to a free SB - whatever is the current model?

You would need some kind of advance referal tracking system on your site etc

I was under the impression that www.cooltopia.com were associated with Progressive and might have stock first, but the site still states 'long lead time' for the SB3. I've been waiting and watching as I'm interested in the Qnap TS-101 NAS too (and would probably order both together) but that's also still listed as 'long lead time'. Any news on both Paul?

2005-11-14, 08:43
I should have read my PMs before posting. The TS-101 is expected around 15th November.
