    I believe it is. I've looked everywhere else, and it's over $100 now, 5 years later.

    Acoustic Sounds - $64.98 reduced from 69.98 - LIMITED STOCK

    I didn't care 5 years ago, but with this new turntable making everything sound so sweet, and even watching every track here on the Blu ray, all day today, couldn't talk me out of the vinyl. A Bellman on top of it !!!
    Anyway, this is for those that maybe were on the fence.

    I doubt it. Mine's been in "Accepted" mode for over 2 days now. :shrug:

    Yes same here, I thought it was on the way since I got the shipping notification emails for two of my orders.

    I've just sent AS an e mail asking what's up.

    And I never heard back. I'm well acquainted with Media Mail being a shining example of " you get what you pay for," but when it comes to Acoustic Sounds' use of it, I've never seen this much of a delay. This makes two that are just "out there," actually three if I include my roll-the-dice order from Movie Mars, for an OOP 2018 RSD set, they claim to have at a very good price.

    " Hi Mike,

    Thank your for your patience as I investigated this issue. The warehouse has informed me that although USPS picked up the package the driver failed to scan it (as well as many other packages), which is why it appears the shipment has stalled. Rest assured though that the package is in transit. It's possible a driver or facility may scan it at a later date or it may be delivered. If you have not received the package within the next 12 business days, please message me and we can investigate further and replace your order. "

    Kind regards,

    John

    Now I'm down to the lost James Gang Rides Again from Music Direct, shipped 3 weeks ago Thursday.
    And the mystery MovieMars order of an ABB RSD set.

    Never has buying albums held such intrigue for me before. :laugh:

    @aperfecttool - would you mind posting here when your Crossroads shows up please ? If I haven't gotten mine yet, it'll at least give me hope.
    I find it hard to believe that no one else has scanned mine, along the trail, in the last 6 days.

    Mine just got scanned in Des Moines.

    Yeah, the warehouse guys say it's the USPS carrier's fault, the tracking makes it look like they didn't pick up until today, 6 days later. I just know that this is it for me, and Media Mail. Always a problem, always a complication, yet a Priority shipment from Texas to Tennessee can get here in less than 48 hours. BS.

    Des Moines is fine, that's just where it finally got scanned.

    Salina KS is where my very first girlfriend's family used to live (22 years back, Goddamn!) and from what I remember it was a small town like maybe 3-4 streets crisscrossing each other. I can't imagine it just sat there in their post office for like 6 days but hey it seems to be moving now. I haven't bought much from AS but this is the first time I have experienced this kind of delay.

    By any chance, are some of these delays caused by bad weather or flooding issues??

    I got lucky with this one as I bought it from PopMarket back in 2016 for $24.99.

    As far as shipping from Acoustic Sounds, I've seen the same thing on some recent orders where it seems to sit in Salina, KS for a few days....

    I have no earthly idea, since I don't keep up with the weather outside of where I live, and the USPS doesn't send out such information either.

    usps tracking is pretty much a joke anyway.
    ups and fedex at least updates when there is a weather delay

    A member just posted in another thread, how his Acoustic Sounds purchase sat in the Salina PO for a full week, before finally departing.

    I can't believe this keeps happening with every shipment I've ordered lately. Nobody's scanned it in two days, and when I contacted Acoustic Sounds, the attitude is "it'll get there when it gets there."
