Limited Editions begin shipping tomorrow!

We received the first batch of acrylic platters today, and will finally begin shipping out Kickstarter Limited Editions tomorrow. The remainder of the platters are being produced as we speak and production will be complete by early this coming week. Our manufacturer estimated that we will have the full lot of platters in hand by Monday of the following week. We are just finishing up shipping non-LTD editions, so production capacity (currently about 120 units/week) will be dedicated entirely to shipping out Limited Editions in the coming weeks. Your patience through these delays has been appreciated, and we can’t wait to finally get the rest of you spinning!

On a side note, we will be notifying local backers of our pickup dates within the next few days. Please email or message us with any questions about your turntable!

      Not received any notification for local pick-up. I've asked directly if I've missed an email. (FB isn't a mode of communication I trust... or use)

      Excellent, picked up a pre-amp last week so I am ready to go. Can wait to meet the team behind this great product when I pick up my orbit in person.

      These look awesome and I am so excited to listen to my vinyl on the Limited Edition U Turn very soon!

      I will have a tough time deciding which LP to play first but have it narrowed down to three - Pink Floyd "Wish you were here", Beatles "Abbey Road" or The Doors "LA Woman". It may come down to drawing straws or Rock, Paper Scissors!

      Thanks for keeping us updated on this turntable :D

    12. Creator Mike Ormerod on November 14, 2013

      Wahoo, finally!

    13. Creator Daniel Callahan on November 14, 2013

      Awesome. I think there is a certain color missing from the shelf and the Red Sox would be disappointed! :)

    14. Creator Michael R. Lemke on November 14, 2013

      Great news. Have sent two emails with no reply. Hoping that's because you all are busy packing up my table. Black Orbit Plus.
