Tim, I can empathize. A few years ago, I designed a fairly simple looking, but actually rather complex, built-in cabinet to house all of my electronics excluding speakers. I don’t have the skills to do the construction, so I had to hire a talented woodworker to build and install it. He was very meticulous, and although the end result is beautiful, it took a very long time. I was bereft while the work went on for several months and I was without vinyl. Rich

Tim, BTW, I used to spend a lot of time in Phoenix and Tucson this time of year. The weather was always very pleasant, although every so often there was a prematurely hot day. I can’t remember seeing any rain, except intermittently, and I don’t remember anything colder than 60 or so. The only snow I saw was on the tops of the mountains. Do you live in northern AZ, where the weather may be different, or are you experiencing the effects of the recent storms that are responsible for spectacular skiing conditions in Colorado. Rich

That's really a bummer, Tim. :( Are you dealing directly with VPI or a dealer?

Tim, I feel your disappointment and I respect your urge to throw in the towel on the mag drive upgrade. All I can say is that the mag drive upgrade will be worth the added delay and inconvenience.
