    Just when I was getting a bit nervous, my quaddy dozen ordered on January 5 appeared at my doorstep. And yay, no cracked trays this time!
    Well, this is my 4th order from D/V and there's only a couple of titles from their MC catalogue that I'm still missing...

    Ready for another quadtastic season? Here's your shopping list for this year's surround titles: http://www.quadraphonicquad.com/forums/entry.php?225-2017-SURROUND-RELEASES

    I mentioned it in the Dutton classical thread, but I wanted to post it here as well - I had two orders go missing in the last while, and the shipping time for replacements seems to have improved drastically. As reported elsewhere Dutton are using a new shipper and it really seems to have helped - one of my orders arrived in under three weeks, and the other only took 10 days.

    I used the ship with tracking option (11 UK pounds, $14 US) that uses shipment via Ascendia for the Ray Davies and Paul Mauriat SACDs. Received them in 13 days.
    Worth considering.

    Ditto. The fastest I've ever received an order from D~V [for four QUAD SACDs]. I did have one cracked case but it was easily rectified as I have a stash of replacement RBCD cases on hand.

    Based on past Vocalion orders, I'm expecting them to arrive 3 weeks after the order was placed. On that schedule, they are still on track.

    At this point I would just be happy with an "your order has shipped" message.

    Me too,

    It has been 2 weeks for me since I ordered. So far, no email, nada, nothing that said "your order has shipped".

    Waiting, waiting....waiting.....

    Regards,
    If someone had the wherewithal to create an e-commerce site for them, they could have enabled a button that would send a boilerplate "Your order has shipped. Thank you for your business." message to the buyer's e-mail address. I have dealt with a number of Internet sellers, and they ALL send shipping notices.

    Gentlemen, while I concur that shipping notifications would be helpful, Mr. Dutton, IMO, is working as fast as he can to master these very LOW, LOW priced QUAD SACDs [with four more due next month] and I'm sure, in time, he will have e~mail shipment info available but in the meantime think of it this way: MoFi announced the 2 SACD STEREO only edition of Billy Joel's Greatest Hits two or three years ago and its finally available at $45US. So, Music Direct [or, whoever the vendor] will send you an email announcing shipment. Fine and dandy.

    If D~V released B. Joel's Greatest Hits TWO~FER, it would probably list at $14US and would probably be multichannel.

    Let's NOT be picayune. The Man [Mr. Dutton] is working as fast as he can and, IMO, is doing an astounding job.

    When I placed my order with D~V, I printed out a receipt and did not pay extra for expedited shipping. When it arrives....it arrives! Patience is a virtue. I'm sure if your shipments are delayed, then you can email HIM with your order number and he will do his best to rectify it.

    I ordered the Pure Prairie League SACD at the beginning of last week via Amazon US and Dutton Vocalion was the seller. In a matter of hours, I received a shipping notice. I thought about ordering directly via the DV Website but ended up using Amazon for a couple bucks more.

    I did that once and it was still shipped directly from D~V.* I'd rather order direct from D~V because as one poster pointed out....why put more $$$$ into Amazon's pocket when D~V will greatly benefit from direct payments to their website.

    [*unless ordering from Amazon's third party vendors]

    Whereas Royal Mail Standard (as opposed to Budget) International postal service advertises a target delivery time of 5 to 7 working days.

    I'm sitting on my condo porch (just a rental) overlooking the Gulf of Mexico...I see some dolphins munching on some unsuspecting fish, oh, I'd say 400 ft from my view.

    As a result, I have no clue if my order has arrived back home...and right now...not sure if I even care.

    I've had past Dutton Vocalion orders sent by Royal Mail.
    Typical time was 3 weeks from order to delivery.

    Back to the latest order with shipping via Ascendia/Swiss Mail.
    Just crossed over to the USPS in New York. So it should be here this week.

    Looking forward to it.

    You didn't read what I said, correctly. I purchased at Amazon and DV was the seller. In other words, the Market Place seller, not Amazon. Amazon didn't send the shipping notice, DV did. Also, I paid the extra money to order via Amazon. So, DV didn't lose any funds.

    How long from order to shipping? Is it still about 3 weeks, then?

    NOT to belabor the subject, but I was under the impression that Amazon would still receive a commission for 'allowing' D~V to sell goods from the Amazon website...as Dutton Vocalion would be considered a 'third party vendor.' And it IS Amazon's policy that all vendors acknowledge receipt of sales with an email.

    Actually, a smart move by D~V as it's a smallish company and I, personally, would never be aware of the company had it not been for QQ forum.

    Exactly right! That's why it cost me more for the disc on Amazon versus getting it directly through them. That extra bit of money I paid goes to Amazon. I know how it all works. I used to be a retailer on both Amazon and eBay. Though, I still sell personal items off eBay but not too much since their fees are unbelievable now.

    It depends, in La-La Land, it could add a few weeks to delivery time.

    I just noticed I screwed up on the above sentence.

    It should read: That extra bit of money I paid goes to Dutton Vocalion.

    I genuinely think you were right the first time, although they may have raised their price to cover actual postage costs rather than what amazon fix it at.

    My latest order arrived yesterday, 16 days from date ordered to front porch. Slightly better than usual.
