The header time in the email is not very useful. That time is the accepting computers time stamp. Sorry guys. Only outlaw knows the order...
My header time also was before 9 :p , so I guess my box is a little slow relative to outlaw.

Good point, stabie. ALso, I suspect that the order in the line among those in the first few minutes is probably pretty irrelevant - it's not like they're going to fill the pre-orders by shipping them out one unit per day. smile

Anyone recall what the initial shipment of the 950 consisted of? I just wonder if we are jockeying over an allotment of 100 or 1500 units? I assume the number must be relatively small otherwise a waiting list would be silly...

Outlaw didn't release numbers, and I don't expect them to do so in this case either. The first shipments of 950's were air-freighted to the US due to development delays, so the initial batches were probably smaller, but the initial shipment of 990's is coming in by freighter - I doubt they would have loaded up a slow boat with a "small" batch. I'd be afraid to even hazard a guess at what an initial production run means in terms of number of units manufactured, though.

Waiting lists like this have become common for manufacturers that operate via the Internet-direct model. You can see the exact same approach used by SV Subwoofers and AV123. It's similar to the way that traditional manufacturers will allocate certain numbers of units to their dealers (many of whom have waiting lists for customers in their area). The benefit here is that, unlike many brick & mortar dealers, companies like Outlaw don't ask for your money until they have product in hand and ready to ship. In contrast, I've had dealers want full payment months in advance to guarantee me a spot on a waiting list - and those dealers are often alloted initial shipments of two to five units.

Has anyone got a confirmation email who placed their name on the list later than 945pm? I put my name on the list at approx 925pm and have not received a conformation.

I submitted my reservation Sunday night within minutes of the form becoming available, but did not receive a confirmation email. Thinking I may have made a typo, I re-submitted Monday night. Still no confirmation email. Anyone else having problems?

A future (hopefully soon) proud owner.
