Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?

After watching videos and reading positive reviews I ordered a pair of Caladans. It’s been 2 weeks and I have never received an email confirmation of sale.  The charge on my cc was from Spatial Audio.  I have called and left VMs twice and also emailed Clayton’s info address. Crickets ! 

Has anyone else experienced this?  I assume he’s extremely busy but I’m getting a little anxious.



So Clayton called me back this evening to let me know that he had my order.  There was a snafu with the company that processes the credit card receipts.  Seems like all is good for now.  They are not building any units yet.  He says probably in a week or so when the baffles arrive.  Fingers crossed. 

You know, yeah Clayton’s new endeavor may be a small shop with limited resources to answer calls etc. (especially after CAF), but the man obviously knows what he’s doing and feels he has something else to say that I find really intriguing given where he came from. Plus, he’s not a newcomer and has an established reputation to protect in the audiophile community so screwing people over is likely not in his business model and certainly not in his best interest. Last, I know there’s at least one review scheduled from an established reviewer, and my money says it’s gonna be waaay positive and prolly use the word “bargain” on steroids so you’ll be happy you got your order in before that review goes live. Take a deep breath and believe — you gonna be rewarded greatly and I’m more than a bit jealous as I’ve hugely enjoyed the Spatial demos at shows and always thought they were among the best in show, especially considering cost. Congrats and please follow up with your impressions if you could.

Thanks for the reply.  I certainly will provide an update, probably in the March timeframe, after they arrive and I’ve had a chance to listen to them with my various tube/ss electronics and room setups.

You should feel nervous- I would. And posters below "assuring you" that all's well and "trust" and "they're sure that everything's fine" are well intentioned but uninformed and don't know anymore than you do. Not getting any response for your order and no communication isn't confidence inspiring. You more than likely got the call from them based an them reading your post right, too much of a coincidence otherwise right? Credit card orders are typically not supposed to be charged in full until an ordered produict ships by the way...hope it plays out in your favor eventually but let us all know.
