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.



I have heard from a good source that Clayton is contracting with Spatial Audio to fabricate the baffles and assemble the Caladans. Spatial has the equipment, a trained and experienced crew, and lots of capacity. This is a good thing for both Clayton and for Spatial. I suspect that they are awaiting delivery of a component or two, but once they start to roll, things should go smoothly.

I, too, have had my card charged, but I’ve been able to get to know Clayton over the years (I bought the original M3s, the Sapphire M3s, and now the Caladans). I’ve been to his shops, and he even personally delivered the Sapphires to my home.  I have complete trust and confidence in Clayton. He’s solid. Though I’m anxious to get my hands on the Caladans, I’m taking the view that patience is a virtue and in due time I will be amply rewarded!

Having a receipt after a significant cc charge should be expected, not sure if email confirmation is the same. Glad it worked out

Long lead times were common from Covid supply chain problems. Many manufacturers were affected. Long lead times. Probably much better nowadays.

Congrats on your Caladan speaker purchase - they seem like a very rare sonic bargain 

@ozzy62 @speedthrills You need to fully read the posts.  Speedthrills clearly mentions the coincidence of @whiteknee hearing from Clayton after posting to this forum.

@roxy54 with regard to the caps it was unintentional, I didnt catch that the caps lock was on…tx


I don’t have a dog in this fight since I have no intention of buying a pair of these speakers. That said I did buy X3s from Clayton a few years ago, which are long gone now. The transaction was trouble free and I believe Clayton to be a stand up guy. Unless I’m completely wrong here, I think anyone placing an order will receive what they paid for.
