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 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.

@speedthrills Why are you the most concerned in here about the subject, not even dealing with Clayton's company?

@knock1 Not sure what you're concerned about- the OP expressed concern about ordering the speakers and getting no response/no purchase confirmation for two weeks. I commented that getting no confirmation, no acknowledgement of the order should be concerning as its not typical (despite other well intentioned members commenting that they "heard" that parts had just come in and that the OEM has a good reputation etc. IMO there was reason to start wondering what was going on. 

As a 30 + year card carrying member of hi-end, including 4 years as a dealer, I have owned many speakers alternating between box (monkey coffins: MCs) and OB. IMHO, one can get significantly more sound for their money with OB, that is if it is done right: My first OB was; Accoustat 2+2s with both interfaces and servo amps, which I much preferred, several monkey coffins later, Genesis Vs with servo sub, Scaena entry level (6ft towers, IMO the best MC: msrp $9000),OBs of late; Magnepan 3.5Rs (tried everything, but no bueno), a couple others but for 3+ years now Emerald Physics 3.4s single 12" woofer with 1" concentric polyester tweeter with OUTBOARD XOs- which eliminate vibration from being in or on the baffle/base (and it's there where, IMHO, I think the Caladans will fall short). BUT fairly easy to correct but for $3000ish, forgetaboutit. And likely someone will come up with a kick=ass outboard XO to bypass being on the baffle

Most of all, I am excited for all the preorders, as my journey has consistently proven OBs are very special


Nope !! My wife and I got the Marzipan LRS+, that is what my wife calls them, and we are still breaking them in, but we are really happy with them. Our first Dipoles, a little different than the Quads boxes, but really like them. Takes lots of power !! to get them to sing though.
