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.



Has anyone who ordered speakers received theirs yet? I understand the initial limited construction/assembly was beginning the week of the 18th of December.  Or has anyone received any information on the pending shipment of their speakers? 

I traded emails with Clayton last week. He did not mention if any units had shipped but offered this update, “Regarding scheduling of shipments, we are running a little behind my original scheduling plans due to getting our cabinet supplier all settled. The results were worth it, as the finish quality of the baffles is well beyond what I could have expected. The first group of baffles look extremely good and well sorted and are at the level of fine furniture, so I think you will be impressed.”

He went on to describe the reusable shipping carton they have designed and the fact that some of major reviewers have requested speakers for formal reviews so was suggesting that it was good that I got in early  

My order was placed in mid-November so I’m hoping for March. 

@whiteknee Thanks for the info. I ordered on the 12th of November. Probably close to when you ordered your set. I will keep my fingers that we can still get delivery in February vice March but it is what it is. 

I finally got an email last week confirming they indeed have my order, I placed my order on 11/1/23....and production is based on that date. No shipping date was implied, just my order placement. I am glad to at least get a response, and looking forward to the speakers.....I do wish it had not taken 2 months, 4 emails, and 4 voicemails to get a response, but here we are. I'll post once I receive the Caladans.

Thanks for the update!  I placed my order on December 29th, so maybe in two more months, I will have a confirmation.  I am okay with waiting but would love to know a timeline.  This is the 1st time I have ordered something from a smaller company, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I am taking the time to do more research around the components I will run with these.  I am wide open and hoping to start this build at a good spot.  If they were to show up today, I would start with my Schiit Ragnarok 2 and a streamer.  I had the pleasure of talking to Clayton at Capitol Audio Fest, and he noted he runs some Schiit amps at home paired with these.  They had tubes at CAF, and it sounds great.  Looking forward to deliveries and feedback from others.
