Frustrated McIntosh Owner

I’ve been a satisfied McIntosh separates owner for quite awhile. Two months ago, I got the bug to upgrade, so I decided to trade-in my MC462 stereo amp for MC611 monoblock amps. I reached out to my local authorized dealer that I’ve done business with for years, we worked out a deal and placed my order. He told me he expected he would have the monoblocks from McIntosh in about a month.  I called my dealer yesterday asking for an update and he’s now telling me that McIntosh won’t tell him when my order is shipping, let alone if they have been manufactured yet.  He even went so far as to inquire with his McIntosh regional rep.  I trust my dealer and know that Covid has stressed a lot of manufacturers, but the lack of communication from McIntosh to their dealers has got me concerned. Basically what I’m getting is, they will ship when they ship- it could be in 8 days or 8 more weeks, possibly longer.  Have any of you experienced any issues like this with McIntosh lately?  Is this a sign of any bigger issues with them?

Wrong, many states are showing COVID cases rising again, especially in the conservative states.  If you conservatives keep up not wearing masks, there will be less of you to vote, which suits me just fine. 
Stereo 5.... Did you get that from CNN, or MSNBC?

We have a media that has been taken over by a lying political machine that is determined to transform the United States into a nation that will not longer threaten the esteem of inferior systems which are run by political tyranny.

Many people today can not understand how the Germans could have been so stupid to follow Hitler. Guess what? We can know now.

For we have people among us today just as stupid, blind, and hateful...

History repeats itself. The founding fathers who wrote the Constitution would not be surprised in the least to see how so many Americans today are run by selfish emotion, not by principle. If Joe Bidden wins? The United States of America will cease being the USA. Only the name will remain.

Why? Like the Germans who were stupid and followed Hitler? We have the same breed of emotional haters amongst us today..... They will gladly believe anything they are told as long as it hurts those whom they hate and are jealous of....
Geez, Genez, take your rants elsewhere!! This is an audio forum, for goodness sakes, not FOX!
+1 sid42 we don't need this hear the real world is bad enough. And genez the real statistics are out there if you simply take the time to look.

you are describing the political party you are associated with. FYI, watching OAN and FOX is the reason your party is full of clueless, stupid and hateful people. Change the channel, there are news outlets including BBC which are more truthful. Did your know Rupert Murdoch’s son REFUSED the head job at FOX because he won’t head a company that gaslights the public every
