Nope.  The estimates I occasionally get keep getting later.  Latest I heard was maybe mine may ship near the end of this month.  I'm really getting sick of waiting.

 

MM,

Have the new Jubs sent to me without veneer and I will veneer them for you, while I break them in for you.

😎

Here’s a solution.... just make that first batch as decorator models until the veneer shows up 😉😉😉

Let us take a step back for a moment.

 

The poor guy has been waiting for about a year and it seems the excuses just keep coming.

I believe these are priced at $35k-38k. I am sure the factory could figure out how to get some veneer (if that really is the problem).

 

Just my uneducated and cranky opinion.

I recall that @MMurg placed his order more than a year ago. That is a lot of time to possibly find another veneer source for at least one pair of Jubilees.

My preorder with PHT was placed on May 8, 2021.  I only did it that early because I naively believed the CES 2021 intro video when it said they were coming in "the summer of 2021".  LOL.  However, I don't think Klipsch even started taking orders from dealers until near the end of 2021.  The first I heard that manufacturing was started was around the PWK Birthday Bash in March of this year when Roy told me that the plant had started cutting panels and was supposed to start assembling them the following week.  I guess that's when the veneer issue was discovered.  That issue is supposedly over.  I believe manufacturing has started again but the latest delay for mine pair was related to the order in which the various finishes were being made.

 klipsch must be working on these issues  as we speak  ,  I'm sure they are just as anxious to get it all sorted out , after all these are the  Top of the Line klipsch  Heritage Speakers  .

No you can get them in Black Ash, or Teak and Lamp's wool. 

 

But there only got to make them a few pairs at a time initially is was I heard. The official launch was 6/1, so it's only been a week - Officially.

That's what I heard, no walnut yet.  It's disappointing to find out that while I may possibly have been the first person to order a pair, I will not be among the first to receive a pair.  😞

You are a very patient man, but I am sure the wait will be well worth it!!!
