    While we await completion of the chassis and case fabrication for the pre-production 535SE amplifier/preamplifier, we thought we'd like to share where we plan to go from here.

    We have put together a direct link page on our website with descriptions and illustrations.

    Thanks @uncola - we're definitely trying to hearken back to a "how they always should have been made" style and manufacturing standard. Fine woods, hand finishes, and top quality (and usually American) components wherever possible.

    Well I, for one, love the traditional style and the throwback Made-In-America craftsmanship. On the rear fascia plate you may even want to press the Electro Magnetic Amplifier Co. street address, as is found on prewar machinery and electronics - maybe even on that mill in one of your shop photos.

    Spelling error in this paragraph: "And this is what led Norman Crowhurst and others in the 1950s to suggest weighting distortion products depending on how far they are form the fundamental."

    This is in your 'Better than SET?' writeup for the headphone amp.

    @bazelio - Thanks very much! And that's a good idea. :)

    @MisterRogers - Thank you, that error has been corrected.

    Glad I suddenly found this roadmap, you can count me in for the full range.

    Sadly, I just found out about the 535SE beginning this week and tried to pull the trigger today.
    Alas, in the few days I hesitated to inform myself tht 535SE is sold out.
    So how do I go about getting one? Preo-order for a second run?
    I already contacted you beginning this week but didn't get a response yet.

    Any more news on 535se availability and the power amps and Delmonico speakers?

    What ever happened with Audio Guild? The beautiful looking EMAC 535SE has been sold out for a while now...

    Aye, we are unlikely to do another run of the V1 amp, though we might do a V2 update to build on some of the things we learned doing our production run of the 535SE. Unfortunately we don't have a timeline for either that amp or the remainder of the roadmap at this time. We are small, and 'old fashioned' 2 channel, non-bluetooth tech can be a tough sale when raising funds. :)

    We very much appreciate the interest from this group, and I'll try to update everyone once we have more information.

    That's a bummer. I was hoping to get an audition.
