Like the first poster said, Little dot sells the MKIII for 199 USD + $45 shipping to North America. So if this groupbuy reaches its lowest price point, it will be $225 after shipping compared to $245 direct from Little Dot. Not sure if that $20 is worth saving since you have to wait for such a long time for the groupbuy process.
Anyways, I used to own the MK III and now I own the MK IV SE. The MK III is a great "budget" tube amp with lots of tube rolling capabilities. Personally I prefer the m8161 driver tubes but there is a little dot tube rolling guide on Head-fi if you wish to pursue tube rolling. The amp excels at driving high impedance headphones such as Beyers and the hd600/650 but will do a fine job at driving lower impedance headphones as well.
Not sure how accurate this is, but in the product description, it says:
"Both domestic and international orders will be shipped by LittleDot. Estimated time until orders are shipped: 5 business days after the drop ends."
Seems like shipping won't be that long
Well you'll have to wait 5 days after the groupbuy ends for Little Dot to ship them out to the massdrop center. It'll take probably a week for the amps to reach the massdrop center. Then add another 3-5 days from massdrop to your house.
For this group buy, because of the sheer weight of the amp, it actually works out cheaper for everyone to have Little Dot ship the amp directly to the members participating in the group buy. As a result, we won't be using our fulfillment center for this one.
It typically takes 5 to 7 business days for the amp to be delivered to addresses within North America.
It is possible. I got my single unit directly from LD in 2 weeks.
