Shipping in the middle of March. Loosely translated, don't expect it any time during 2021...maybe spring 2022....maybe.

Drop kinda sucks these days. it all started when they changed their name to look more like a generic file storage website at least the emails stopped saying (formerly massdrop) that was kind of sad for a while

It's still a very popular product. I've only seen minor discounts from Chinese vendors. I don't see how Drop can provide or competes with supply and demand for these. We now have competition from the likes of Shenzenaudio and Apos audio that is trying to mimic what Drop is doing. From what I've read, they are one and the same company; one based in China and the other in Oakland, CA. The landscape for access to ChiFi products has changed. Special collaborations might be the only way to be profitable for Drop at this point. That being said, I am really enjoying my Topping D90/A90 combo. I will say that it maybe too good? If you have poor quality audio (mastering), you will hear it. I think it's the state of affairs for audiophile gear. It's getting so good that the mastering/recording of 80%+ of music ever recorded is not to "audiophile" grade/standard.
Very insightful stuff. As for the mastering comment, it's much much worse than that. . . 99% of digital music has an absolutely abysmal dynamic range because of increasingly aggressive compression, aka the 'loudness war'. If you look at the actual dynamic range of most recordings, you would actually be best off getting the vinyl version, despite the medium's much, much higher noise floor. Much as failed hires formats (SACD, HDCD etc), the benefit is in mastering for an audio enthusiast market, rather than the masses (http://dr.loudness-war.info/) To call the situation ironic undermines the sadness of it all. . . as you say, consumer grade equipment is maxing out not just production gear but also the measurement gear to even qualify it. It's a real shame the cynicism of the production market starves this amazing mass-enablement.

DROP no longer does drops for most audio products, they just sell products at MSRP. What started me using this site in the first place is no longer their business model where they work with manufacturers to deliver great products at a discount do to preordered volume. Now it's just another e-tailer :'( Bought the A90/D90 on black friday for 15% with free shipping and it arrived from China to my doorstep in Chicago in 2 days. Faster than UPS/Fedex/USPS right now.

"business practices"... they're a business like any other. their "business practices" are really no better or no worse. Personally, I'm surprised they haven't been bought out by Amazon or the like before they were crushed completely by online competition. You don't sound like somebody who really does know what they like; you just sound entitled and uninformed.

Got this along with the THX AAA 789 Amp. What headphones should I purchase to take full advantage of this setup I've been saving up for?

Focal, anything less and you're cheating yourself out of the best sound money can buy.

Subjective but sure spending $2000 on headphones hopefully would give a good experience lol

Alright, if Drop doesn't want to give us an immediate discount and continue with this point system, they might want to make their "Drop reward points" tripled in size, bolded, and converted to USD. (what's the point of showing the points and not what they're worth anyways?) So we can have actual discussions here instead of people complaining about 'no discount'.

Drop just does not seem to get it anymore. Same price on Amazon, and ships within a day or two..... this does not until November.

And from what I see no WARRANTY? Apos Audio sells it for $699 with a 2 year warranty. Yes you get $70 worth of points but that's to buy something else and spend more money! I'm done with the DROP!

Completely agree... sadly, when mass dropped from the name, so did the special appeal and savings the group buy model provided. I'm very close to turning down my account notifications, have not seen a solid appealing deal in quite a long time.

I can't help but notice - only 4 sold. HAHAHA. That tells everything that is wrong in this site. No further explanation needed for the MSRP price, long wait time and Drop Rewards Points trap.
