Did anyone else placed an order back in October with shipment date Dec 10?

Yes, and loving the V280. I should also note the design is different to that shown in Drop's original photos...
  • Different front faceplate design
  • Different (cheaper?) XLR connectors (no "PUSH" button/clip)
  • Different (cheaper?) RCA connectors (silver finish, not the original gold-plated ones)
The coaxial DAC has a gold-plated RCA connector which really contrasts with the cheaper silver RCA connectors below it. Although I didn't order the coaxial DAC, I ordered optical(!). Also glad to have received the smooth black casing. I don't like the powder-coated grey they use on some units.

Why they told me they had to cancel my order due to back order from Violectric? May I know when did you receive the unit?

I can't speak for Drop or Violectric so I don't know why they told you that. Sounds like you were the victim of a stock shortage/miscalculation? Mine arrived on 5 January 2021. Actually it arrived in Australia on 28 December 2020 but it takes an extra week to get to the right side of the continent.
