    I wouldn't be too concerned with 'inferior' coming from XiTone. Too much time and effort have gone into building the brand.

    I was just concerned that I would need two sets of patches between the two rigs. The amp sounds very interesting and I would love to hear what you think when you get it.

    He said the Dayton is "very punchy". My interest was in the base Wallimann wedge. I'm not sure, but, I'm still wondering if the base unit comes with programable DSP or just the tweeter pad switch.

    The GM-50 module is shown on the website for the base Wallimann wedge. IIRC, thought I saw pics with the GM-XT-100 in frankv's wedge, and that model may possibly be the DSP programable unit. frankv may be the one to clarify. He posted it in this thread here on this page: https://www.mylespaul.com/threads/xitone-group-buy-discussion.386907/page-9

    I'm still fine with the wait for the Matrix without knowing the track record of the Dayton yet. If I go stereo later, I can always try the Dayton in the 2nd cab.

    Sure does appear like it could be a great full featured amp. Creates an all in one component solution for Mic as well, especially with a 5 year warranty on the module. I'd like to know more as well.

    Only thing I don't like, so far, that I've read is no volume control for the Bluetooth. I can see myself accidentally taking some paint off the walls before I learn my lesson.

    That is why I went ahead and ordered it. I can't see Mick sending something out the door that isn't great. I'm just paranoid, in general.

    If it makes you feel better, I still have about two months to wait =)

    Please let me know how you like it, once you test it out.

    the long wait I can put out of my head, now that I know they are close to shipping on the other hand...

    definitely, the grandkids are back in school and the neighbor sold his house and no one is in it right now.:jam:

    This is the end of a 9 month upgrade from the hd300 and Presonous E44s.
    I now have those in a separate setup for the grandkids

    I received them on thursday. I just now had a few minutes to unbox them and plug them in. Wow, what a difference!
    I still have to tweak my patches for the loud volumes.
    But everything sounds great at low and high volumes. Pretty impressive.
    I'll take some pictures in the next couple of days.

    Congrats saks. Glad to hear. I'm ready as well. Delivery tracking shows it's in my town, but they don't deliver on Sunday, so, I'm stuck holding out till Monday afternoon. Pics would be great.

    It surely is. After this XiTone gets here, sound monitoring will no longer be the weakest link in my signal chain.
    Thanks to all who have posted.
    Tracking shows: Out for delivery.

    Anyone get one with the Dayton amp yet? I'm not sure if the October timeframe was for orders placed for this group buy or just for newer orders.
