Thanks to commenter Keith on my “Consistently Inconsistent” article, we learn that the Eton Elite Satellit HD receiver is now shipping. Keith purchased the receiver from Amazon.com and is expecting delivery on August 18.
Note that over the half-hour it took me to write this update article, Amazon’s stock of the Elite Satellit HD dropped from 19 to 10!
There are also updates on availability found on three other web sites:
- Eton Corporation: No longer does their page say “Arriving this month – reserve yours today!”. Instead, the radio is shown as “available today!”
- Hammacher Schlemmer: their web page indicates
“In stock – available for immediate shipment”.EDIT: Wow, that was quick! Just after I posted this article, HS changed their web page to “We regret that this item is no longer available”.
- Universal Radio: Gone is the “available late August” statement, and the radio is available for adding to your shopping cart and checkout.
This is great news for those who have awaited the receiver since its announcement in 2019, and especially for those getting the radio at the original pre-order price (myself included :^)
Keith, thanks again for the heads-up on your Elite Satellit HD order. Please leave some first impression comments when you receive it!
