They only have one set. I buy all my tubes in sets of six, so if I can’t drop as much money on tubes as I did on my private cabana at the Fyre Festival, what’s even the point

I have to wait for the 15 Feb 2019 date as I am outside of the US.  I haven't found the list of countries that will be included in this, has anyone else seen that information anywhere?

Just tube dreaming over here, hoping they ship.  I would put them into my Kaiju and BeePre........
Niagara 7000
Benchmark DAC3L (XBOX1 and TV)
CA Performance w/ Satisfy Turntable
Talismann V2 CA Cartridge
Tavish Designs Adagio Vacuum Tube Phono
BHSE Amp
Stax SR-009
BeePre 300B w/ BeeQuiet and Cinemag Transformers
Kaiju 300B w/ DC Filament
Jäger Speakers
Transparent and Benchmark Cables

I'm in the same boat (I'm in the UK). I've been hoping/assuming we'll be in the next batch. Maybe an email to 300b@westernelectric.com to check?

I did email them, and if they write back, I will post it to this thread!

I still cant decide if I want to get the Emission Lab 300bs or the Western Electrics.  I have not heard either.

Why not get a pair of each. Try them in both your BeePre and Kaiju. You would get to hear any difference yourself and decide which you like best. I know it’s an expensive experiment but your ears should be the judge. You might decide you like both, i.e. WE in the BeePre and EL in your Kaiju.  Reguardless please post your comments.

I'm in the UK. I can probably also look forward to a bracing customs bill 🇬🇧
