Wow, looks really big to me for a 2 channel preamp....

Yes, but the space is needed for internal battery pack and input/output transformers. The stepped gain controls are also likely to take up more space than typical pots.

I hope that I'm wrong about this but I'm not optimistic that we'll ever see this pre.

Oh I'm sure it all makes sense for a location classical type. But for me and my taper needs it's just too big.

The prototype does look at least V3 size or so.  That looks like the same prototype that was being displayed a year ago.  May or may not be what is finally put in production (assuming we eventually get there). May still be ok if you are open taping and don’t mind lugging some gear.  Clearly not attractive for stealthing.

Is it odd that Pueblo no longer has the Isleta listed on the website?  I put a deposit down, and I'm not exactly feeling encouraged by this.

You should contact Pueblo and ask for a refund.  Refunds were issued months ago, which was pointed out to me by pohaku.  I don't think that you'll have a problem securing your refund.

Yeah, they even paid some interest on the refund.  They may have just missed you.  I believe that occurred with dactylus and they refunded him.

Actually, their entire site seems to be down at the moment.  Nonetheless, you should have been refunded months ago.

Gentlemen, thank you for the heads up on this.  I didn't realize that Pueblo had stopped development on the unit.  I just emailed Scott about a refund.   

With gratitude,
Stuart

Gearslutz post from Scott yesterday:

Hello GS'ers,

It is true that I have had to suspend the ISLETA project. There are a number of reasons for this reluctant decision. The most significant of which is economic sustainability.

Consider that Pueblo Audio (a very small company) manufactures not one... not two... but SIX flagship products. Four models within the JR-Series product range and two within the OLLA DI product range. The effort required for building, maintaining inventory, sales, promotion, accounting, client and dealer relations, etc., is very formidable. With recent changes in costs for raw material and taxation, it became evident that adding a seventh product to the line would over extend the company. I have invested much $$$ and R&D into ISLETA and feel this is will be a "hit product". None the less, it must wait until economic and market climates are more favorable. For now ISLETA must remain in hibernation.

One step I am taking to help sustainability is that the four channel JR4 and P4 models will become inactive when current stocks are sold out. This will help reduce inventory work load and hopefully make room for ISELTA in the future. So if anyone has been interested in these particular models, now may be the time to pick them up before they're gone.

The JR-Series preamps will continue on with the JR2/2 two channel preamp and the PS34 power supply. Though I have not officially announced this, I will let you know about a new development. In tandem with the standard JR2/2, this summer I shall offer an upgraded version: the JR2/2+. Added to the Phantom Channels will be a gentle 35Hz Hi-Pass Filter. Added to the Mic Preamp Channels will be a Gain Boost switch which adds +15dB of gain to the Main Outputs, bringing the total max gain to +80dB. These new features were implemented without disturbing the preamp's established high performance.
