That's odd, I bought from Gotham and have had to deal directly with SAX. They've given me their FedEX account number, and I'm to arrange shipping there myself.

I admit that I'm a little miffed. I would have liked to have a new unit waiting for me stateside to switch out. But I understand SAX is a small company and the M2D2 is so nice that I'll get over it.

I'll keep folks updated on turn around time. I expect to ship mine out tomorrow.

My pre shipped back to Trew Audio today.  Trew will be shipping to Sonosax for repair and then arrange shipping back to me.

You may be able to send this to Shapeways and get them to produce it for you if you don't have access to a 3D printer with durable enough materials.

We have a cool "Makespace" in my town that has all sorts of gadgets that you can play with if you pony up for an annual membership. I should do it this year for stuff like this. I want to take a couple of AutoCAD classes and do things on my own.

You are correct.  One of the JWSoundgroup users, Patrick Tresch, did send this to Shapeways for printing.  I think that this is actually Patrick's design.

Update: SAX gave me their FedEX account code and the M2D2 was shipped back to them on 13 December and is back stateside on the 24th, en route to my place. Very fast turnaround!

I don't have my unit with me at the moment (see above) but am I right in assuming that the USB driver root folder is on the M2D2 itself, and that once the files are moved to that directory, turning the machine on takes care of the update?

A question about the SX-M2D2 dynamic range. I read that the SX-R4+ dynamic range of 135dB is limited in the USA version to 114dB because of patent issues. Is the SX-M2D2 also limited in the US version?

EDIT: Got the answer to this question: No, it is not limited.

The SX-R4+ is limited as shipped, because of the Zaxcom patent, but the 135dB range is restored via a software update via the sonosax website. In other words, the limited range is a legal fiction.

I don't know if there is a similar issue with the SX-M2D2's dynamic range. But if there is, it is a non issue, solved in minutes by anyone with an internet connected computer.
