I've been keeping my eye on this recorder.  I noticed that Gotham Sound mentions a Jan 2024 release date (link below).  Not sure if this is firm or reliable.

I talked to a Gotham sales rep who I 've done some business with in the past back in September and he said they were firm on October but to anticipate delays - all manufacturers are experiencing delays due to supply chain challenges and then they went and changed the feature set meaning they might have had to redesign the hardware.

I've been watching this but I'm not holding my breath.

I went ahead and replaced the piggy back battery hack solution for my Korg MR1 so I'd have a small line in only recorder.
Honestly I may just keep doing that - it sounds really good and the battery solution is only $20 or so every few years.

Gotham's the one who said it was a January release date, Deity has just said "coming soon".  They're starting to deliver the Theos system, so hopefully the PR-2 isn't too far behind.

They announced a change in the feature set - so likely a redesign - a few months back. Not surprised it's taking longer than expected. Reminds me of the Zoom F6. I waited so long for one of those I gave up and got something else then bought a used one for half price on Reverb six months after they were released.

I'm real interested in the Deity. I need a new small 2 channel recorder for lopro stuff. The Korg MR1 I've been using is still working and can do quite a long show after modifying the batteries but I'm not sure how much longer that thing will keep spinning the hard drive. Not having mics built in to it is very appealing for me.

Same here.   Would rather wait until they get it right given the price point.

From ProAV in the U.K:

Thanks for your email.
 
I asked Deity and they’ve responded it is not available just yet, I will ask our web team to change the lead time to reflect this. Apologies for the inaccurate lead time. Hopefully it begins shipping soon, they did not provide me a date.

Gotham's website now says:

Model:
PR-2
Release date: April 2024

Follows the pattern they've been guessing.  When date arrives, add 3 and guess again.

I called Gotham earlier this week and learned that "Call for Price" is just an artifact of their website which defaults to that button when there is no price listed.  I signed up for the notification on the Deity page for the PR-2 when it was announced in the middle of last April, and have heard NOTHING from them in nine months.  Even if they decided to do a redesign this summer, I would expect the new parts to be priced by now, so $TBD even now is odd.  When this was announced, it looked timely and interesting.  Now, I'll likely wait for something better (96 kHz, 4 channel) unless the PR-2 sound is a clear improvement on the MMA-A.

Orders from certain “smaller mic builders that share a name where some people get married” ship faster than this thing. Zoom F3 it’ll be methinks.

Comparing Diety to that guy is about as low a blow as you can go. But warranted in this situation.

Face it folks; this thing is either vaporware or endlessly tied up in patent lawsuits.

I think the PR2 will show up eventually, but the market for the theos is booming, and they had to redesign both because of the zaxcom patents.

To be fair, Church Audio products have actually been delivered and are in widespread use, unlike this vaporware from Deity. Their failure to communicate honestly is particularly galling, given that they are something more than a one-man operation.
