Final dimensions

Post by John Bowen » Mon Jun 20, 2011 10:49 pm

A number have asked about the final dimensions and weight of the production Solaris, and though I've listed them in the Specifications, I thought I'd better put them over here as well:

Dimensions - 39" x 16.73" x 6" (WxDxH); 98 x 42.5 x 15 cm (WxDxH)
Weight - approximately 33 pounds (15kg)
Shipping weight - approximately 38.58 pounds (17.5 kilos)

Cool,
I priced the shipping at 460 USD privately, At 60lbs. using UPS from Seigberg to Vegas.
I will recalculate and pray for 300 USD.... :!:
I had a case made in 2009 from A & S Cases for 42" x 18" x 8".
I asked for the old snake skin ( fake unscratchable Python, Brown ) and they were shocked as it never sold well, but I spent a few large there in early '90s on Amp Rack Mixer Shocks and 3 x Synths cases and they said they had the material laying around in the back....so I will also shocked.
That was 18 years ago.. :mrgreen:
I'm rarin' and ready.

Will have to check - the proto used a 12V external power supply that says 12v 4A for the output, but 60 Watt 1.1A for the input.

Jimmy, it was my understanding the Solaris units for the States were to be shipped to John's location, and then we would pay the shipping from there.
Perhaps John can elaborate to avoid any confusion. :)

That WAS the original plan, but Jimmy was interested in getting his Solaris right away, so we discussed sending it directly.
However, as it is now, the idea to ship units to me en masse is not being planned....I think they wanted to do this via boat, which would really add to the already long wait time.

I am so feverish to get mine I sent John my schedule. Since I am travelling in July on a riverboat I will send JB my position via GPS.... :roll:
Actually when the trip is over I pray there's a nice big check waiting for me and a Solaris.
The first thing I will do is power it up and try the ribbon.
Then I will send it digital outs into the analog inputs and see if it nullifies...
If it doesn't nullify I can go to Gearslutz and join in those year long threads where kids are arguing about their DAW being better than ProTools, etc..
