First--I sincerely doubt that, AND, despite all their great reviews and huge fan-base, I have "issues" with Schiit. I have tried in the past (on three separate occasions), to purchase one of their products (three different ones). On all three occasions, the specific product that I wanted to try was on back-order.
MTO (made-to-order) is fine for a sandwich at a gas-station, and a 6-8 week wait-time is OK for a custom-build, but if a standard product is listed "for sale", then there should be at least one available for purchase. After three tries--they're out. The "best thing since sliced bread" does me absolutely no good, if I can't have it. If I want "teased", I'll go to a strip-club.

I have not owned Schitt, but I have looked at their site and nowhere does it say made to order that I see. I just think it's a wildly popular brand right now and since they are only sold online through their site, the demand is likely exceeding their ability to always keep up at times.
