Please allow additional time for transit and tracking updates
HOW SOON WILL MY ORDER SHIP?
Due to increased capacity challenges that our shipping carriers are facing, the listed shipping timelines are our goal, but during this period please allow additional time for transit and tracking updates. We are working hard to get your orders out as quickly and safely as possible!
The majority of our in-stock orders will be processed within 1-5 business days (M-F), regardless of the shipping method chosen during checkout. However, some orders may experience slightly longer than normal processing times. We are processing all orders as quickly as possible and we will automatically notify you via email once your order has shipped.
PLEASE NOTE: During peak holiday seasons, weekends or high traffic promotions - processing orders may take additional time beyond the 1-3 business day window.
For US Orders:
In stock, non-pre-order items shipping to the United States are sent by UPS or US Mail (USPS) depending on weight and usually take 7-10 business days to arrive.
For APO/Military Addresses:
Please expect an average transit time of 10-21 business days.
For International shipments (including Canada and Mexico):
International orders will be shipped international post (mail) and may take up to 21 business days to arrive. International shipments may be held by your local Customs Authority for an additional 10-14 days depending on the customs laws in your country. Therefore, it is best to allow 4-8 weeks for delivery.

Orders placed on weekends will ship Monday. If an item is out of stock, it will ship expedited once stock has been replenished. Expedited shipping is not available to PO Boxes or military addresses.

.ALAC file downloads explained:
.ALAC is a digital download format associated to Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). These are hi resolution audio files used for storing digital music in lossless format without losing any sound quality from the original audio source (i.e. an original master studio or live concert recording).
Can I Download .ALAC files to my Handheld Device, iPhone, or iPad?
In most cases, Yes. These files are compatible with many digital music players and/or software. As they are larger files, they require more hard drive space than MP3s and FLAC ones.
FLAC file downloads explained:
FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is an audio coding format for lossless compression of digital audio (preserving the sound quality from original audio source, i.e. an original master studio or live concert recording). Digital audio compressed by FLAC's algorithm can typically be reduced to between 50 and 70 percent of its original size and decompress to an identical copy of the original audio data, requiring less hard drive space than .ALAC files.
Can I Download FLAC files to my Handheld Device, iPhone, or iPad?
FLAC files require conversion to ALAC for iTunes playback, all other digital music players and/or software support them as they are.
