502DAC's are in hand being tested and will also ship Monday/Tuesday. We also have a handful of I2S to RJ45 adapters so anybody who's ordered one of those those will also go out next week.
The PS Audio I2S over HDMI adapter is being re-spun, but was at a lower priority with everything else going on. We can bring that to the forefront now and hopefully have those ready in a couple of weeks. Unlike the RJ45 adapter they have active components and required they be put on our assembly machine.
NOTE - Due to our normal shipping person being out with Covid, we had a temp person handling packing and shipping. Unfortunately it seems a small number of PI2AES and 502DAC units that were ordered without cases may have shipped without the proper hardware. If you get your order without the correct hardware please contact us ASAP and we will either send the correct parts or we can refund you (up to $20 USD) if you buy them locally. For the PI2AES or 502DAC ordered without the case you should have the following items in a separate clear zip lock bag:
M2.5, 5mm length, Male-Female Standoff x 4
M2.5, 18mm length, Female to Female Standoff x 4
M2.5 x 0.45mm, 6mm length, Panhead Phillips Screw x 8
Also, for those that did get proper hardware, you may have gotten 8mm screws instead of 6mm. Again, let us know and we'll either ship them or refund for local purchase. Amazon carries several options, but this is the lowest cost:
We are sorry about this and appreciate your understanding.
Many thanks from the Pi 2 Design team, and stay safe!
