Sorry for the delay in writing, but 2019 has been a challenging year to say the least. We lost John Kenchenten, our favorite Canadian dealer May 18th, after years of fighting renal failure and diabetes: https://www.yatesmemorial.ca/notices/John-KENCHENTEN
Then Carroll Lam, who was instrumental in nurturing the Casablanca in the US with his Cassie Tips List lost his long battle with myelodysplasia August 2, but not before completing three 20 to 25 year careers in his 83 year life: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/tucson/obituary.aspx?pid=193602553
As you can tell by their obituaries and the comments, they were both incredible men who will be missed!
Our 23 year dealer Tommy Wells and his wife were in a bad accident last year and just got back to work in May, and Chuck Owen's wife was in a wreck, and caregiving has been his top priority.
The trade war has been a challenge too. It now takes 2 months to get a pallet load of equipment from Germany, and it could get worse. We just got our last pallet order of this year, and only have 4 units left from it, which are identified here : www.macrosystem.us
All of the new Casablanca 4 systems come with the new Arabesk 8, which does 4K Discs as well as Blu-ray, and DVD. In addition the more you spend the more software you get in the basic SW package, as well as the pick any 2 SW Titles for free, or pick any 3 SW titles for free on the high end systems. Click here for the details on each model here: www.macrosystem.us
Those who purchased a new Casablanca 4 system from the pallet we got in September, should have received a free license code for Arabesk 8. As soon as the US Beta Team releases it, you can launch Bogart 11, go to Settings, click System, then click the bottom button "search for update". This button connects to the German SW server and updates you to Bogart Windows 11.3 with Arabesk 8. They were released in Europe a week ago, but they are mostly hobbyists, so we recommend waiting until the US Beta Team releases it. We are mostly professionals in the US, so we really put it through much tougher tests.
Single unit air shipments take about 4 weeks now, so there is still time to get delivery before Christmas, but act really soon. Also we have some popular laptops and desktops which were lightly used for compatibility testing, and are now for sale at attractive prices, with a good set of software and a 6-month warranty.
We will be closed for the Holidays from December 19 to January 5, 2020. For System orders please order ASAP. For SW orders you should order by Friday the 13th of December! Speaking of Software, for every paid add-on SW title you order before Dec 14, get a free Casablanca Club pack of your choice: There are 6 years to choose from: 2013 to 2018. If you buy a Casablanca 4 System, get all of the 6 Club packs for free.
