I am a member! Met Pro LED just arrived...

Post some pics
Congrats

#2602 4 years ago

is it true that the magnet can move a little bit?
It feels very different than the magnet of the totan

#2603 4 years ago

Was going to get the colordmd, but at $486 I may get the smartdmd instead...

Why $486? Even with tax and shipping that sounds too high.

#2605 4 years ago

That's cheap. To get one here in Canada now it's just shy of $1,000,000 CDN.... or thereabouts...

#2606 4 years ago

Was thinking the same thing. It's $399. SmartDMD is $330. Either way it should wind up being a $69 difference.

#2607 4 years ago

State tax maybe? If he lives in the same state the company is?

Quoted from Adios:

I factored in state tax.

Anyways, buy whichever feels right to you, I'm personally counting the hours until I can load the color file into my Metallica's ColorDMD, it's going to be epic.

Hopefully soon. I'm installing mine tonight.

Delivery is scheduled, finally officially joining the club on Friday!

Want to provide us a source/verifiable proof as to why $486 when every ColorDMD display has always been $399?

#2612 4 years ago
Quoted from NPO:

Well with tax and shipping it would be about $450, I don't get where the extra cost is coming from, since it's an oddly specific number.

I have officially joined the club! The local freight shipper said they had it on their dock Friday, the sticker on the back said it was built on Thursday. That is pretty impressive.

I have a shaker, cliffys, sling & sparky protectors to install but those can wait until tomorrow. Right now I just want to play a few games and take in that new pin smell

Right on man. Did you happen to notice if the cab had the holes pre drilled for the shaker motor?

#2617 4 years ago

Now I just need to learn how to play it. Never played it before so I don't know the rules yet. Any good links to rules would be greatly appreciated.

#2618 4 years ago

I'm in just picked up a new one last week at the mgc.

#2619 4 years ago

I didn't check. Figured I would put in the shaker tomorrow. I wanted to just get a few games in tonight since I didn't even get it in the house and setup till about 7pm. I will check it out tomorrow after work and let ya know.

#2620 4 years ago
Quoted from damageinc55:

I bought a shaker for mine when i picked it up and it had the holes and t nuts already done from the factory and they even dimpled where you mount the controller board.

#2621 4 years ago

And just a quick question. I seen awhile back a sound upgrade for it. What have you guys done to make it sound better? I fell this game needs to be cranked to max when you are playing.

You should be good to go... My LED Pro was all setup. At first, I looked at the instructions with the shaker and said "I'll get to this later". Couldn't believe it when I took a second look inside the machine and saw everything was already there.

#2623 4 years ago

Yeah I should have checked. I did the same. Read the instructions and said I'll do it tomorrow.

Yes, get an external sub!! Best mod eva!!

#2625 4 years ago

Fairly easy to instal the shaker, about a half hour job if you take your time. I set mine to "moderate" use in the system menu as maximum was too much for my taste. Definitely a mod worth the $.

#2626 4 years ago
Quoted from Roostking:

I definitely agree on that one! Polk PSW10 on mine, sometimes I forget to turn it on when I start a game and can't believe how weak it sounds without the sub.

Or put one of these in..

#2628 4 years ago

Shaker will take 15 minutes to install, including reading the instructions twice and fumbling for some of the parts, it's super easy.

Whoo hoo! Game on the way from JJ @ Exchange.....can't wait!

I have a 12" sub hooked up to my afm and it sounds great. I have a klipsch 10" that is going on it. I was wanting to upgrade the the mids and highs.

#2634 4 years ago

Awesome to hear about so many NIB Met machines stern is churning out. You all wont be disappointed!

Only thing that would make me sell my Met pro is if stern ran another premium run. Back in 2013 buying my first pin, i think I made the right decision to get the pro NIB. Spending 5g on a pin that i had no idea how to take care of was kinda jumping into the deep end of the pool already. But now that im a 3 pin owner, im thinking maybe the extra $$$ would have been worth it.

Anybody in MA area getting one? I would love to play one before I consider buying it

Thanks
Gary

#2638 4 years ago

Any issues out of the box with these new runs?

#2639 4 years ago

Looks like I will have to wait until after Stern's move for the next run of Met Pro's to get mine. Congrats to those that are getting yours now.

Did you check with JJ at GEX ?

#2641 4 years ago

Yes, colored MET is going to be awesome, so beautifull Dots. Going the SMARTDMD route. Have already installed the raspberry Pi and hooked it up for the moment to an external display while awaiting delivery of the LCDdisplay controller from china. Colired MET is 80%+ finished.

And you guys should consider yourself Lucky, ColorDMD costs over here with taks and so on approx USD 500,- .....

Have SmartDMD already fully installed on ACDC but I think MET is going to be even more epic. Included 1 random pic of smartdmd on ACDC

Thanks Rick, my sparky air ball protector showed up today! If anybody is looking for a good mod at a great price contact Rick, Fast delivery too..it beat my machine here

I already paid my deposit with Tilt. I ordered right as Stern was ending the latest run of Met. and I knew I might not get one out of that run. Hopefully it won't be too long.

I second this. Good price for a little extra protection. Thanks Rick

Great guy, bought mine from him and had it in 2 days. Couple small problems when I opened it up (completely missing the springs for drop targets) called him and had parts with in a few days. Great service and a good game you will not be disappointed.

This current run is over already? They didn't even start making them until last Thursday (I was told this because my MET was originally supposed to be delivered to MGC that day - 9 April but was told that Stern started this run on Thursday and my game was then delivered to MGC the next day - 10 April - it also helped for the factory to be very close)
