    Yes, MagicBox will be here this week and my return window is sufficient for the S8 that I can give it some time. That doesn't mean I won't be trolling Amazon on Prime Day and kick it to the curb if...

    They are sending the Magic Box. The agent seems unaware of the Voice Amps existance and insisted that the airrave was the only solution to voice issues. No wifi = no airrave.
