Hello Kozmophone Family!
We are very sorry that the preparation for mass production is taking a bit longer than expected. This is because we have encountered various issues that we did not come across in the prototype stage.
One of the problems we are experiencing is the stability of the cylinder and that of the speaker.
Another problem that we are working on which we haven't encountered in the prototype stage, is the absorption of the vibrations of the speakers. We are testing more than one solution at the moment to find the best one.
Our main goal is to deliver a product of the highest quality possible, and we cannot rush into the manufacturing process before having every small issue and detail figured out.
Please know every single one of our backers is very special and important to us and we have never considered you just customers. You are part of the Kozmophone Team and your support is what brings the Kozmophone to life.
Regarding the delivery date, we are doing everything in our power to finalize the production in December. Another issue we are facing is that all shipping companies are incredibly busy at that time.
We promise not to disappoint you, and we will try to be more active here on Kickstarter and post more updates.
