What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

The Maraschino Video Series will be designed to benefit existing and future Digital Amp Co customers!

We wish to cover the following topics with our new videos:

  • New product announcements
  • Use of our products in various systems and configurations
  • How to pack our products for shipping (unpacking too)
  • Miscellanous (accessories, industry trends, etc.)

As you can see, descriptions of our products are just the beginning. We would like to provide other information, including a glimpse into some interesting ideas about the future of audio. This includes set-ups for:

  • Home Theater
  • Convenience Audio
  • Car Audio
  • Much more!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video could be worth a million words!

We have researched the effect of video on marketing, especially through social media such as Facebook. We feel it would be optimal to use our YouTube Channel for storage and delivery of our video series. We have a few videos there already for testing.

There are some variables involved in posting videos on social media for marketing. One is if the content is stored on YouTube or the social media platform. When posting as a YouTube video, a link to the content is posted, not the actual video. We are testing to see what works better on various platforms. The effect this has on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is also under investigation.

Generally speaking, social media posts with video receive many times the attention of photo-based posts and hundreds of times the attention of simple text posts.

Links to our videos are also suitable for blog posts. We also have a board on Audio Circle where we can post links to our videos.  Our thread on AVS Forum is another place to post such information.

Use of videos to sell demo and refurbished goods is also a consideration. We have a continual flow of demo pieces from upgrades and shows. Videos describing the equipment for sale are very helpful to sales people.

Here are some of the products we wish to make videos about:

  • Stereo Maraschino
  • In-Line Maraschino, including “hanging instructions”, and accessories
  • Desktop Maraschino and accessories
  • Megaschino -- our new higher power Maraschino, offered initially as a Classic Cherry upgrade
  • DAC DAC and accessories (like our new USB to SPDIF converter)
  • Speaker Snakes

More Information:

We will be adding more information based on your suggestions. Thanks again for checking our project out. We hope you decide to support our Kickstarter project.  CHECK OUR PROJECT UPDATES FOR MORE INFORMATION. We have introduced two new products in our updates with lots of information.

Please make a pledge to support our project.

THANK YOU FOR VISITING !!!!

Risks and challenges

RISKS ARE LOW

Digital Amplifier Company has successfully designed and built amplifiers for 20 years and counting. We have produced videos as well. Confidence is very high that we will be able to create a sucessful video series about our products.

We will maintain our focus on the customer. This has given us a growing and loyal customer base. We feel this video series will have a significant return on investment. We predict that these videos will be helpful to existing and future customers.

CHALLENGES

Our biggest challenge with this project is dividing up the subject material into individual videos. What to cover for a specific product is relatively simple, but when it comes to various use cases for our equipment, there's a lot to cover.

One other concern is attaining .

HOW WE WILL USE THE MONEY

The funds will be used to pay our videographer as well as providing the necessary equipment for the video shoots.

SUPPLY CHAIN / TIME LINE

The time line for delivery of the video series is not strict (three months end-to-end proposed) but must be rapid enough to keep up with additional product introductions.

No supply chain issues exist for this project aside from sourcing for rewards, which occurs as normal business operation.

    NOTE: This reward is also available as an add-on to other pledges. See our FAQ for more information.

    A 2-day special offer! You will receive the DAC DAC ($1290 Value) of your choice – High Spec or Tube Like version.

    The High Spec (HS) version delivers extreme detail and ultra low noise (124dB SNR) and ultra low distortion (0.0004%). The Tube Like (TL) version delivers that extra smooth tube sound without the noise of tubes (120 SNR) and the shortest signal path.

    NOTE: This is the demo version without the logo on the top of the DAC. Some minor wear and tear, but generally all our demos are in excellent to near perfect condition.

    Shipping is fully insured and charged separately. Backer is responsible for all taxes and duties when shipping outside USA.

    Maraschino Module Development Platform

    Introducing the Maraschino Module Development Platform! This stereo amplifier platform allows quick and easy development of Maraschino Module applications. Full documentation package includes the schematic and bill of materials. This development package includes:
    - development board
    - two Maraschino Modules
    - 48V external power supply
    - documentation package

    Some technical information about the modules: Power is the rail (30-60VDC), 12VDC, and +/-5VDC. The modules are basically a miniaturized Maraschino board with external low voltage power supplies. They are only 1.8 x 2.0 x 0.5 inches and can drive up to 1000W (music peak, thermally limited, 1.8Ω load). SNR is 118dB. Low impedance output for damping factors up to 2000. Sonics are smooth, fast, and clean, like all Maraschino Amplifiers. DC-100kHz bandwidth. These modules can be socketed for upgradeability up to 400W into 4Ω. See our Updates for more information.

    Add $150, and we'll attach a gold binding post stereo speaker output harness. Add $500 for an additional pair of modules.

    Shipping is fully insured and charged separately. Backer is responsible for all taxes and duties when shipping outside USA.
