      Got my boombox today, well worth the 7 month wait! speakers are superb, I will have many days use with this. Do you plan a Berlin Boombox 2? Because i'm down to pre order it right now! If you have similar projects in the works keep us kickstarters posted! Using a Nexus S with a onboard Wolfson WM8994 DAC with Voodoo sound enhancements.

      @Div3r5ity this problem keeps popping up every now and then. I am sorry, we're trying to resolve it.
      @Jevon Archie thanks!

    4. Creator Jevon Archie on November 7, 2012

      Got my Boombox today. I'ts AWESOME!!!. As a designer myself the work you've done with this is inspiring.
      Very good work my friend, and all the best in the future.

      trying to download the djmixes now that i have my boombox but on the website it says that the tracks are currently unavailable.

    6. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on November 6, 2012

      @rcamp there's no tracking number. German Post sys it takes 6-9 days to Chile. The last rewards have been shipped last week, so please have a bit more patience. (There were more than 300 rewards to ship, so it took a while)
      thanks,
      Axel

    7. Creator rcamp on November 6, 2012

      Does International Berlin Boombox were sent??..If yes, there exist a tracking number, and how long do you expect that takes it to arrive to my place in Chile?

      Thanks and very regards for your product.

    8. Creator Div3r5ity on November 5, 2012

      Got mine today . 1 word - Awesome!

      Hallo Johannes,
      ja, der Versand hat begonnen. Bis Mitte nächster Woche sollten alle Kickstarter-Pakete raus sein.

    10. Creator Johannes Schmidberger on October 18, 2012

      Hallo Axel, werden die Boomboxen schon verschickt wie im letzten Updaten angekündigt?

    11. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on October 8, 2012

      @David look at update #15 for the username and password: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/axelpfaender/berlin-boombox/posts/301402

      enjoy!

    12. Creator David Jones on October 8, 2012

      what are the username and password for the DJ mixes? thanks

    13. Creator omar on August 26, 2012

      hello i facing difficulties to download the mix, i did once, but the mix stops after less than 2 minutes when i play it on my ipod... and i tried many times again to re download it, no succes... can you pls find an other way for us to dowload it easily it would be great, have a good week end

    14. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on August 10, 2012

      @Div3r5ity Maybe in the future, but a bluetooth module would double the price. And affordability was one of my goals. But I appreciate your effort to add more "B"s to the name....

    15. Creator Div3r5ity on August 9, 2012

      now that i think about it, why didn't you just make the boombox bluetooth? Bluetooth Berlin Boombox!

    16. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on July 2, 2012

      Please check the latest update for news about the DJ-Mixes

    17. Creator Goophoba on June 30, 2012

      So when can we get access to the downloadable DJ-Mixes?

    18. Creator Gawyn Lloyd on June 10, 2012

      any update its been a while?

    19. Creator Vince on June 9, 2012

      Any new updates when we will get our Berlin boom box?

    20. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on May 28, 2012

      Hi Robi,

      the pledge can't be changed after the Kickstarter has ended.
      Don't worry I will set up something so everybody who missed it can pay for shipping.
      You are not the only one!

    21. Creator Robi Stanton on May 25, 2012

      I am trying to work out how to "manage my pledge" and put in an additional $10 for international shipping - can you please let me know how / where. Thanks!

    22. Creator Wally Wiesmore on April 25, 2012

      Gawyn it is a jack plug

    23. Creator Gawyn Lloyd on April 25, 2012

      I didn't realise it was just for iphones :( i thought it was just a jack plug

    24. Creator Markus Beyer on April 25, 2012

      Hallo Alex,

      ist aktualisiert.
      Die 20k schaffst du noch!

      Sehr cooles Projekt btw.
      VG Markus

    25. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on April 24, 2012

      Hallo Markus,

      Nach Frankfurt sind es auch $10 (entspricht ca. €7,60)
      Danke für Deinen Support,
      Axel

    26. Creator Markus Beyer on April 24, 2012

      Hi Axel,

      danke für Deine Infos bezüglich der Versandkosten.
      Versendest du die BoomBox von Berlin aus?
      Ich bin selbst in Frankfurt. wie sind da denn die Versandkosten?

      Danke für kurzes Feedback.

      VG Markus.

    27. Creator Bernadette Sharples on April 23, 2012

      Thanks for letting us know about the changes in production and shipping - super nice of you!

      Will pledge regardless, however :) We're not customers, rather have a vested interest in your achievements. So good luck!

    28. Creator David Jones on April 23, 2012

      the news regarding production + shipping is ok - start up projects often have some teething problems and changes when it comes to production. the changes will no doubt greatly improve production and the final product. good luck

    29. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on April 22, 2012

      Hi Wally, I will look into that possibility, but at the moment it has not planned.
      best,
      Axel

    30. Creator Wally Wiesmore on April 22, 2012

      I'm a Android user, will a eq preset that is compatible with most players be available after launch?

    31. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on April 20, 2012

      thanks Roger for your comment on shipping.
      That's how we do it!

    32. Creator Roger Ho on April 20, 2012

      I'm in Canada... you can change the amount of the pledge to $60 instead of $50 in the green box for the shipping charges.

    33. Creator Anton on April 19, 2012

      Should I pledge 60$ if I want a Berlin Boombox to be shipped to Canada?

    34. Creator Quentin de Lattre on April 18, 2012

      @David Jones : That's also my case. I'd be interested in knowing if shipping outside the US (Switzerland) is charged after funding the project or if it has to be included in the pledge.

      Thanks !

    35. Creator David Jones on April 18, 2012

      well done

    36. Creator Patrick Busch on April 18, 2012

      Congratulations! Can't wait :D I hope it comes in time for summer :D

    37. Creator Patrick R. Gschwind on April 18, 2012

      just backed $70 :) project funded!

    38. Creator Eetu Korhonen on April 18, 2012

      Cool, just $70 to go!

      Any estimates so far of when we can start expecting our Boomboxes? :-)

    39. Creator David Jones on April 18, 2012

      hey guys, i'm outside the US and i pledged $50 without adding $10 for shipping. can i pledge any $10 and will that go towards my shipping?

    40. Creator Studio Axel Pfaender on April 17, 2012

      Hi Andy,

      exactly! that' how you do it:)
      And if you want additional units with the custom design it's just $85 for each. ($250+$85 for 2 units, $250+$85+$85 for 3 units etc.)

    41. Creator Andy Shum on April 16, 2012

      Quick Question if i want the limited ed. and a custom one do I just put 350 as my total?

    42. Creator woody on April 11, 2012

      nice one guys... SNKR FRKR just pledged for a custom box!

    43. Creator Jason Jimenez on March 31, 2012

      I really hope this project comes to fruition!!!

    44. Creator Michael Williams on March 31, 2012

      Love the idea! Can't wait to get one!
