General & FAQs
We hope you are enjoying the lead up to Christmas.
We had initially wanted to surprise you with the demo video in this update but unfortunately we’ve not received the new circuit boards from China yet.
We’re excited as much as you are to demonstrate the true power of the updated FS-X with all it’s new and familiar features so we’ll do our best to get this out as soon as possible.
We’re however delighted to be able to show you a sneak peek picture of the new subwoofer for the first time which as we promised in Update #48 will be included in the FS-X demo video to demonstrate the FS-Xs compatibility.
Check out how the size compares to the FS-X, it’s still monstrously tiny like it’s little brother!
Also, based on your comments we’ve made a decision on the comparison models we’ll be using in the demo video.
JBL Charge 2 (RRP $149.95)
Bose Soundlink Mini (RRP £169.95)
Frankenspiel FS-X (RRP £70 - KS £45)
Although some of you have suggested up to 5 comparison models, we’ve chosen 2 speakers to compare with the FS-X as we didn’t want to overcomplicate the video. We are confident this will be enough to demonstrate the differences in quality.
We would however very much like to hear what music you’d like us to use. If you have any preferences please comment below and we’ll do our best to fit them in.
Similar to Update #48 we’d like to finish this update with a few of your recent concerns and questions.
“Do you have anymore news on the stand for the FS-X?”
Our new stand design is still going ahead and every pledge which includes at least one FS-X will receive one stand free of charge. The budget-friendly stand will then be added to our webshop.
Again, we know this doesn’t excuse us for delays, but we hope you can accept this as a gift from the whole team to apologise for the inconvenience caused.
The stand will work with suction-pads and it will be available in black (plastic) only.
“Do we have a shipping date?”
Like we said in Update #48 we are sorry that we won’t be able to deliver before Christmas. Although we will be in production before Christmas and we will do everything in our power to get your units to you ASAP, it’s not certain we can ship the units before the New Year. For this reason, we prefer to say that shipment will begin January 2015.
We’ll do our best to give you a secure date in our next update.
“We’d like more updates.”
Our next update will be no later than 2 weeks from now, Monday 29th December.
As always, thank you for your continued support. And have a very merry Christmas!
All the best,
The Frankenspiel Team
