Hello everyone,

The final production version of the boards have arrived from China and we're now building a new set of FS-X samples in our Amsterdam warehouse.

Here’s a picture of the production board for all the techies.

We'll be filming the demo video over the next week or so and in accordance with our timeline, we’ll do our best to release it by the end of the month.

We'll also be sending out a few units to reputable blogs (some of which tested the original FS-X) to give you an idea of how things have changed and something extra to sink your teeth into whilst you're waiting for delivery.

Here’s an updated timeline with our projections.

Your next update will be no later than the end of the month, Tuesday 31st March 2015.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      Thanks for another regular update. Excited to see the progress!

      As per the other poster, i'm fine with delays on kickstarter, after all these are all current edge products in development, and the regular updates gives reassurance.

      Awesome pics! Seeing the FS-X's guts really makes me feel like we are getting closer to shipping. It seems like you used the board's real estate efficiently and have used high-grade components. It is hard to see all of the finer details on the board (I can't enlarge the pic on the iOS KS app), but I'm very pleased with everything I can make out.

      It's great to hear that you'll be shipping some demo models to your original reviewers. It will let them compare with the early model FS-X prototype they tested, as well as newer wireless speakers from competing brands that have recently hit store shelves. I think this is a smart idea, not only to give us more information from independent sources, but to begin spreading word and excitement to the general public! (Speaking of which, I hope you have devised a plan for advertising the the public and media as you get closer to manufacturing -- we want you to sell tons of these babies!)

      Let me know if I can be of any help at this juncture! Looking forward to seeing the video when you're finished with it!

      Nice to see frequent updates. This is the way it should've been done from the start.

      Delays are tolerable for Kickstarter projects, as long as the backers are kept in the loop!
