User guide

Posted by Frankenspiel Ltd. (Creator)

Hello everyone,

We have closed down the logistics and software updates. We are preparing reward groups with appropriate accessories.

User guide

We have created a new, visual user guide focused on getting started. We hope this is easier to digest.

Please note: this guide will be included in printed form in the retail box.

Your next update will be no later than a week from now, Wednesday 18th November.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      Sorry @Mark you assume wrong, it is actually full blatant dishonesty.

      @Tom I backed the Zano also, but at least they had the decency to confess what is going wrong, rather than spin yarns for a couple of years.

      @creator - I admire your audacity, you blithely ignore the chorus of requests from your backers for pictures of production units, or a real shipping date. I assume its audacity and not plain dishonesty.

      What does this mean? " We have closed down the logistics and software updates. We are preparing reward groups with appropriate accessories." Does it mean that you are not going to update us on delivery in future? I expect that I am not alone in saying that I would much rather get an update on logistics than a few pages from a manual I can read when I get the speakers.

      I assume you read these updates - it is amazing how thick-skinned you must be to ignore everything we ask, week after week after week ...

      at least they are worried about damaging our hearing with speakers we don't have.

      "We have closed down the logistics and software updates."
      Fun choice of words... "closed down". Not "finished" but "closed down".
      Sooo... you just stopped doing it, that's what you're saying right?
      Also. PICTURES of production!

      I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day every Wednesday. Time sort of resets itself. Maybe Philip Vigil is right, perhaps stop the email updates. If the FS-X shows up at my doorstep, I will be happy. If not, I will forget it in time and my life goes on.

      Thanks for the instructions. This visual guide will come in handy since we will not be receiving the printed instructions. It is very unfortunate that this Kickstarter was the first project i have ever backed. This campaign has left a bad taste in my mouth and I will never fund another crowdfunding project and will be extremely wary of investing in startups.
      Each update has turned into a joke. As well as the comments.
      I think it's time I unsubscribed from the email updates. I really don't need a weekly reminder of a bad decision I made with my money.
      The worst part is I still have hope that makes me obsessed with checking on this project. I wish the creator would just shut down the the page and not keep stringing us all along. Out of respect!

      Common stop publishing this absolutely useless updates every week. We just want to know the shipping date.

      Why on earth do you believe you'll get what you already paid for (back around April 2014!)

      Since then they've sent us NINETY-TWO updates.

      I can't recall ever seeing more than a couple of FX's at once in a single image in that entire time.

      @Creator - Post a picture of units in production!! - it's 2015, I believe most phones nowadays have a camera functionality nowadays..

    12. bazpoint on

      Ok, let's go for a single simple question.... what country are the speakers in right now?

    13. Nick Clayton on

      Wow! I do believe I'll get my speakers. And Santa will deliver them. I'm sure the elves are packing the boxes now, but Frankenspiel can't show them or it would spoil the surprise for all the good little children.

      Agree with Chris. If the FS-X turns out to deliver greatly, be sure I'll take advantage of the discount and get a second one. I know a few of my friends who will also be happy to get a one/pair of these. Keep the push, Frankenspiel. We backers are looking forward for a great product, and we'll make delivery to pay off.

      Giving user guide of a product that no one received.

      Well done guys. Better and better.

      Now I know of to sync a product that I don't have.

      See you next week for another useless update

    16. Chris Means

      Nice update. Looking forward to having a great little speaker...if we like it, we'll take advantage of the discount and get a second one.

    17. John H. Halpern, M.D.

      Lots of photos - great!

      Clear set up instructions - terrific!

      Sticking to giving regular, weekly updates: thank you!!!

      No photos showing production or a warehouse of speakers? - HOLY COW how many times do Backers have to ask? Failure to do that just begs the doubters to go further ballistic...especially when there still isn't a clear timeline for shipping. Revealing what isn't known yet isn't a weakness but a strength that will rally backers to be supportive. Not explaining or updating in real time creates horrible waves of doubt and anger especially because it is so easy to avoid. Couldn't the Creator at least acknowledge as much? Please always proactively communicate you are aware of what is being asked by Backers and either answer, state when you'll have an answer, or that you have no answer as of yet (& ideally as to why you don't).

      LoL these updates are pure comedy!!! 8oD

    19. Peter J on

      So we know at least two plastic boxes with ports and LEDs on the back exist... Any pictures of the other speakers yet?
