Preparing shipment

Posted by Frankenspiel Ltd. (Creator)

Hello everyone,

We have had a few speed bumps this month, some due to communication issues and misunderstandings in China.

Our team is working very hard on shipment and we will be working as many days as possible over the festive periods. Of course we will try, but it is unlikely that we will be able to ship before Christmas.

If there are any further developments we will be sure to share this information with you immediately.

Your next update will be no later than a week from now, Wednesday 23rd December.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      It is my distinct impression that you have no team, nobody's working, and there is no shipment.

      Aaaahhhh !!!! I get it now: they are preparing shipment.... IN CHINA !!! Not over here.
      So let me guess, once the shipment arrives at your place from China..... You'll have to prepare shipment again !
      And let's not forget Chinese New Year... So we're already talking March 2016 before anything worthwhile can evolve.
      Checking out guys, see you back here sometime in March.

      @creators; thanks for the weekly deep F...

      This update is even worse than what was given to us last week. Flailing around with information (or no information) at this late stage certainly suggests campaign failure. No one is awake at the wheel but the dream lives on and maybe when the creator wakes up we will be told the truth. I doubt even that...

      I see it is not your fault:

      Update: 88

      “Where are the 100 units mentioned in your last update going to, are these still going out to professional reviewers & bloggers?”

      The 100 units have completed vigorous testing. However, we have paused all additional activity until we have regained your trust.

      Dear Creator,
      I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I can empathise with you suffering communication issues throughout the life cycle of this project 100%. It must be very frustrating for you not to know what is actually going on with your supplier. I just hope that they are not trying to rip you off and covering their inefficiency / deception with bluff, bluster and tall tales of setbacks out of their control.
      Should you need anybody to share your grievances with, pse let me know; I have a few friends that may be able to offer similar advice.
      Good Luck.

      "It is unlikely that we will be able to ship before Christmas..." I'm shocked! Amazed!
      I thought the team was making a list
      And checking it twice;
      Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
      Santa Claus is coming to town
      He sees you when you're sleeping
      He knows when you're awake
      He knows if you've been bad or good
      So be good for goodness sake!
      O! You better watch out!
      You better not cry
      Better not pout
      I'm telling you why
      Frankenspiel is coming to town
      Frankenspiel is coming to town
      And we all believe it, don't we children?

      @Tom yes I saw it, I meant when i very first tried to find a connection i did not see the what Hi Fi article.

    10. Gustav Öst on

      Speed bumps can generally only occur in things having a speed that is non-zero.
      What's the miscommunication and misunderstanding?
      Is it about that you're out of money and they won't deliver unless paid?
      I can't see how the money funding this project can have lasted for a lot more than a year longer than intended.
      Just admit that there are no speakers.

      Who won the B$ throphy this week???

    12. Lucas Gabardos on

      How can "communication issues and misunderstandings in China" impact shipment preparation in Amsterdam I wonder?

    13. Marcus Sundman on

      What exactly is "your team working very hard on"? Do NOT f*ng dare say "shipment" one more f*ng time! An underage schoolboy in china can figure out how to ship some crap on ebay within a day, so do not f*ng dare to say that you can't do that within a year and a half. NOBODY is *that* incompetent.
      So can you just please, please, please for once in your miserable life tell the truth, David? Everybody already hates and even despises you and nobody trusts anything you say, so it's not as if you have anything to lose by telling the truth. Or is the truth really so much worse?

    14. Carsten Poweronoff on

      let me guess: the miscommunication made you accidentally ship back the readily assembled, but very camera shy gear from Amsterdam to China. You took this opportunity to have a next generation bluetooth cable soldered to the back of the speakers to further improve sound, and energy efficiency?
      Come on...

    15. Marcus Sundman on

      You have been preparing shipment since October last year.
      And "we will try, but it is unlikely that we will be able to ship before Christmas" is what you said around this time last year.

      @adrian joss. I almost clicked like just because of how audacious this update is.

      Love that 'plenty of progress' mentioned in last weeks update is in fact the same amount of progress, if not less, than NASA has made in developing warp speed travel. Which will be achieved before these speakers are shipped.

    17. Joscha Haering on

      You always say that you're working on shipment but you don't tell what you're doing. Be transparent! Tell us what you are working on. Packagin. Soldering parts. Writing shitty updates for Kickstarter...
      I believe you so much that there are communication issues. You are the worst guys in communication ever!

    18. Andi Gold on

      ah, china? what about all parts in amsterdam warehouse...?
      Bullshit like every week!
