I want to see what inside.. not the outside. Its only the prototype cabinets they toll us about one year ago, without anything inside. The amplifier, electronic and speaker still need to be documented, and olso a trusted person or magazine to review them. Sorry to say, but after 100 updates there is nothing new under the sun, only old news..
Dammit, for once I order a white one....
There goes the advantage of being 2nd backer....
I wouldn't mind to change my selection to a black one :-)
Great to finally have some pictures. But no context (location, functionality), and definitely only the first batch. Would advise people to stay on a hat-free diet still.
Am i dreaming?
By looking at the plug near the window, that is not a UK socket. Its either 3 bolt Chinese socket or 2 bolt EU socket. 50/50 gamble.

Well I will be joining you. Srirasha?
The specs remain impressive despite the plethora of options on the market. I hope there is a space for a new model building on the strength of this one. When the dust settles. It will be a shame if production halts after this Kickstarter due to the negative aspects of the wait.
Really, I'm disappointed there isn't a "Deal With It" Speaker photo with sunglasses.
Any updates around the non black ones?
Wow, awesome! And I love the subtext, too: no words, just 9 pics and a video, which clearly say "take that, you doubters" (a group which I have to say I'm at least a half-member of).
Nicely done, and thank you for finally posting pictures - after 100 updates they were great to see.
Can't wait to play 'Hotel California' with these speaker pairings.
Remember, on September 23rd they mentioned "150 pre-production units". It's possible to count 96 in the above photos, assuming all visible cases have a speaker in too. We can't be sure these are anything new; They may have had these for months and simply held off on photos until they really couldn't any longer. The video was however recorded today at 16:29 UTC, so they at least didn't film it months ago.
They look amazing, and I bet they'll sound incredible!! Thank you!! :-D
Yeah! I am hoping I get mine in a month.... Need it before mid-month.
In case he's actually reading.... A simple update that stated "we / I don't have anyone in China to take photos of the products" would have gone a long way.
It appears as though as soon as there speakers to photograph.. he did.
This doesn't excuse the rest of the multitude of issues.. but on this one.. simply stating there weren't any "boots on the ground to do it" would have answered about 70 or 80 updates worth of people begging for photos.
And they are actually of the speakers!!!!
With Frankenspiel photos TRULY are more valuable than words!! You listened and helped all of us!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I will be buggered sideways with a rusty drainpipe! It's 2 years late but at least they exist.
Holy Fucking Shit! You posted photos! Wish I had ordered black now...
At long last! Thanks for the photos.
Had to come back and hit the like button. Can't believe there is an update where I want to hit the like button!
Mind you at the rate they are being produced... who knows when they will be shipped to all backers (if they do... there have been other Kickstarters where that hasn't happened)... but this does restore a bit of faith that they are actually trying. And that's what Kickstarter is.
Never had any doubt. Wished a lot of the foul mouthed backers on here had more faith.
Looking forward to getting mine!
OMFG can you believe it. Actual pictures. And my colour scheme. Wonder if I'll get my 2 ordered now. Who knows.
I'm ready to receive it and the first thing i'll do will be come here and read all the comments as i do every update is out :) For me it is already a recurring appiointment...i will miss it. Anyway i'm also sure that if the quality of the speakers will be as shitty as it was the support from Frank.....we'll have a bunch of funny comments also ;) keep it up Frank...don't send them pls jajajajajaja
Today OP did a good thing.
Oh. My. God.
Looking good !
ALRIGHT! thats more like it. updates when they're needed and some solid evidence!! even a VIDEO!!! i apologise for my most recent criticism. its nice to be wrong.
Wow... I'm gutted. I ordered the special edition Champagne Gold ones....
On the plus side it's nice to see that there are some FS-X out there in the wild. Well done creator. You're getting there and it seems like the end is in in sight.
Finally our prays have been heard. Thank you for the pictures, Frankenspiel.
Well I never had doubts hahahahaha
Holy fucking shit!
100 updates.. no speakers... update 101... speakers! For the first time in a year I'm actually hopeful (though I already purchased other speakers and will probably gift the two I backed)
Well!! F*ck me!!!
