Hello everyone,

We are very busy beefing up our supply chain to be ready for the final batch, getting more hands on deck to help us speed things along and handle the bulk shipment.

We are happy with our results from the first batch and we are pushing towards shipment for the rest of your rewards as soon as possible. We hope that during this busy period you will allow us 3 weeks to come back to you.

Thanks for your continued support, especially in these past few weeks, we are all really motivated to get this complete this project successfully completed and progress with future Frankenspiel products.

CHANGING YOUR ADDRESS (REMINDER)

BackerKit is still open for those of you who want to change your address.

There was an error in our last update when it was first posted, it has since been updated.

If you are marked as ‘ANSWERED’, you are in the final batch and have one more chance to change your address. You only need to contact us if you are marked as 'NOT ANSWERED'.

To view and edit your address on BackerKit please login to your profile here: https://frankenspielfs-x.backerkit.com/

We apologise for the confusion and thanks again for notifying us so quickly.

Please note: If you are in a situation where you cannot guarantee a neighbour can accept (or sign for) your rewards please include a contact number in case of an unsuccessful delivery. Our postal partners will then be able to contact you to arrange a redelivery.

Also, if you are one of the lucky ones in the first batch, we would love to hear how you are getting on with your new FS-Xs so please let us know in the comments!

Your next progress update will be no later than 3 weeks from now, Wednesday 6th April.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      I haven't received mail regarding delivery or the product either.

      Yep, I also would like this:
      Counter-offer to David: Be transparent like you have agreed to as part of Kickstarter's rules, and give an update *every* week. You can start right now by saying what you supposedly are busy doing. (And don't you dare say "preparing shipment"!)

      Ditto @marcus sandman

      No, I don't want to wait 3 weeks for an update. How long does it take to type this "update"? Just keep us updated every 2 weeks, it's the least you can do for leaving us hanging for so long.

      I was backer #51 and still no shipping info. :-(

      Meanwhile I get a little bit impatient...

      Hello team Fragenspiel. My backerkit says my reward is shipped, however there is no tracking number to be found and its been 20 days since they shipped?...

      +1 Mike11111. The key word is "vaguely"...I just wanted to try to write something kind. Of course this was another of FS' famous say nothing do nothing updates. 3-weeks is a lot of time for them to hit the bong... As if.

      Translation of update:

      > We are very busy beefing up our supply chain to be ready for the final batch, getting more hands on deck to help us speed things along and handle the bulk shipment.

      We haven't started production on the next batch of units and are having to change our supply chain again.

      > BackerKit is still open for those of you who want to change your address.

      We are far enough away from thinking about fulfillment of the next batch that we don't feel the need to post a deadline to update your address by.

      > We hope that during this busy period you will allow us 3 weeks to come back to you.

      We won't need to post the address update deadline for at least another three weeks, this means we are likely months away from beginning to 'prepare shipment' again.

      > Also, if you are one of the lucky ones in the first batch, we would love to hear how you are getting on with your new FS-Xs so please let us know in the comments!

      Please, post something, anything positive in the comments. (Not that we will read or respond to them.)

      Disappointed that I'm STILL waiting. Even if the speaker turns out to be "OK", it probably won't overcome my lack of confidence in the creator...time to look for some other BT speaker...my patience has run out.

      So @creator is now so busy he can't send an update for 3 weeks? I don't know how long it takes you to write these empty and meaningless updates maybe 3 minutes? but the fact you sent them at least indicated you still existed. We have all seen the photos of the first 100 units, let's see some photos of the rest.

      57 weeks! Not 13 and a half. 13 and a half months.

    14. Gustav Öst on

      Beefing up... a lie obviously.
      What the hell is going on. Let's calculate efficiency.
      For 100 units it took from January 19th until February 17th to get to peoples door.
      Let's be fair and say only one person working 8h days 5 days a week and that actual shipping took 3 days. Thats 19 working days. Thats 152 working hours.
      Which mean packing each speaker takes ~91 minutes.
      THATS AFTER HAVING PREPARED SINCE OCTOBER 7TH.
      If the same rate is kept for the rest of the approximately 1500 speakers that will be 2280 working hours, about 13 and a half weeks.
      That is of course after getting the speakers to the warehouse. Which for a hundred units took 3 months when expecting it to take two weeks. This is of course unrealistically slow. There are lies / hiding of truth in here!

      Only positive is that no delivery date has been set. When they are set the only sure thing is that delivery will be way, WAY after that date.
      Which I pointed out in Update #89 Oct 21 2015 - "Delivery estimates / deadline to change your address". Where the delusion was that delivery was to take place mid November. So even time estimates as short as less than a month are just bizarrely off.
      This freakshow of time management... it... it's just stunning.

      I'm sad to say that my interpretation of the word promising is vastly different to yours John. This update is possibly the funniest thing I've seen all year. Asking to now have 3 weeks between updates? Class. Saying they need more time to bulk up their supply chain? Priceless. Asking the few backers who have received FS-Xs to post reviews? Ridiculous.

      All this serves to show they're still lying, and they even have the nerve to try and get some more reviews, I assume for marketing purposes to try and con more people into ordering their non-existent products. They had 100 speakers, all of which have been shipped. They have no money, no staff, and apparently are too lazy to post an update every 14 days, as if that's even vaguely challenging.

      Buying time is the phrase that comes to mind, although it's possibly the person posting the updates is a compulsive liar. Either way, this update is absolutely hysterical and I'm glad to be part of this 2 year long comedy show.

      Vaguely promising...and happy about the positive energy. But still wouldn't a clear timeline be much appreciated...it sure would! Will there be a separate delay for white or champaign speaker cases?
