We're still on our shipping timeline, a lot is going but here's an update on several features.True wireless stereo
In all the tests we’ve done of the stereo operation, no problems with the stereo functions have emerged, in particular the syncronisation of left and right channels is working very well.
For FS-X set users we want to confirm that when you adjust the volume, whether by your Bluetooth device or by external in-line control, the volume will be changed simultaneously on both left and right speakers. So as we’ve stated previously you will only need 1 volume control for both speakers.
We’ve been working on our stereo pairing. The main elements of the stereo pairing are already clear. The first step is the stereo pairing method which will be different from what we described. We’ve thought it through and this makes sense. Your 2 FS-Xs will first pair together by pushing the buttons simultaneously. The master speaker will then pair with your Bluetooth device. The master speaker will always be right, and the slave speaker will always be left, your FS-X set will always remember this.
There is of course an unpairing button press option, so if you want to use only one of your pair for travel purposes you can unpair them.
In the final firmware we’ve incorporated a pairing memory function, so your FS-X will remember up to 4 Bluetooth devices.
Through tuning and circuit optimalisation we’re working to improve and maximise the SPL of the FS-X. We’re not releasing the final numbers yet, but it looks very promising. This is just a heads up that it is all going ahead as planned.
We will not cover the mould mark with a logo, we will fill it to the exact dimension, so it will not be visible in the production models.
FS-X and frontframe plate colours
We’re close but still not quite ready with the colours and the UV coating of the FS-X. So we’re going to have to extend the end date by which you would have to choose your colour options (which was tomorrow, june 15th).
We will set the end date after we have posted the pictures to give you plenty of time to finalise your choices. We want to reassure you that this does not jeopardise our shipping timeframe.
As for the frontframe plates here are the silver and black chrome colours.
Notice that we’ve slightly darkened the silver colour to make it look more distinguished.
When we’ve finalised the four FS-X colours we will take pictures of these with the two different colour frontframe plates, to give you a good idea of how they will look like together.
Cables and fastcharger
We’re going for flat cables, that’s for all of them, including the audio cables.
And colourwise we’ve chosen to go for white (instead of black) for both the cables and the fastcharger, because this visually blends better with most interiors.
This is the prototype fastcharger, as you can see there are interchangeable plugs for the fastcharger. You will receive the plug type corresponding to where you live. One of the nice features is that you can also use a standard power cable, which means that you’re not restricted to just using it from the wall plug.
This update covered quite a lot of ground. We hope you found it interesting.
And we'll be back soon with more information and pictures.
Have a great weekend!
