About this project

Thanks so much for supporting our campaign. 

Unfortunately we were not able to make it to the campaign goal. However we are very encouraged by all the support and interest we have received from you all over the duration of the campaign, and this is definitely not the end for Symphonica - we will be relaunching our effort again very soon.

Please follow us on @symphonicasound on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to be kept in the loop, and visit our website at www.symphonicasound.com/crowdfunding - we really appreciate you backing us and are counting on you to back us again in our new campaign. 

Thanks so much,

Marc

Enhanced acoustic performance. Machined with precision, hand crafted with passion, the pursuit of perfection.

Symphonica brings beauty, grace and warmth back to a world dominated by flat and unfeeling plastic iPhone and Android phone accessories. Its inspired, passionate design reminds that form can be just as valuable as function, capturing the attention and drawing the eye to the flowing, organic patterns expressed in the natural wood grain.

Charge your Smartphone with confidence

Our commitment to quality means that both our Symphonica speaker and docking stand come with premium quality Apple certified MFi (Made for iPhone/iPod/iPad) cables. Sure that costs us a lot more, but it means that you can keep your iPhone charged while in use and be confident that your valuable device is not being put at risk by shoddy bargain basement cables. And there's no reason for Samsung users to feel left out, as we also offer the equivalent Micro-USB version as well. Just let us know which you prefer when you make your pledge.

Symphonica makes a great gift! 

We've all been in the situation where we're facing the question of what do you get as a gift to a friend who pretty much already has everything? You get them something useful, something special, something unique, something that you know they probably have never even seen before. Symphonica fits the bill as a great gift for any occasion, and for $20 more we can even add an engraved personalized message.

Meet the Symphonica Team
Here's a bit of information about the small team that has worked to make Symphonica a reality.

Freddie Kwoh - Inventor of Symphonica
Freddie Kwoh - Inventor of Symphonica

Symphonica was designed by Frederick ("Freddie") Kwoh, a seasoned audio engineer and product designer who held multiple patents in the field. Drawing from his decades of experience he has created an innovative and beautiful product which not only serves a useful purpose, but pleases the eye as well. Sadly, Freddie passed away before completion of the Kickstarter, but we are continuing on to fulfill his dream of bringing this product to market.

No matter how great the product, you still need to let people know about it and get it out to them. Marc is in charge of spreading the word, as well as managing all the behind the scenes processes involved in getting your Symphonica to your front door.

 

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately, we've already experienced the greatest challenge a project like this could encounter, the untimely passing away of its inventor and designer during its original Kickstarter campaign. After taking some time to regroup and reorganize we are now ready to move forward again, and having had gone through the worst case scenario we are confident that we can get through any other challenge that could possibly arise.

Getting a product like this from the mind of the designer into the hands of backers involves a great deal of hard work, planning. and coordination between designer, manufacturer and logistics in order to deliver on schedule.

In recognition of this we have worked closely with the production personnel for over a year, refining the specifications and ironing out the technical challenges and complexities involved in transitioning from prototypes and samples to full scale production.

We also have a team member with significant professional experience in handling freight and logistics on a daily basis, and so we are well prepared to deal with the complications that can arise in moving products between the factory, warehouse, and the end user.

As a result of this we are confident that once our goal is met we will be able to deliver on schedule to all our backers.
