As the Summer comes to a close, the leaves begin to turn. The evening chill starts closing in on you and already it smells like Fall here in the Midwest.
It’s only fitting to bask in the remaining warmth of the departing Summer by re-uniting with nature during the Labor day weekend.
And that’s what I did. The family went to a secluded little spot in Michigan and spent quality time with friends near a campfire.
While nights are getting chilly, the air was hot enough to swim during the day, so the weekend turned out great.
A relaxing break before the final push to build and ship the HiFi-M8…
A couple of notes for people who asked questions on Head-Fi.
We are shipping units steadily now and are working through the backlog created in the recent months, as we discovered and fixed several bugs, namely the 1/4″ reversal, new firmware, etc.
We are in fact building everything here in the US. That is actually slower than in Asia. We could have built units much faster at a Chinese plant. But the quality wouldn’t be the same. Our ears won’t be available to test each unit and make sure it’s perfect as it leaves the factory. So… we’ve chosen the slower, but higher-quality route.
Several dealers received stock recently. They are TTVJ, Moon Audio, Jaben, HiFi Heaven and a couple of others. They have been waiting patiently in line, just like the pre-order folks. We are not shipping large quantities to dealers. Just about a unit or two here and there, even though some have ordered a lot more. We will satisfy the pre-order cue before we ship the remainder to the dealers.
