I for one would buy the new version from you. But before I do that, I would wanna make sure it would worked as advertised and I expect the software to work right and not having to install the newer build weekly. Each time I see "it should be fixed in the next build" or "we never have that problems"
People expect a clear picture of the product you are selling, if you think someone might copy your design, I dont think there is much you can do about it. You might as well patent it and put it in a box filled with epoxy. I doubt the design is worth that much for that trouble. Stardard protocol, reference vreg design, FTDI chip and bog standard AUDIO-USB design what else is there is to it?
Considering you have a team of developers and have all the resources you need I would have though you would have sorted the reliability of the unit and have a perfect working software. Notice those who know their hardware and software are not agreeing with you here. You have been told many times about the potential problem of the master firmware and the big smoothing capacitors. This has been discussed on the other site but for some reason you refuse to see its existence, you are rushing trying to sell something that isnt fit for its purpose ar atleast isnt "ready" yet. You should be thankful that majority of member here are quite patient and forgiving, I expected worst.
I read the post at digital-car forum. I got to agree with lez and the others, you do seems to have the habit of making sure those who want to build their own are discouraged and they buy your unit instead. It is bad enough that the orginal concept of that thread was destroyed, then you carry on to make sure people are discouraged to build. Alot of people have left that DAB thread, no one want to share anything anymore or they give out wrong information, do you ever wonder why?
You have to understand why people in the forum are not too happy. Im sorry craig, thats just the way it is.
