update on A500 shipping date
Email from Mads Buchardt:
Dear patient customer of the A500.
Thank you so much for your support and especially for your trust towards Buchardt Audio.
The damn Coronavirus has affected us all and I really hope that you are all staying safe out there! I'm happy to report that Buchardt Audio are - despite the pandemic - doing tremendously well, - well over our expectations.
We have worked so hard to minimize the delays in the production of the A500, but, sadly, I must inform, that the A500 delivery will be delayed a little bit. They are on the way to us, and will actually arrive within June as promised, but for last preparations we need a week or two to get things ready which means that we will have them all shipped out between the 10th-20th July. Because of this delay, we would like to offer a free insurance for the electronics. This means, that if anything happens with the electronics within the next 5 years, we have your back. It's just an extended warranty that's tied to your name.
Another thing this pandemic has affected, is the development of our soon to come Buchardt app where you control your room correction, the advanced EQ and later full surround setup if you go that route.
It will launch with only the room corrections which is the most important thing of course. But the ability to tune and toy around with the EQ is postponed for a bit, sadly. We needed to really prioritize what was most important as the virus just slowed everything down. We are talking about implementing a simple tone control temporarily, but I need to acquire some more information about this.
I'm so sorry that I can't bring all good news. But, have a little more patience and I will however ensure that you will be so impressed with what the A500 brings when they arrive! We are so proud of what we have accomplished with them and I genuinely believe that this will be an eye opener for many people that are skeptical of active speakers. I can already share, that the two reviewers that have them say they are among the best, if not the best speakers they have had for review, that is a good start!
Hope you all the best. Take care!
