well finally got mine, Id say its OK except it looks nothing like the pictures in the drop. WTF Massdrop , How can you do business like this????
The unit doesn't look bad, but the picture in the original Drop Looks zero percent like this product. VERY disappoint.
the sound is what you can expect from a $70 amp, drives my higher impedance 990s decently and can destroy my EL8's
anyone who wants to buy this amp from me, email me @ email@example.com
$60 shipped anywhere in the US.
It looks exactly like the one Will posted on page 60 of this Discussion. The one on the product page is a prototype.
Yet another person who did not PAY ATTENTION to the Drop or the Discussion you must have not read the initial listing to where it said the design might change based on feedback from the community; and then as it has been stated before Will posted on page 60 the final design.
People are just finding things to complain about the littlest things which if they just had common sense and read what they bought into then they wouldn't have any issues.
For products like this Massdrop should post all updates either on the main product page or somewhere centralized. It's unreasonable to require people to keep coming back over the course of a few months and read through pages of comments just to find something relevant.
The photos on the product page should have been watermarked with some kind of disclaimer saying "This isn't what you're buying" because it obviously wasn't obvious enough.
Exactly. I'm glad they at least put out some info on the updated design somewhere, but seriously, buried on page 60 on a 73-page thread? Ain't nobody got time.
When Massdrop Employees post an update on a Drop it sends an email notification as well so that would take away from having to read through pages of comments... so don't get this having to read through pages thing?
I agree with updates being posted on Description page but MD has put things in place to make sure you get updated/notified about a product; people just aren't aware I guess.
vvvv ON MAIN DESCRIPTION PAGE vvvv
The final design is nearly complete, but there’s still room for community input! From now until the end of the drop, every piece of feedback we receive via the discussion section has a real chance of influencing the production of this Objective 2, so be vocal. Let us know what you want. Endorse posts you agree with, debate the ones you don’t. When the design is finalized, we’ll email all participants with an in-depth look at the amp you helped to build."

"every piece of feedback we receive via the discussion section"
"we’ll email all participants with an in-depth look at the amp you helped to build."
And there I thought people check there emails at least once a day or hell at least TRY and keep up with a product they purchased I mean I know when I am waiting on a drop since I at least use my PC everyday I check the Drops Discussion for the Drops I'm currently in to stay up to date.
The last email about the design was August 3, which was before the drop ended. People who hadn't joined yet probably would liked to have had that same information.
It sounds like you have more time to spend following something like this for 3+ months than the people who have been disappointed with how this was handled.
Everything they put in the emails should be available on the website right now because I bet most people either don't have, or didn't read those emails for whatever reason.
There were times MD provided answers or info that was only in the comments.
I'm not disappointed with it because it's just a relatively cheap amp. For a while it seemed it wasn't really fulfilling the Objective 2 "legacy." Then towards the end it seemed MD just said "never mind we'll just build a basic O2."
