Ok, whether appropriate or not, I can still fall back on that I'm still relatively new to Massdrop. :-) I have purchased exactly one product so far, Thinksound ON2 headphones, that I kinda really like.
But this thought has been nagging at me.
Because of how things are done, and maybe that's just the nature of the beast, Massdrop is leaving money on the table. The THX AAA 789 amp, Meze 99 Classics, the Airist R-2R DAC, and I have a few other examples too.
Those 3 are my primary examples, because while I originally was going to purchase the products here, due to long wait times and basic unavailability, I have already moved on to somewhere/something else.
I now have a Burson Fun amp on the way, because I haven't been able to get the THX amp. For the Meze 99 Classics, I will still get a pair, but either brand new, or used. And I have a Soekris 1321 DAC on the way because I didn't want to wait for the Airist DAC, well, and because the controversy with Sosolar's Hibiki DAC kind of bothered me too. (I have it in my brain, that maybe the delay is due to Airist either redesigning the DAC, or, trying to make a deal with Sosolar, and just simply using his design as-is, so there are no content questions.) And the Soekris DAC is probably just simply better anyway. But I really liked the idea of using the Airist DAC with the THX amp due to the similar form factors.
Anyway, the worst thing you can do in business, is to not supply product when there is a strong demand,
Just curious if anyone else has thought along these lines ...
