I'm probably going to keep this as a "full" kit, although the price will likely go up to $129 or so. That is, if my kickstarter funding is successful. I am also offering it fully assembled in clear plastic.
I hope this works out, because I think there is a generation of kids out there who are getting into vinyl who need a way up. It's our job to embrace them, as they have the same passion we do. They are going to look to us for knowledge and support. And as much as they may want to dis' us in other areas - it won't be here - not after they hear how much better your sound systems are, anyway.
I've already started on the design of the next kickstarter project. A new UFO! The problem has always been the machined case. I could never get the price down to where it needs to be. However, if I do the same thing and get a custom plastic mold made, I could sell them for close to $100. So I have a 3D designer coming up with sketches. If project #1 works, then we'll make a 3D printed prototype. Of course, the final product may use clear plastic, because we know how cool it is to see our own DIY work when finished.
