I did finally get a chance to listen to this Upstage 360 speaker today. I also learned I had gotten a couple points wrong. I first learned about it approximately 4 months ago rather than 6. [My time sense has been off recently.] The company producing it is not owned by my friend's brother. The company behind it is called Soundmatters. My friend, Rick, is
acting as a consultant (at least I got that right
). Production will be in China, but not Rick's brother's company. If it becomes popular enough, there is a factory somewhere in the US that could produce it for N. American consumption.
I'm going to write up a little post about it. My wife listened to it for about 10 minutes before asking me to buy one. [Why she can't so quickly decide which house to buy in Vancouver, WA is a mystery to me.
Give me a day or so to collect my thoughts and read my notes before I post something more.
