Today we shipped off the first batch of front and rear panels to the anodizer. About a week turn around on those so we'll have them back just in time to finish the initial builds and start shipping after the planned Sept 16 release date. The reason we don't have finished product pics yet is because we've been waiting on these panels.
Here's a front panel right after machining the slot for the acrylic lens inlay and control knob. The next step is to flip the panel over and machine the pocket for the encoder and the OLED display (not shown).
First batch of panels ready to be boxed and shipped.
The new Alps encoders arrived!
