  1. Jared stuck limo, please give actual information. Really, try harder. As I read this, I see 1. ha ha ha. You guys often claim "shipped" and then nobody gets anything. Or a couple of people out of dozens/hundreds do. 2. "we shipped out some" "in-stock inventory". More, ha ha ha. Now everyone else waiting can wait for after this Chinese New Years and the next and then next... As usual, "we are shipping" turns into "we claim to have shipped something and maybe we did and maybe we didn't but for those of you who receive nothing in the next weeks, you should feel hopeful for as long as you possibly can". 3. ha ha ha ha ha.... you want a handful of people from one of many failed campaigns (the Pulse) to wait for a "more formal announcement". WTH. Same old BS. .....What about the campaigns shipping ZERO over and over even when you say you are ready to do final build, or ready to ship, or etc. Namely, Source, Wave, and ViDac.
  2. LHL Wave UPDATE #188: It’s like LHL just makes updates in order to add salt to the wounds of their investors – since there’s obviously no hope, much less any plan, about HOW anything will ever be manufactured much less delivered or refunded. This 2020 update is no more than another drawing- after all these years! LHL's lack of an actual doable plan has eroded from the early days of fancy marketing talk (now understood as lies) to rare and minimal project updates (on this or that dead campaign). Only now they don't even pretend to have a plan (well last year they did claim a few Vi DACs and Source's would ship, but no one believed it because we know better by now. And guess what, nothing shipped). So why update? I've asked myself that question for at least a year.
  3. All those who contributed to the spreadsheet of losses - please check your email and Spam for email from: [email protected] The deadline is Jan. 3rd to confirm that you will "join the complaint". To join you need to read the email and attachments and send back one document. Happy New Year!
  4. I really think Indiegogo has the values and actions of serious criminals - they only care about easy money. Lucky for them that they have created a website platform that just sits there and generates just that - easy money ("crowd funding"). Gogo does nothing but provide this web platform. Anyone can post any (marketing) campaign in the hopes of generating cash. People post ideas with the best marketing they can muster and then see how much money rolls in. Gogo doesn't care if a campaign makes nothing, $5, or 50 million because their job is done and they get a cut for doing nothing but providing the website platform. Sure, some campaigns actually deliver on promises but the odds are not good for those contributing money. This is because some campaigns are scams from the start and many more "want to provide what they promise" but aren't equipped to do so. A campaign can fail at any point. Starting from the beginning, it's easy to find campaigns that set goals far too low and even when they exceed the goal it's literally impossible to pay what it takes to design, test, manufacture, and ship the product. Let's not forget the money is not accounted for by anyone. How and when a campaign spends the money that they collected is up to them. Gogo appears to enjoy a legal loophole that allows this insanity. That loophole needs to become a noose. Any of us can create a marketing campaign of fancy photos and exciting text promising the moon for a "low - low price" and post it on Indiegogo. If the marketing generates even a dollar, Gogo takes their cut and sits back doing nothing. The person(s) posting the campaign collect and then do whatever they wan with the money. -AFAICT
  5. To help new people to this forum to find recent important updates: Posts #784, 785, 790 have the latest official updates on what is happening and how you can still join the complaint to the California Attorney General.
  6. Markus, Please let us know here when the emails go out to those on the spreadsheet. I just want to make sure I don't miss it. Thanks,
  7. LHL has thousands of my dollars. I ate up their BS marketing lies. The only positive outcome was learning an expensive lesson - DON'T TRUST ANY CAMPAIGN on INDIEGOGO (and always remember that all marketing and advertising is just an image being sold, not necessarily related to truth). Sure, some campaigns turn out legit, but Indiegogo itself is a legal version of a pyramid scheme. Indiegogo could care less who markets what on their site because they get paid each time any person contributes to any campaign. Larry and every single person ever associated with LHL marketing, sales, or customer relations seem to lack honesty or integrity.
  8. YES! - Current legal action is discussed and acted upon in this very thread .... and also here:
  9. My favorite part is "the top is designed for perfect air flow". That's a major accomplishment, I guess. The really amazing part is that while it will have perfect airflow it will also have "enough finger room to reach in for tube swaps, while also avoiding mass exposure to dust". WOW! - massive airflow, holes, AND avoiding a mass of dust. How does Larry do it? No more drawings, build this amazing box!
  10. If only it were a bonafide box! - Alas, it's a drawing of a concept box from a man who has squandered it's funding over years of promises and box designs (and even a few completed units along the way). So this box drawing still needs to be manufactured, fitted with the internal components board and loaded with firmware and tested AS A PROTOTYPE. And then ... all over again. And then shipped....
  11. Vi DAC has an update. It's the third official Indiegogo update in over a year. All three of the last 3 updates have been about producing the case. In case you missed this update: After all these years LHL has (again) reached the concept of (yet another) prototype - of the case. No information or update is provided about the internal components, or CCX modules, or software, or the timeline, or compatibility and availability of the other related products, or whether manufacturing can be financed. Cry or laugh? Move on. Again.
  12. FWIW, I was able to get an update by emailing "sales" instead of Paul. I received a polite apology and great news - that my SR4 was nearly complete and would ship early this week. Well, I never received a shipping notice so I inquired with Sales on Wednesday afternoon and have not heard back. I don't appreciate either (missed shipping dates, no communication, or, incorrect communication). So, I'm still waiting for accurate communication and shipment.
  13. January. That's sounds nearly criminal more than happy. How many updates did you get during a 6 month wait?
  14. To see updates about the pending legal action, here is the more active thread:
  15. From Larry, May 2016: Dear Vi DAC backers, It’s time to update the current production progress. Due to the nature and requirements of your top grade Vi DAC, including none-parallel wall chassis that need very good CNC machining time, hand soldering naked resistors and match, and down to every detail Audio Precision testing for individual units. We are taking care of each Vi DAC as it is being built to pass our high QC standards as we all know this investment is a meaningful one to you. The first few months of production speed didn’t pick up too fast. But in past few weeks with some internal work flow enhancement, now the production speed is running at (1) For Vi DAC Infinity (solid state), we could produce 20~25 units per month. (2) For Vi Tube DAC, currently is 10 ~ 15 units and expect to be 20 ~ 25 units too. Previously, the major hold back for Tube version is the Chassis CNC. Our CNC factory built a new tool to help stabilize the chassis during the machining process. So the chassis manufacturer accelerate production. Slowly but surely we will win this race! And for the Signature Edition Vi Tube DAC backers, this week we will send out the Vi Tube Signature Edition survey and let you start the customization of your own unit. Each unit will be listened and customized by our engineers and me. I would really love to communicate with you through the same format like Geek Pulse SE edition via Google Doc. Cheers, Larry
