Re: Model 416 Easel Breakout-Box [preliminary interest check]

Thanks for the ideas and renders - it's much appreciated ! However, there's a few things to consider when designing a stand [for the Expander]. - It needs to be "flat-pack-able"; because it must be shipped with the Expander itself without making its packaging (much) bigger. Couriers use the dimensio...

Re: Model 416 Easel Breakout-Box [preliminary interest check]

Well, no and yes. Boats would be coming from SamModular -- a slightly modified version of his passive 4U model -- but communication with him has been a bit difficult. Sometimes I get no answers to my emails, which worries me a bit... Currently I'm thinking of releasing the new Expander in July, so I...

For those whom want to be 100% sure to be kept in the loop -- in case MW goes down or something, just send me an email (guy at guyd2 dot com) and I'll put you on the [non binding] list.

Re: Model 416 Easel Breakout-Box [preliminary interest check]

Is there a chance for a DIY version? Maybe PCB only or partial kit or something? Would definitely get a DIY version. No, most likely not, I'm sorry. I don't really have the time nor the resources to offer continuous support for DIY builds, though somewhere in the back of my head I wish I could, bec...

I still find it slightly alien to hear bursts of real noise coming out of an Easel, although I'm guilty of implementing it. 8-) Love the way you're systematically exploring the Expander's functionality, Island.

I myself use an adjustable laptop stand too, and use the 208 (or Easel) as a counterweight sitting on the stand's feet (similar to your pic2). I then carefully "float" the ribbon under the Expander and make it come up in between the two boats... At one point I thought of designing a dedicated stand ...

this is amazing and i bow down to your skills. Thank you ! why a one time run only though? Mainly because I need to "bundle" build time. This is not my day-to-day job, so I can't afford to have this spread over a long period of time. Also, this is an expensive thing to build, mostly because of the ...

Yes.

Like I said before, doing video is not my greatest forte.
But I'll do my best to whip up a few more over the next week.
