The Centrance HiFi M8 thread - Page 94

post #1396 of 5057

I will go along with whatever Centrance decides. For Gods' sake, it's a rubber bracelet - nothing more. I am much more concerned about the product itself, not a throw away accessory. If the bracelet is that big of a deal, (a) do not purchase the Hifi-M8, or (b) do a search for them on the 'net. You can buy 50 of them, custom made with your name or logo for $25, including shipping.

It's not a big deal for me either, like I said in my previous post.... It's only rubber bands. But Michael did say he would offer both, and if he does, I would still prefer inset. I didn't ask him to offer both he offered. So since he's the one who offered both, my preference is still inset. If he offered neither, I'm fine with that too because its only rubber bands. You can get them a dime a dozen.

No, but several people have commented on how dinky the volume knob seems.

My 2 cents -

Rubber band controversy? Seriously?  I voted for inset, thought it might look nicer.  Raised is stronger?  Raised it is!  Heck, cut a couple donuts out of a bicycle tube.  I usually just go down to the hardware store and get a couple of O-rings of appropriate cross section and diameter - works quite well.  Raised letter Centrance rubber bands - Cool!

I don't think it's as much as a controversy as it's being made out to be. Like I've said several times now...it's only rubber bands. Even if he decided to offer neither, I would be fine. You can get them a dime a dozen in many places. Michael offered to supply both, and I accepted; nothing more, nothing less. I have a preference, but like I've said now many times. It's not a big deal, just a preference. And since both was offered, I accepted. If he would have came and said...raised letter is all we are offering, then there would have been no need for me to say anything. If he came back and said....I've changed my mind, I'm not offering both anymore, then I'm find with that as well. This is now turning into beating a dead horse, and we should move on.

For what it's worth...

 

I hope Michael and the guys in Chicago are not loosing sleep over the rubber bands.  I just want the best sounding DAC/Amp on the face of the planet.  I have no issue with the folks at Centrance loosing sleep over the most reliable, well built, feature laden, power packed, flexible, coolest thing ever.  I have faith that Michael will come up with the right product.

 

I am not concerned about the rubber bands so much; they are just rubber.  Hey, in the immortal words of Chico Escuela (aka Garrett Morris from SNL), "Rubber break, but I can't talk about that".

So we decided to test the tearing and learned that the inset bands do in fact tear easily. What happened, is we discovered a bug, on a hunch from several customers. We then felt like we shouldn't release a buggy product out there.

Having said that (are you ready?) -- We CAN offer both bands. I just need to know -- Does the community REALLY want this choice?



I have a hunch the number of options might be getting overwhelming at this point smily_headphones1.gif

Let me know...

Maybe the inset was too deep?

I do prefer inset letters more but will go with anything that CEntrance will do smily_headphones1.gif I'm sure it'll be amazing anyway smily_headphones1.gif

I am not using rubber band, I will be using Velcro to stick them together. It's much more nicer that way, plus easier to take in and out.

Probably 3M Dual lock for me.

While I'm not a big fan of the knob CEntrance is intending to use on the HiFi-M8, I'd much rather it than the one you linked to. That one reminds me of too many DIY projects I've seen. Personally, I would have liked to see something similar to what they used on the DACmini but I think I understand why they've chosen to go the route they did.

I'm also skipping on the CEntrance bands and going with my SUPER ULTRA CUSTOM Blue Dragon Flying Tarantula bands:

 

 

EDIT: I just received the Revision 2 Blue Dragon Tarantula's!:
