$999 Calyx M with DXD + DSD, 64GB + SD + µSD storage - Page 100

post #1486 of 5496

^^ Magnetic linkage has real advantages. It is one less gap to get mucked up with dust and crud. I assume that they will offer replacements (or even include one) although I don't see it likely that anyone will actually lose it who is not purposely taking it off. 

 

All will be revealed at some point.

After watching the video, I keep my doubts about the slider system.

 

1) It is obviously the prototype unit. So I mean, the volume slider is not flush proud (sorry for wrong word decision, my bad) like in the picture they told us that going in production. This might cause issues because in the so called production unit, the slider is placed quite outside of the device itself.

 

2) Yes one less thing to cover with dust but one more thing to lose. I seriously hope they include 2 extra sliders in the package.

 

3) I am not worried about the precise stepping, I have a feeling like volume control quite precise, it is just, our fingers shouldn't shake :happy_face1:

 

So, I am not relieved and definitely doesn't feel comfortable about the slider. I keep my hopes for the production unit changes but I have a feeling like they will keep the "flush" slider just like in the photo. Which is shame.

Maybe so but really simple +/- buttons would have been more than sufficient and I never had any issues with dust and crud when those are designed correctly. This is where the "KISS" principle applies. Ok now we've got a fancy magnetic button that will move the volume up and down swell. :cool:

I agree with that principle then. I also favor simple, working designs. No need to be fancy or something.

Being honest in these situations is a refreshing change and it'll increase trust and loyalty to their products ;)

They could be honest and you not agree. All I care about is them doing the best they can. Every HiEnd maker like to think their kit is best. There's a huge gap between best and not up to par.

Keep It Short and Simple - usually used for writing composition. But could be applied to any design principle.

Nah, that is not the common meaning of KISS which is referred to here.

I just watched the video on youtube and it's silly. Traditional buttons would be so much better - this is a useless gimmick.

I think Mython was right. There are some guys in Calyx designing team who have a weird fetish for volume slider-analog feeling :D
