Publicity stunt or not, I don't mind.
It is good to see serious companies willing to loosen up from time to time,

I agree.  Stop by the Noble threads sometime and you'll see they stay loose most of the time (I have no affiliation with Noble, I just participate in one or two of their threads) :smile:

Errr, I never said there was anything wrong with sponsorship.

 

I simply remarked that this thread appeared, to me, to be very clearly a sponsored publicity stunt, rather than a casual head-fier just posting a personal joke.

 

That's OK - I'm just saying I perceived it as being obviously choreographed, and I'm surprised that it did not appear so obvious to other head-fiers.

 

Actually, it was the other way around.  A bunch of us wanted to do something for the day, and we came up with that.  We then went to A&K and got their permission to mess with their trademarks and such.  So, orchestrated?  Yes, by us mods.  Sponsored?  Lol, no.

Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

So I'm just catching up. This whole thing was an April fools day joke?!? That's just awesome! You totally had me. I thought it was the DAP for the 1%!!!

again,from my perspective what is so amazing is that people spoke of wanting to be on a waiting list for a 5000 dollar DAP

Welcome to Head-Fi!

Many folks who spotted the prank early (like me), tried to make it live longer, but it was tough! biggrin.gif

Was anyone serious about that or was it just another 4/1 prank?

post #326 of 395

Today's prank will be tomorrow's reality! There probably will be an AK480 and it will have those specs, but maybe not at that price!

post #327 of 395

Not only wanting but also asking about how to be listed for the lottery draw ....... that's brutal now the disappointment and reality have kicked in.
