I think this will be my way out of the SBT!
Let us read the firsts reviews, and then i will make up my mind!
But so far, so good!
"Designed by European Americans and hand-built in the USA," it comes with a free white hood for all you good ol' boys to wear whilst pretending that other countries don't exist!
I've never read anything quite so bizarre! Heck, I might just flag my own post as offensive for repeating it, that's an extraordinary thing to put in a product statement!
And if it's so great, why are they having to crowd-fund it? Right now, this is vapourware...
No signature worth mentioning...
Well, ignore the hand-built in the USA bit, why on earth would anyone feel the need to specify that a device was not just designed by Americans but "European" Americans? What does "European" even mean in that context? It can only mean one thing, "White Americans", there's no other meaning behind that combination of words in that context.
I read it like the LHC. "Designed by European Americans" does not come across well
I think the founders are two german guys who moved to the US.. I postulate that this is what they wanted to imply. They could have (and should have) chosen their words better....

I got as far as that statement and thought the exact same thing.

does "afro americans" come accross any better?

If you mean "African American" then I believe that's an accepted term when race or colour is relevant. My point is colour ISN'T relevant in this case, simply referring to "American engineering" would have been quite sufficient.
Well and about the new product, any apinions?
What i didn't get is how do you connect it to another amp, and use it only as a player.
If you got a amp with no wireless, do I need a apple airPort?
My point is colour ISN'T relevant in this case.
I'm sure there are plenty of Black & Asian people who were born in the vast expanse of the Europen union and class themselves as 'European'.
Ethnicity is definitely implied in the marketing spiel. Again, it should have stopped at American.
