Has anyone at What Hi-Fi heard the new Olive One Media player?
It look amazing!
It does indeed! However, my reading is any deposit you pay is not for a ready-made product, but for an investment in the tooling and production. Not too conventional and for brave souls only?

Difficult to see how anyone would have heard one if they haven't actually built one yet.
Now that sort of logic is hard to argue with!

It was at CES in Vegas earlier this month. Olive reliability remains the question. They haven't got a great track record.
Well I have just donated towards the development costs, and will hopefully get it delivered some time in July (fingers crossed!)
Hope it sounds good, because it looks great

Has it shipped yet? Their revised date quoted December so do you have yours yet? If so, how is it? I am looking to purchase one in the summer and would love to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks
"What Hi-Fi? S & V" is a sponcer of the project since the beginning so I think we'll ear first news here...
