As I understood it, built to order meant that the two man factory waited until enough orders came in, before ordering the parts to assemble and package a run of ADM40's in their factory, not that speakers were built on an item by item basis, per individual order.jcbrum said:HaHa, Ashley doesn't do any 'marketing', he just tells people what he thinks.altruistic.lemon said:And that is a big problem for AVI. JCB, since you're his right hand many, how about suggesting the God swallows his pride turns to normal marketing for his new product?
I'm certainly not his 'right-hand man', - just a happy owner of AVI equipment, - like thousands and thousands of others.
You are remarkedly un-informed, or perhaps being deliberately mischieviously assumptive, lemon.altrustic.lemon said:I somehow think previous practices, albeit costing virtually nothing, aren't going to work this time, and it would be a shame to see what may be a decent product go to the wall prematurely - I'm guessing that's what happened with the 40, but perhaps you can correct me on that.
ADM40s are not constant production items, and never were. They are built to order. At the moment 40s are on hold because production capacity is diverted to the new DM5 loudspeakers, for which there is already strong demand, in addition to the other three new items in the new range. ADM9s are to continue, I'm told, but with ongoing R&D.
You, or anyone else, would be able to gain this information simply by asking Ashley, rather than fomenting mischievious innuendo.
I'm also lead to believe that this sort of 'built to order' malarky, was the basis for cirumnavigating distance selling rules.
Is this the case on both counts? - I'm simply commenting upon what I've read elsewhere...and believe to be the facts.
I could be wrong of course, and look forward to your comments.
