Welp...it's the end of August...have any shipped, I wonder.
Great looking radio! I still have the vapors... no I'm still wearing them!
It is a nice looking rig but I don't care for the business model of paying a large sum of cash up front and then waiting until they have enough orders to build it. That is a zero interest loan for the company, for a radio that may, or may not be all that great.
I might dust off a credit card for one of those.
After a year or so .....
From what I've read and seen in demos it seems like it will be pretty great. As for the interest free loan, the lenders are paying for the privilege of being at the head of the line. They will have theirs months before I receive mine. "Waiting for K4 kit require great peace of mind..."
And if you have to ask how much it costs, you SURE can't afford it!! I know I SURE can't!!!
I don't want one. Pretty neat radio nonetheless!
Where precisely is the requirement that you have to pay in advance? Last I checked, that was an option (to buy a place at the head of the long line).
If I had any surplus fun money, I might have sent in a deposit when the K4 was announced. Since not, for me to afford a K4 would require selling off a lot of gear that I really don’t wish to unload. There’s nothing wrong with the rigs I have now, and I’m in no hurry. Maybe used K4 prices will be more in line with my priorities in 4 or 5 years.
