So once again the theme of my post is to point out and lament that Woot has become just another daily deal site that offers uninspired products, unimpressive pricing along with increasingly stale and predictable stories in stark contrast to the extremely creative and quite funny descriptions of very fun, usually interesting products that made the site what it was. I dont say this with anything but a heavy heart because as an early follower of Woot it is not even close to its former self....
Ah, the danger of too much information not sorted, vetted, analyzed in our new “instant data” world. Let’s break down the facts:
-Anyone can “post” any product on any website at any price at any time. Yet, that does NOT mean that the product is a) available, b) as advertised, c) in new condition, d) will carry a manufacturer’s warranty
- The cases cited here are from companies we have had legal interaction for false advertising, improper use of Pinnacle copyrights, bait and switch tactics.
- This is why the companies never actually delivered any Pinnacle product, or had access to Pinnacle product
Further to your comment, Pinnacle products typically take 2-3 years to engineer and perfect. They often endure in the market for as long as 10 years or longer. Unlike cars, TVs and other product categories, high end speaker designs have a long-term ‘shelf life’. Please feel free to verify this fact with your own research.
You don't want to buy a speaker from a company that changes its product line every year or two. That is an indicator that their R&D efforts are too short to create an enduring product.
The SuperSonic is created in 2 finishes: Matte black (less expensive), and a multi-layer, hand applied piano lacquer finish – which is the version offered here and now sold out.
