AudioNervosa is raffling a new Slim Duet
« on: January 09, 2008, 04:16:09 PM »
It's AudioNervosa's 1 year anniversary on January 18th.  So, I thought it'd be a good idea to raffle off a new Slim Devices Duet as seen here: http://www.slimdevices.com/pi_duet.html  This will be a production unit once it is released (which is soon).

It's $20 to join, please indicate your AudioNervosa screen name with your entry.  If you're not yet an AudioNervosa member, register here.
Send your entry to donations@audionervosa.com.
Checks must be in my hand by the time of drawing.  Email me for the address and such. 
All entries must be submitted by February 29, 2008. (extended to coincide with product release)
Be sure to send an email to 'donations@audionervosa.com' so your name gets in the hat.

Drawing will be held in February at the next local hifi gathering.  I want witnesses!  I will put everyone's name on a piece of paper, put them into a hat, stir and have my wife (or someone uninterested) draw the name.  I will attempt to video the event and post the winning moment.  (BTW, to keep it clean, I will not be in the drawing)

Who knows, maybe you could walk away with a new Duet for only $20....  Someone will.

Thanks for your support and continued interest.

-Carl

Just updated the original post to clarify that this will be a production unit, not a beta/pre-release version.  Also, I realized I should note we've had our little forum for a year now!
Thanks again to everyone that's participating.

That's right, Rich... you'll have to wait...  :drool:

Besides, I only have a pre-release remote without all the bugs worked out of it.  I'm betting the full Duet system will be available by the time of the drawing.  [-o<

Count me in as well. I've used the SB Controller and it's great, even in pre-production form, so the finished product should be outstanding.

Not to put a damper on your fun but are you sure this is legal? Some states and communities consider raffles a form of gambling. Best to check up on this before you get too involved. The only reason I'm mentioning it is that seemingly innocent internet raffles have been quashed before and in some cases, the refund process has gotten a bit sticky. If it works out - I'll certainly throw in my $20!

Paranoia has its good side - or does it?

I'd be surprised if the legal system has nothing better to do than come down on this minor community-awareness booster but I'll deal with it if it happens.  I'm just hoping I get enough people to cover the cost of the unit at this point.... since I'm buying it myself.  If you're at all concerned, please don't enter...

Nice avatar, I get it!  "Pioneer Rocks"...  :rofl:

Perhaps the Avatar is "Get stoned with Pioneer." That seemed to be their mantra in the '70's, Dude.

Most of the stuff I have is from the 70's, so there's no telling how it may have actually been used or the environment that it came.  :rofl:

In either case, I was trying to go with Carlman's interpretation.
