      Agree. Typical big company ripping off a small company. Will never buy from Jaycar again.

        By that token, Freetronics is ripping off consumers by putting a price-premium for throwing a bunch of off-the-shelf parts into a cardboard box.

          You really are high and dry.

            @bargainparker: Just trying to be objective instead of siding with whoever seems more "sympathetic".

            No reason to think Freetronics > Jaycar, but not Consumers > Freetronics.

              @HighAndDry: Everyone wants to make some money. It is up to the consumers to decide whether something is worth it or not. But as for Freetronics, you are one and lots of others who don't agree with you.
              After all nothing stops you from throwing a bunch of off the shelf parts into a cardboard box and put a price-premium, right?

                Exactly right - same as how nothing stops Jaycar from throwing a bunch of off the shelf parts into a cardboard box and put a price-premium too.

        Unfortunately, Jaycar is not the only dodgy company out there. VW is one of the recent ones. Most people will just ignore it, even those who seemed to be outraged by it. A colleague of mine said he'd never buy a VW car again, when VW scandal happened. Fast forward 2 years, he's driving one. When asked why, he just shrugged it off.
        People are outraged by fuel price rise, yet it's always the same old story. Just loops over and over.

          The VW "diesel-gate" was a bunch of nothing. Basically about a dozen car companies were found to be doing the same thing, but because VW was the first to blow up in the news, their name was most attached to it. Here, have a read on wikipedia:

          The VW scandal more generally raised awareness over the high levels of pollution being emitted by diesel vehicles built by a wide range of carmakers, including Volvo, Renault, Mercedes, Jeep, Hyundai, Citroen, BMW, Mazda, Fiat, Ford and Peugeot.[33][34] Independent tests carried out by ADAC proved that, under normal driving conditions, diesel vehicles including the Volvo S60, Renault's Espace Energy and the Jeep Renegade, exceeded legal European emission limits for nitrogen oxide (NOx) by more than 10 times.

          Not to mention that since the regulations breached only related to new cars, about 90% of the cars already on the road already perform far worse than the car models breaching the regulations, and are already killing far more people than are going to be affected by Diesel-gate cars.

          But I guess at least you're consistent in latching onto emotionally-motivated social (faux-)outrage causes.

            @HighAndDry: As most people are. One problem among others is that this is WWW world wide world. There is so much information bombarded at us constantly that in all this noise you tend to get lost. To have all the info, you need to dig deep and spend sometimes a lot of time trawling through to find all the relevant information. And if we are honest, not many people nowadays have much time for that. Unless it is your job, like a newspaper, TV, you will be busy with your life.

            It is like merry-go-round, never ending.

            But I must question wisdom of people. For example those who came up with idea of polluting, don't they think, it won't be just some third world country being affected by pollution, but them, their family, friends, neighbors, etc. And this doesn't just include those who did it, but those who went on with it, knowing fully it wasn't right. After all even a cleaner working there might have known about it.

            On the other hand, I wonder do they not think other companies will also do something detrimental to their customers and those customers will also be those who came up with the idea of making cars not up to standard, just so they could earn more. They could be buying a juice for their child which has something in it that causes illness, but the company making that juice is of course hiding that, just because they got fruit cheaper from somewhere else and wanted to make more money.

            What goes around, comes around.

              @bargainparker: Eh, these things make logical sense from certain perspectives and on certain time-frames. To use your examples:

              it won't be just some third world country being affected by pollution, but them, their family, friends, neighbors, etc.

              Look up "tragedy of the commons", but the general gist is that the cost is spread amongst everyone, but the benefits go solely to the polluter. Using hypothetical numbers: Polluter +100, Society -100. Even if the "Polluter" is part of "Society", they may only incur -10 of that -100 total cost to Society. So they're still +90 overall. Not saying it's good, just saying how it works.

              I wonder do they not think other companies will also do something detrimental to their customers and those customers will also be those who came up with the idea of making cars not up to standard, just so they could earn more.

              Honestly, diesel-gate was arguably good for consumers. If you purchased a diesel-gate car,

              1. You got more performance from your car,
              2. Your car was cheaper to produce (and so cheaper to buy), and
              3. It also propped up resale value.

              Even after it was discovered, the consumer is entitled to compensation so only VW is ultimately out of pocket and the consumer is (supposed to be) in no worse position than they were originally. Except now they've had the use of a cheaper/more powerful car.

                That was just an example, not really thinking if it was a good example, and it was easier than thinking of another one :)

                  @bargainparker: If people manage to get there? Doubtful. We as a species basically have our psychology rooted in short-term self-interest*. You'd have to wipe out about 100,000 years of evolution to have any hope of seeing any real improvement.

                  *this being: what allows me to pop out the most number of babies and help them live to child-bearing age to repeat the cycle. In human terms, this is at most a horizon of 12-18 years.

                  •  

                    @HighAndDry: People will get there eventually, but at what cost. The only thing is I don't see them establishing colonies there in near future. It would be am enormous expense to even try to establish a colony there as you have to make it to support your life there.

                    Only problem is that most of those babies can't expect to become a CEO of a big company like their parents were, so more likely then not will lead just normal life and be more affected by it, just like the rest of general population. I guess never thought of how it will affect their descendants. Because you can think short-term, but at the same time if it will have a long lasting, compounding effect that would eventually lead to being equally bad for everyone including their great-great grandchildren. What then? those living in those times will complain why their great-great something weren't making sure they left the world in same and/or better state than what they received it in, even though those descendants if happened to live now, would be just the same as those they were complaining about, or otherwise told they'd be just like their ancestors thinking only about short-term self-interest. Human nature.

                    This might become a long discussion which still won't even make a dent in making people think differently and I have to go make babies and help them to live to child-bearing age.

                      Fight the biological imperative! Or not - this was a good chat. The world can do with more people like you, even if I'll also disagree with them too.

    Output power 2x5watt….lol

  •  

    The 5 watts does seem limiting. Appreciate the all in one cd-record-Bluetooth. Im diggin the retro aesthetics. Not sure of the materials though - could be plastic made to look like stainless steel and wood?

    •  

      5 watts sounds (haha) like nothing but I think numbers are some weird exponential when it comes to sound. It works something like this (don't quote me):

      50 watts delivers only twice the sound energy of 5 watts and in terms of what a human determines as loudness it is only a 10% increase.
