Continuing the discussion from Need advice please with HEGEL:
That is something that only my bosses can answer definitely, but @dhusky is correct.
We do help other manufacturers with network module hardware, firmware and iOS/Android apps - they will need to talk to us to see if that is something potentially viable and makes sense for them and for us. I suppose this is a form of coopetition. It is inevitable that our partners will potentially decrease the sale of our own products when some of them are in the same price class and sold in the same market, but on the other hand they may have other distribution channels, market acceptance, or brand synergy, etc.
On the same day dhusky made his post, I received notification (in my timezone) that our partner’s new model passed the technical tests of Roon Ready certification using our solution with our help - it went through 10 firmware iterations to achieve this, even though it was based on our code base that was already Roon Ready for many of our own models and our partners’ previous models.
