Bluetooth Kits and Display+ - On Sale Soon!
We're thrilled to announce pricing and a planned on-sale date for our new BA30 series Bluetooth retrofit kits and CM5908 Display+.

But first, the numbers:

Date: Thursday, August 31, 2023
This is the date that BA30 Bluetooth kits and Display+ will go on sale. Product pages where kits can be purchased will appear in our Products section.
The only piece of the kits we don't have in-house yet are the production run of BA30 circuit boards themselves. These are being manufactured now and we should have them 1-2 weeks before our on-sale date. We've been through many iterations of successful, on-time builds with our contract manufacturer, but until the boards are in-house and tested, there is always some risk of a manufacturing error or delay.
What About Amp+?
Amp+ is still in the engineering refinement phase. Supply chain shortages have delayed prototype builds and mechanical fitment is still being tweaked. Our goal is to launch in 2023. Regardless, we are committed to bringing Amp+ to market, and a BA31 kit purchased prior to Amp+ release will be hardware-compatible with it. You will, however, need to install a future firmware update to your BA31 once Amp+ is released to work with it.
As for Amp+ pricing, it's too early for a firm number, but we expect the kit to be in the $600-$900 range.
Here's a few things we've been up to lately to get ready. Enjoy!
