According to this, they might have K812 up soon

"AKG K712: This is 100% viable and we'll be glad to launch it... as soon as it's back in stock. Right now there isn't enough stock to make for a meaningful Massdrop and as such we're going to have to wait until the next batch comes in (shouldn't be too long).

AKG K612: Highly viable. There's stock available and the price is consistent and close to MSRP which means that we can offer a meaningful price drop.

Alright, and now for the AKG K812. For some quick background information, the K812 is AKG's newest $1500 MSRP reference headphone, and the first headphone AKG has produced in this price range since the legendary K1000. As of now, we've got 15 units of the K812 reserved with AKG . We'll launch the buy as soon as we receive final confirmation form AKG.

Massdrop is, for a long time, going to be the only place AKG is willing to offer the K812 below their $1500 MSRP because of the privacy and niche enthusiasm of our community. Pat yourselves on the back. Through your polls, votes, and purchases you've been able to impress the top execs at AKG and now they're willing to work with you."

Not exactly kickstarter, but I just recently found a (hopefully) great site for group buys on things that seem relevant to us:

 

https://www.massdrop.com/

 

I had just joined mass drop yesterday.  They seem to have some nice deals ... audio and otherwise.

Agreed with the above, wouldn't bother with the 812.  And yeah, Massdrop is pretty cool, got some A-T W1000x's there for $399.  Another semi-stupid whim purchase, though the phones are easy enough to drive and fairly musical if not accurate.

 

They seem to sell a lot of vaporizers at Massdrop as well  >:D

Axis360 (motorized tripod head and slider for dynamic video and timelapse photography) is kinda cool.

That'd be excellent if it included some App to control it from your smart phone, and had some gadget to let you see and possibly control what's being shot.

Long lost Pono is finally coming (on Kickstarter). http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/09/ponoplayer/?ncid=rss_truncated

 

I read (in bold):

 

 

 

The hardware will offer natural-sounding digital filtering from Ayre Acoustics, ESS' most advanced digital-to-analog converter and "perfectly flat" frequency response with most any set of headphones.

 

So, it's got an EQ?

Unless I missed it reading on my phone, I see there are scant little details on actual playback capabities of the device.

"Pure, Perfect Sound, Forever"

 

oh wait, that's been done, already.

How so?  They're already over 11/16 funded.

The opening 11 minute video where everyone talks about the sound.
