Since the release of the Lincoln2 there has been uproar in many areas of how different this one is to the original. I’ve read comments, mocking videos and the rudest statements about the radio. Even those who never invested in the radio are all red in colour and angry about it. That shows the passion I suppose? It is on the back of this that I decided to contact one of the Groupe President Electronics companies and waited for a response which indeed has arrived via email so can tell you what I think is some of the interesting parts of the message. These parts are highlighted.
President are aware that some people have reported to them the troubles with the s-meter and the AGC when there is a strong signal, front end over load. The percentage is not high, but there has been some and now there is underway work to cure this. President have watched videos, read blogs, looked at forums and have seen what people are saying. Normally as people will know President never comment until there is something concrete to say. So the fact there is an answer must indeed mean something is happening behind closed doors.
I understand also that even if you have cut the wire and thus invalidated the warranty that President will honour whatever the work is needed to make it better under warranty from the first production But please understand me well, I do not know at all what is planned with this, not told just copied the part of the mail that says it.
When more news is available, whether I am informed like this time I cannot say. The person who emailed me told me there should be some news towards the end of March 2014. What that news will be I cannot tell you, have no ideas at all but when I get more information I will add it here.
So the key points seem to be:
AGC & S-Meter issues being addressed
How and what form this is not announced or told so we need wait and see within the next four weeks
FIRST PRODUCTION Pieces will be covered if the wire is cut.
Is there anything else being done? I HAVE NO IDEA AT ALL.
Videos are watched, forums read and feedback although I guess tough is being addressed
So we now must head back to standby mode and wait. IF more news comes then I will add it here. It maybe is not what all the people want to hear but it is something. Better than just sitting and moaning.
* Comments of a rude nature will not be approved and IP addresses forwarded onwards
* Dates of course can change, depends on President and when they are ready to announce things.
* I DO NOT KNOW what they are planning, only have the bread at the moment, not the butter and filling.
Information correct as of the weekend. Written and stacked for release Monday 3.3.14 via remote.
