September Update 2020 – 15% Sale for 1 week use ank15 coupon in shop
Due to explosive growth of ANK over the last few years we have implemented several important new systems to help us take ANK to the next level and manage the orders, builds, and the follow-up necessary to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
ONLINE DOCS Firstly, we have implemented a complete Online Manuals and Documentation System over the last year to allow customers to review manuals, parts lists, and additional documentation before they purchase — so that they can know exactly what to expect when they begin a build. We have also started updating all of the Parts Lists and Master Parts sheets (the first page of each Parts List spreadsheet) so that customers can check all parts received; this is an ongoing project which our full-time Documentation Guru, who worked on our manuals project, has now begun. We know from the feedback we’ve received from you how important this is.
NEW ADMINISTRATION ASSOCIATE Secondly, we have recently hired an Administrative Associate who will handle general enquiries, upgrades, PCB requests, special requests, or missing parts, though we want to eliminate those for good! Melissa can be reached at email@example.com
PRODUCTION MANAGER Thirdly, we’ve had a part time Production Manager this year who is moving to full time this September whose main job is to ensure that kits are shipped in a timely manner with complete parts — and that, in those occasional situations where we’re waiting for inventory, the parts are immediately ordered from Parts ConneXion or Hifi Collective and shipped out at the same time as the kit direct to you, our customer.
PARTS PARTS PARTS And finally, we have started to receive large Audio Note (UK) parts shipments this year, allowing us to include many AN signature parts with the kits when weship them. We also now have a great stock of all our chassis, PCBs, faceplates, resistors, and capacitors — and transformers now usually take only 1-2 weeks, as we place weekly orders.
NEW WEBSITE We have been quietly building a brand new website in the background; it will launch as Phase 1 sometime this month, with 2 more phases coming right after. We are making the site easier to navigate, with an even better shop and improved communication on kit shipments, etc. Right now it’s done manually, with UPS alerts on shipping, etc.
REVIEWS We love receiving feedback from customers. For example, this came in very recently: “I totally love building these ANK modules – beautifully engineered, devastating performance, and (speaking as a technical writer with many decades of experience) the buildmanuals are a work of art. As you promised, the L3 Phono V2 stage is a revelation! I upgraded my cartridge at the same time as I finished the L3. The sonic difference is staggering. The unit has been thoroughly burned in and has behaved faultlessly.” – P. Ellis, UK
