Happy Wednesday and happy almost-Halloween! This is Akarsh bringing you another newsletter packed with updates about our Dio journey.
The few weeks since our last newsletter have been extremely eventful for our little team:
- We started our first ever Dio Node 3-Pack Giveaway hosted by YouTuber Milledge Austin (and you can still participate before Oct 31!)
- We unveiled an image from our first ever product photoshoot
- Our YouTuber count jumped up from 2 to 6
- We launched a new firmware update to make our product even more phenomenal
Read on to get all the details on this and more. And, of course, don't hesitate to write us back directly on this email if you have questions, concerns, or just want to say hi =)
Dio Node 3-Pack Giveaway
After doing his first YouTube review on Dio Node, Milledge reached out to us at Dio with an idea for a giveaway. Apparently, he loved the product so much that he wanted to purchase an additional 3-pack to be his first ever giveaway on his channel. Of course, with that level of enthusiasm, we had to volunteer the 3-pack for free and decided to co-host the giveaway!
So how do you participate? Just watch Milledge's newest video here where he explains all the details. The giveaway is open until October 31. Best of luck, Dio fans!
Our First Product Photoshoot
So we've been sitting on this for a while now, actually, but we were just waiting for the right moment to unveil it. That time has finally come! Earlier this month, we unveiled the first image from our first ever Dio Node product photoshoot. Over the rest of the year, we're going to continue unveiling photos from this photoshoot on our Instagram account in commemoration of the first year of Dio Node!
So why is this so special to us? Well last year another Dio fan & photography student, Ben Akers, reached out to us offering to do a photoshoot for Dio Node because he loved the product concept. Since then, the speakers have, of course, already become commercially available, but the photos were so good that we wanted to reveal them in a special occasion. With our one year mark coming up at the end of the year, we wanted to finally unveil these images to celebrate Dio Node!
New YouTube Reviews about Dio Node
Ever since the first two YouTubers posted videos reviewing Dio Node last month, our popularity among the YouTuber community has skyrocketed. We've now had four more channels post reviews about Dio Node in addition to previous YouTuber Milledge Austin's new sound test video for Dio Node:
- Milledge's new sound test video (includes a 3-pack Giveaway)
- Michael Vance's video (includes tests with Nest Mini and HomePod Mini)
- BigC Vlogs video (includes detailed setup process)
- GoTechGeek video (includes comprehensive unboxing, setup, and usage)
- Battle Team video (includes unboxing, setup, and playback testing)
Firmware Update 1.0.3
We also released a new firmware update on September 19 which greatly improves the stability of our firmware update process. That's right, it's a firmware update to improve firmware updates! If you have a Node at home and haven't updated it since September 19, please go ahead and do so to make sure future updates install more smoothly. And, of course, if you ever run into issues, please contact our support and we'll make sure to get to you right away.
That's it for this time, folks! Happy jamming!
