sure, thats all well and good, but that doesnt mean they cant arrange their product line into packages instead of having breakout cables etc seperate from the cards they fit etc etc.. it's a mess from a marketing point of view.
That said though, it's not like they're struggling to sell their products...
how would you know anything about their curent financial status? that's hardly a sensible attitude in the current climate? - remind me not to hire you anytime soon, lol
it's quite simple they just need top arrange the packages in price order - with each package showing the card, cables and breakoutboxes which can go together
it's as simple as that really.
Don't forget Dr W, there are rather a lot of professionals on this forum who work closely with many different manufacturers, so the inside track on sales is fairly likely be easy to ascertain.
If you look at their website, I would have said they were fairly logically arranged by interface type (FW / PCI / PCIe / ExpressCard and so on, and each interface then has its options listed...
Not sure where you're going with this one chap...?
going? eh? we're just talking arent we? does there have to be a 'winner' in a conversation?
well lets see what happens with a collapsing economy going on. I cant beleive RME turnover that much anyway.
so perhaps i'm saying they need to think about encapsulating a broader client base? Name me ONE company that doesnt want to do that?
rme are not Bentley or Ferrari where, yes, selling a small quantity can work thru hard times. As i said, i never met anyone with an rme product. and i bet a web-poll across various music forums of user cards ranked by manufacturer would have them down in the bottom ranking for ownership.
Now you take Hoontech, ok, smaler company initialy, cheaper product line of course (but good & reliable); their early 'Korean designed' website did an 'RME', with everything split into components, it was a nightmare of marketting crapola. and no-one bought
then they redesigned their site with products clearly arranged into 'this goes with this' easy to assess packages.
sales rose quickly & massively and with a short time they were a number-1 seller of a multi i/o pci audio device.
worth a thought.

You might think that... but I couldn't possibly comment.
