I have a circuit playground bluefruit, which I really love using. I’m a bit sad that the sound quality of the little speaker is worse than on the CPX because of the CPB not having a real DAC. I wish that you could put some effort into improving the simulated DAC to get rid of that hissing sound in the background – or just continue improving on the CP series with a new model. I’ll gladly buy a new one. I think the concept is amazing and I hope you’ll continue to refine it. It’s much more interesting to me than the CLUE, MAGTAG and Micro:bit – I love that it is NOT centered around a screen, but sound and colors instead.
I know that you are working hard on sleep functionality in circuit playground, which of course will improve the usability of CPX and CPB – I’m looking a lot forward to that.
