Saw that and wondered if it was good or bad.  Hope the new owner continues to keep mackie and others afloat and doesn’t start getting rid of some dead weight.

Nothing new since they were already held by Sun Capital Partners in Florida, just another set of Sharks.
See http://cacophony.aspinock.com/index.php?topic=236.msg1194#msg1194
So time will tell.

Hopefully they survive this transition. I'd hate to see them go.

At least Mackie is sharing a booth with Ampex at 2018 NAMM (201CD). Behringer/Music group/Midas are not signed up. Wonder if Uli reached the same problem Gregg Mackie faced a while back.

I forgot that Uli made a big deal out of making 2017 NAMM his last appearance there. Here is the story for Ripley's Belief it or Not.

I've been at both the current Canoga Park (LA area) and Las Vegas facility's and they certainly don't meet the concept. Haven't heard about any others I guess he's to busy moving into Behringer City. If I want to get hands on experience I visit Guitar Center or similar stores and also  view his competition. So much for a cup of coffee. The rest is handled via the Internet and published manuals which recently seem to be non-existent for new products from Behringer and even Midas. I'm sure the competitions appreciates the missteps. It also sounds like what Loud did in the Far East a while back.
