I think road ranger is implying that the current batch of baby x are as effective right now as a cardboard box with a pad on top.

at the end of the day it's horses for courses and when the new batch of products hit the shops, I think many guys will have a foot in both camps, I think both companies will and do offer one box suits all options but it's all going to come down to price,

Do you guys think the dl806 will be scrapped and the more is more philosophy will take over, or will mackie offer something to lure people away from what seems a ridiculously low priced x air 12?

Kev
Behringer will always have a cheaper alternative, that's who they are.
No real reason for Mackie to discontinue the DL806 any time soon, drop the price maybe if a rival actually materializes....

Wonder how many DL806s they built and haven't sold yet?

Sales price is usually a good indicator along with "Special Sale" events.

More Sales, more new units sitting in the warehouse waiting, waiting waiting.  ;) I know Captain Obvious here.  :)

Lol, at least they're likely to be in a warehouse, not still in the ether! (Captain Obvious returns ;))

......undoubtedly they will sell thousands if and when they arrive. They are a massive corporation.
Maybe something new will be all the rage by the time they hit the market.
I can't understand why it's taken them so long given their resources?

Would that be "ether or?"  Have you seen the Hotels.com commercials yet, with Captain Obvious? Very funny!

At 650 or 729 depending on the socket, the euro price on thomann is still a bit high I think, for the 806"

I wonder how many 28 pin versions of the Dls are being sold right now?

At last!, a new post. I was starting to wonder if everyone had left the forum. Feeling abandoned.   :(  ;)

I'm glad you here, uh, there? Don't feel so lonely now!  :laugh: Forum was/is verrrrrrry sloooooooow. But thanks for replying. Me to. Awake sort of. Toronto got some snow last night into this morning. Started to use the electric snow blower (2 years old) and it died. Had to shovel in the AM and once more after snow stopped, 3 hours later. I think it's supposed to be good exercise though.  :eek:

Got in, sat down relapsed for a while and medicated on life.  ;) I'd better sleep really well tonight.  :)

That's easy ZERO they do make a 30 pin version that Thomann in Spain sells for 511 euros as of today.

I think everyone knew what I was suggesting, I have not actually counted the pins on my old lead, if it's thirty it's thirty, will wait for the Dl 806 lightening to hit 500 euros and then buy a couple I think.

How many pins does the Lightning have by the way?
