Got a call yesterday to let me know that the S16 I had ordered wouldn't be shipping because Musicians Friend is dropping Behringer. No details were offered except to say that they were blowing out all in stock Behringer units.

GC didn't pay their bills and Behringer put them on credit hold, meaning all new orders were pre-paid or COD. When that didn't work, they put GC on "business hold" which means in effect that Music Group revoked GC's dealer agreement. For non-payment.Note that any product purchased from MF/GC after the revocation is "gray market" and will not likely be covered by warranty. I'd suggest prospective purchasers contact Music Group's CARE facility in Las Vegas for a "horse's mouth" answer.
this is scary stuff. The two biggest musical equipment retailers drop one of the biggest selling lines they have? This isn't the end of the story, can't be.
You've got it backwards because of the GC/MF spin, spin, spin. They didn't drop Behringer, Behringer cut them off because GC was seriously in arrears, with no certainty of forthcoming payment.
yes, I understand that. My point is the whole meltdown. The irony of the largest retailers dropping the largest brand, the one they sell the most of. Is this just one of the first meltdowns, others to come in other areas of the economy?
