Allen & Heath Qu-32

Any Guess on these newbie announced today? MSRP? I'm curious if this will take over the X32 Market..

EDIT: Just got word MSRP will be $2,500
No idea if the D-Snake with the Qu-32 can do a digital split snake like the Behringer X32 does though.

It's not going to take over the X32 market, however it's another contender in the space.  The MSRP of $2500 likely means a price drop of the X32 systems is on the way to keep pace.

This is more of a competitor to the SI expression.  The lack of digital scribble strips make this stand out as a different unit than the X32's.

This looks like a perfect upgrade for my church, originally I thought of going the SI expression 3 but couldn't get over the 30 fader count and also couldn't get over the Behringer name even if the X32 is proven in the wild.

I spy new stageboxes?

What difference does that really make? The entire expression line has 66 channels to mix capability out of the box and compatibility with all of the SI line expansion boxes and most expansion cards.
 
The fader count has never been an issue for me, and quite the opposite. With the fader glow feature and extremely logical board layout these are some of the most capable low cost and easily expanded boards on the market. And by the way, with my old eyes it's easier for me to read what I write on a piece of tape, or once the channel has been selected read my description of the channel in the touch screen, which is almost never used once the channel parameters have been set.

Would it break the bank to add a few more LED's in each channel?

That price was straight from the horses mouth, but it may be Euro and not USD since they aren't an American company.

Anyway this board is interesting but not really something I'd pickup. I think If I replaced my X32s and Digital Snake it would be the GLD series.

What would additional LEDs be used for?

I used an Si3 Expression for the fist time a couple of weeks ago and I agree entirely.  I was given a three minute tutorial and left to get on with it.  Everything was very logical.

I was initially surprised that it did not have the scribble strips like the X32 has but when you're used to writing on a strip of tape, it's not a big deal.

IMO If there are not layers board tape is quicker and easier than scribble strips. With layers I want scribble strips but I and many others have use analog boards along with the M7CL without them for years just using painters tape and got along fine. I find the scribble strips more time consuming to setup then labeling with board tape.
