Precisely. Does this maybe presage a complete departure from pro-audio?

From the article:
"Robert Mulatz, senior VP of Bosch Communications Systems, admits that the brands did not really fit comfortably within the Bosch portfolio: "Midas and Klark Teknik have always epitomised the highest possible performance and reliability in the mixing console and signal processing markets. Within the professional audio business of Bosch this niche market has not been defined as a core business area due to its size and specific requirements. We believe that in the Music Group we have found both the passion and the financial ability needed to grow Midas and Klark Teknik. Among all potential buyers that have been screened, we have selected the Music Group as the best fit.""

So if mixing consoles and signal processing are not a good fit within the Bosch portfolio, then what's next on the cutting block?  And one has to wonder, what the screening process was?   Shocked



 
Bosch is making a lot of changes.  I just found out that they are moving the accounting dept. from Minnesota to New York in March of 2010.  This means job loses for some Bosch Accounting employee's

I'm sure Uli will kill the product line just like he did Behringer years ago. It's sad but it makes good business since for him.

Maybe they won't change anything.  LOL Yeah right!

So this means that the Behr***** XL8 is coming soon?  It will be just like the Midas XL8 only it will have crappy components and be in a silver chassis.
