More info on the 'Soundcraft mixing consoles' Facebook. It looks to me like they took the Si Compact, improved it, and slashed the price by 60%, and released it as a "new" console, along with a few new option cards and cheap stage boxes. Seems like this is going to clearly destroy all resale value of Si Compacts down to the at least <$1800 range. My Apple products hold resale price better than that... disappointing.

Very disappointing - I like the new cards for recording, but my Compact Stage Box with MADI and a few of my SI-compacts just became redundant.

My biggest reason for purchasing the Si Compact, when I likely could have accomplished my business goals with a lesser desk, was to provide a platform for learning on higher end digital desks. I figured that after 1-2 years I'd asses were I am in terms of business needs, skills, and etc and decide I either keep or resell the desk and get something else based on what I've learned. Surprise - what I really learned is never to depend on resale when buying a product. It's still a good desk, but Soundcraft obviously is willing to ankle bite their own customers!

PS - Presonus must be lonely at NAMM.
