WTF-over?


I was just thinking that these would sit between the LS9 and the CL series. The feature set makes t hem quite an upgrade over the LS9 and I didn't think they would EOL the LS9 just quite yet, like they didn't  EOL the M7 even though the CL has been out for two years now. But, I don't know why anyone would buya CL1 or CL3 with the QL5 on the market.

For reference:

LS9-16 6,999 MSRP
LS9-32 12,699
M7-48 28,599

After reading the features, I had no doubt QL wouldn't be in the bottom tier pricing.

Yep, had the same feeling after seeing Dante and Dugan in the brochure. Oh well, again just wishful thinking.

But now there should be a flood of LS9's on fleabay soon enough!  ;)

Well, that is unexpected.

And somewhat disappointing.  One hopes for aggressive discounting.

 A CL1 is 15k msrp.... Plus a 4k stagebox or so. In comparison is seems the ql1 at 8.5k is a comparative bargain....

Forgive me if i'm missing something here, but why?

I look at those prices and it seems like a great deal for a very solid product. A QL5 is an M7 replacement for over a third less, and a QL1 is all the good bits of a CL1 in a product that lists at only $1.5k more than an LS9-16! The cost of a Dante interface (if there was a 64ch one for an LS-9) and the Dugan software alone is worth that much!

So, it appears that while Yamaha is holding the line on their pricing, Behringer is leading the retreat to the bottom and taking Midas with them.

An interesting paradigm shift, indeed.
