This is wonderful news! If these two new consoles are as reliable as Yamaha's previous consoles, they have a sure winner here. My biggest reason for that statement is that Yamaha actually listens and takes action about what customers want. Tell me that the Vi series of consoles has software written to use all of the buttons on the surface, and how long has Vi been to market?

I am really excited to look at this come InfoComm.

I wonder how people will view this compared to the M32.

I would also speculate that a new, lower priced stage box is in the works.

Kinda blowing my mind right now that Yamaha and Midas release very similar boards within a month and the Yammie costs 3x more

As someone who is considering both the M32 and the QL5, without seeing either I am much more interested in the QL5.  The fact that it works with the CL series is a big plus along with the fact that you will be able to break the 32 channel barrier in a midsize console.  In all fairness, I am still going to look long and hard at the M32, however I would be leaning toward the QL5 even though it is 3 times or so as much.

It should be an interesting year.

That's true - with a rio16-32 you can get 48-64 channels no problem, and Dante out of the box. That's a big difference. Big touch screen is a big plus to. It does seemed priced high in some ways, but in another sense it might just be the cheapest major digital route to 64 channels possible.

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.

Keep in mind that Yamaha has been occupying two positions in the marketplace simultaneously, high and low. I expect they would harm their high brand position, by making a large value product splash...  Perhaps their value response will be more subtle. (While I repeat I do not know how to occupy two market positions at the same time effectively.)

PS: I just read that Yamaha sells a $150k drone helicopter for spraying rice paddies in Japan. I suspect they have the capability to make a low cost digital console if they want to.

^Or they still have the 01/02 series replacement up their sleeve. God knows we need more consoles in the $1k-$5k range

No freaking shit! We need a replacement for the 01V96...16x8 or 12 channels at no more than $2,500 with a touch screen like the QL/CL series would KILL.

Oh I was being mostly sarcastic. I think the A&H QU series has gotten my vote in that range. I'll definitely be looking at these QL if we have the budget for it though
