Louis, with no offense intended, you don't have a clue.  You are witnessing the death of iconic professional brands and the culture that nurtured them.  It is what it is.

Yeah ... and FWIW I just hope they will put some of those lovely TC reverbs and effects in my Midas Pro consoles.

Uli now has all the ducks lined up. There are significant synergies with the companies he has purchased. He now owns a bunch of iconic pro audio brands covering every aspect mixers, amplifiers, speakers and processors.

I just hope he understands the passion and respected he needs to show for these companies and their customs.

Well now. I have trusted TC, Lab, etc., just as I trusted Midas in the past. So the glory days are gone, bragging rights cease to exist, and Uli will score another win for his team. I'll shy away from anything remotely connected to MG and watch as they try to satisfy everyone who owns their product by offering overnight repair from their only repair center in the USA, at least for the first two years anyway. Then I'll shake my head as people explain away their trust in lower quality components installed by people who work for a bowl of rice.

All right then, so there's no stopping the train, but just like Disney World, the price will go up and eventually you'll decide the rides haven't really changed all that much. The Behringer ride will always be the Behringer ride. Wonder what an "Ultra Gruppen 6000" will look like.

So now I'll list a very old and sought after TC chorus pedal that is no longer in production on Ebay, and hope to make a killing before it's cloned and being sold for $49.95 to people who think the new model will be "identical" to one that's 30 years old, and built with quality components by people who care. RIP TC, you served me well.

I don't see any real hyperbole in Bob's post. 
Perhaps you could explain what parts of the post are actually hyperbolic.

I would say that Bob has valid (although somewhat dramatically stated) concerns. I, like many others, have held a long-term dislike for all things Behringer - built upon experience. That said, I purchased an X32 when they were released and an X32Compact not long after with the thought that the most I could lose was the purchase price. It's now been almost 3 years with no failures. I'm quite happy with the X32 line in sound quality, flexibility, ROI, and surprisingly reliability. I am, however, looking forward to replacing the X32 with an M32 in the near future. I don't expect much, if any, improvement sonically, but the added piece of mind of more robust moving parts (faders, encoders, and buttons) is worth the price premium to me. Having the Midas brand on the case certainly won't hurt my business, either.

The quality issue is separate from the ethics issue.

Uli has moved up from cloning to owning.

Now to find a 2290 before they hit the ceiling.

Too true.  I'm a proud non-MG sound company.
