I think a dx4816 is coming first (hopefully with ME expander ports)

That image was taken down so I doubt this is (supposed to be) public knowledge.
And like all the other releases the update page wasn't updated until the firmware was actually released.

I'm thinking late March into April.

Also, that slide could be faked...

Or it was a dealer meeting and to be announced soonish?

No idea, the image looks like some meeting at NAMM.
I stole it from a user group on FB.
I didn't sign any NDA's  :P

I cannot wait for MBC, DynEQ, DeEsser plugins! :)

Nathan, why this first?  Inside knowledge?  Or just thinking that this would be the most “complete” stage box connected to a FOH SQ?

Saw it on the post where the image came from.

So it's mostly speculation and 3rd hand info. But it also makes sense imo.

I don't own an SQ, but I would certainly like one ;)

Just one man's opinion, but I think that an off-line editor is an expected feature of any new digital mixer today.  For the SQ level of mixer I would think it was a glaring omission in today's market.

Didn’t really expect what I’d really like to see, an SQ level equivalent of Qu-SB or Qu-Pac.

I too am quite surprised that there's no "SQ-Pac" yet.  I would have guessed we'd see one of those before the SQ7, but that's apparently not in line with what A&H has planned for this series.  The Qu-Pac is now 4 years old, and while not ancient by any means I'd think A&H would want to push as many users as possible up to an SQ equivalent with added features, especially if they plan on SQ eclipsing Qu.

Adding the SQ7 to manufacturing was a pretty easy change for the production line. All 3 SQ desks can be made on the same line.

A rack box is a new line to start up. Takes longer.

That’s more like it!  Looks like the SQ is getting to offer some good value.
