That's an interesting analysis. I think even at its current price point, the C Class is very very competitive in terms of capability and capacity. But of course I wish they lowered the price, because I want to buy one :)

Oh absolutely.  In my opinion dLive C Class is one of the best bang-to-buck options out there if you use it to its full potential.  Barring any major shake-ups in the market I'm planning to invest in a C Class rig later in the year myself, and it's hard to beat the features and flexibility for the price.  At the same time, it's hard to put a C Class rig together for less than 10 or 12K assuming you want a surface.  With SQ raising the bar a bit on the entry-level(ish) options I'm just curious to see where GLD will go.  A&H claims it's not going anywhere, but time will tell if we see a slight revamp on it which would better position GLD between SQ and dLive.

There's a lot of things I don't really like about GLD. I'd tolerate using it but I wouldn't spend my own money on one. The thing about the C class is you sort of want to get the c3500 because that's really a 2-screen workflow in my opinion.

Just got an SQ6, and then when checking FX it doesn't have multiband compressor. Hopefully it will be available in future update (maybe as an dyn8?)

 I found the 2nd screen on the C3500 to be a novelty, most of the mixing work happens on the left, the right screen is useful for configuration and then it is a glorified meter bridge.

 If they built it like the SD12 where each screen had a full channel strip it would be much more useful, but that's pretty unrealistic to expect it to work like a console that cost twice the price.

Sweetwater already has it listed -

I'm surprised they're listing it for that much since the "Street Price" is $4499.

They've got GLD80's for the same price of $4999.  I was thinking that the SQ7 would be something like $3999 since it's suggested retail is $4499.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but there's an SQ-7 on my dining room table right now, so if anyone has any burning curiosities, I will attempt to answer them.
