Maybe next year around xmas they will offer the same upto 20% off they offered this year (and I also hope the Euro continues to tank and bring down the Swiss Franc a bit with it) - and you can score one of these for around $4500 or less!

This company's marketing really confuses me.  Not everyone needs a million inputs and though it's clear they're targeting a higher end pro market, there's so much of a market they're passing by as well.  I also don't understand pulling the old SX-R4 completely for the last two years while developing this.  Finally, this is probably going to settle into the $6k or $7k range after the intro pricing is over, so why not continue production of the SX-R4, offering it at a more attractive price point?  Maybe they'll eventually offer a more economical version of this with fewer inputs but as few products as they have and as slowly as they develop products, I doubt it.

I think sonosax made the right move coming out with this updated unit

This version now has a slightly better feature set than the Aeta 4minx and adds a number of new features the older version did not have

- 1 larger color touch screen display
- AES 42 support
- Real time SRC
- DANTE support (which is a newer must have feature in this space)
- 16 track recording - up from 10

I would also bet the changed they software architecture to a more modern approach with an ARM or similar based CPU running a Linux kernel controlling a DSP.  This makes it very easy to add new features, such as wifi control, etc

The 4minx is designed in this fashion

Older arch (I.e. Sd 7xx series, old SX-r4, etc) use a completely DSP based solution which typical limits future expand ability

Maybe next year around xmas they will offer the same upto 20% off they offered this year (and I also hope the Euro continues to tank and bring down the Swiss Franc a bit with it)

Unlikely - the Swiss Franc detached itself from the €uro and is about 30% stronger as a result.

So the tanking of the €uro won't affect the Swiss Franc at all.

I expect the price to rise rather than fall.

Though it is pretty cheap as it is for a Sonosax.

The Swiss Franc immediately went from an almost 1:1 with the US dollar to 1:1.2 with the US dollar last week after it the removed the Cap.   Now it is 1:1.08 so it is up but not by much and about a year before they added the Cap in 2011 it was seemed to always be within 10% of the US dollar and typically less

The Euro is a completely different story

Congrats CK 8)

I figure $1k for each 2 channels of preamps, plus $1k for the recorder=$3k total. But damn, its almost double that price :P All I want is 4 channells of preamps, and a nice recorder. No need for all of that extra stuff. Obviously like comparing apples to oranges, but $5,500 for an SX-R4+ or $300 for the Tascam 70D? Hmmm lol ;) Plus I dont need the preamps in the SXR4+, just a HQ line in! And for the price, I figured that it would have a KCY Input! That would make it more attractive for me ;D

But still a beautiful deck! I wish I had the $$ to buy one for myself 8)

Looks awesome. Expensive , sure but I bet it's a rock solid all in one unit. I'll keep dreaming and who know in a year or two units might pop up in the YS.  ;D
