I wonder if they'll encapsulate the circuits in resin like they used to? Will it affect the sound if they don't? :)
That caused so much aggravation, getting repairs done on my Odyssey.

No, even on the recent round of MS-20 re-issues their resin-embedded filters have emerged blinking into the light as discrete components ;)

Given that the Odyssey and MS20 KIT full size versions were around £1200 I cannot see this being less than £1999 and possibly a lot more given the Model D and Oberheim TVS reissues were around £3500!

One can hope......

I suspect your last figure is closer to the mark.

Unless they wake up to the Behringer threat.

It will be just below our 'I'm not going to bother at that price' point...

and just above our 'I can buy this without the horrendous feelings of guilt' threshold.

It looks like Ty Unwin leaked the price of the 2600 on Sonic Talk, looks to be £3,200!
If this is the final price then Korg better hope the big B don't announce the predicted price of their clone, yes for a lot of buyers price won't matter but for a lot more it will, it very much will.

Argh. I bet it'll be lovely, but I'm in the latter category. Hence my previous hope that they'll do a smaller version a la the Odyssey desktop module, and that it be priced accordingly.

Not holding out for it mind. :(

£3,200? No thanks, I don’t want one that much.

I'm also in the 'wait and see' camp. I don't regret buying my KArp Odyssey FS, but the price difference betweem it and the Behringer Odyssey would have had me making a different decision if I were buying today.

3,200 seems fair, but I'm going to bet that Behringer's 2600 will look a whole lot fairer.

Nah - 1500 would be fair. It's only a semi-modular with 3 oscillators. Two grand would be pushing it, but still not silly. Another 60% on top of that is urine extraction : I'm guessing Korg only want to do a limited run of them and are pricing them to suit a niche demand. Which make sense if Berry are planning a more sensibly priced version.
