I owned one for five minutes.

In short, my two main reasons for buying it dissolved rapidly within that five minutes. Re-boxed and returned.

The all white LEDs didn't give me the one mighty advantage I'd been hoping for - of being able to quickly pick out controls on stage. I do like the light-up faders, but if I can't see which is which at a glance, then I may as well continue using my KArp and a clip-on lamp. :(

The built-in effects are mono. A bit of mono delay is acceptable, but for the chorus and reverb I often use I would have to use an external effect, so no real advantage there. :cry:

The keyboard felt really nice - better than the KArp FS. :thumbup: It sounded good too. It sounds like a Odyssey - what more could you want? :thumbup:

Of course I would have instantly been having the external PSU mounted inside the case and an IEC connector added. At least it has a proper on/off power switch, unlike that ridiculous momentary switch on the KArp.

If they ever put coloured LEDs on, like the photos of the proposed 2600, or a third party comes up with the ability to do it (one guy tried it, then ran into problems) then I may be back, but for now I'll stick with the KArp.

Just thought I'd share...

At least the Karp turns itself off if not used, whereas the Beri will still create more and more CO2 unless manually disconnected from the mains. Just think of the future of your little woodland friends.

I didn't know the Odyssey was out already. Cool!
