I'd pay €500, it's gonna replace a LOT of gear.

This video does confirm that it will be $399 in the US.
No idea for elsewhere.

As I said in the other thread, he says 399 - but doesn't say what currency. He is an Akai employee but he sounded British as did the bloke talking to him.

gonna take a while. Good idea to not allow GAS to overwhelm and cloud my judgment so i'll hold on to my current toys for now. Once L8 and this monster get released, it'll be decision-making time.
