Released March, 2009
The Pros:Plenty of power output to the speakers, can get pretty loud even without an amp. 3 sets of pre-amps for plenty of expansion in the future. Can switch off the internal amp if you want for a cleaner sound and custom setups.
The Cons:Touch-sensitive controls don't offer any physical feedback, so you need to be looking to know the command was received. Hard to find the button you want without looking. Often need to hit a button a few times to get it to react.
