    Have you had your hands on one yet Chris?

    If so, how do you find the build quality?

    I'm waiting for them to hit the stores here, then I want to check them out.

    The build quality is a deal breaker for me...I hope Presonus are not going to cheapen it like they have done recently with other pieces in their range

    I'm not sure they're shipping yet.

    It looks like they have an interesting new console / control surface coming down the pike soon too.

    Yes, and apparently there is some new exciting S1 add on coming out end of this month or early November.

    - State Space.
