The H8000 has some problems, lack of a solid VST support, firewire afaik is dead and was getting (in general) a bit long in the tooth, also programming the unit was cumbersome. Apparently those issues are fixed...
Speculation about the price is a whopping 7.000 USD, though. Expected for this ''Rolls Royce'' type piece of gear.
yes true but those things might not be important for certain people or scenarios.
Because it is rare and not many h8000fw that are imported to EU or even have it for purchase it will be easier to sell in EU for a good price.
I got a good deal on my new. But if we look at thoman in german who have the biggest sortiment they sell the h8000fw for 63 000 sek right now I bought mine from sweden for 42 000 sek (with some short term deal) I hope I can sell mine for around 35 sek4
7000, it might be worth they price if is the same sonic quality of h8000fw. All good people that made eventide great are no longer in the company that is only what make me sceptical. if they keep the original converters it would be the best.
