It will be hard to sell for a decent price, I think. 2500 USD maybe.

The value of the h8000fw is about this 1000 dollar above us value.  Mostly due to import tax and currency conversion.
H8000fw is still legendary high end studios

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.

Studios are DAW oriented, with no time to lose. With that said, making session recalls with a snap of a finger, is what is expected in a piece of gear with this price tag. I know they have a vast legacy of ''unmanaged'' units (at the level I mentioned at least) so times changed, and I hope this blends nicely in a studio environment. I think it would be really dumb if they downgraded the converters, unless they are selling this cheaper than the speculated 7.000 USD.
