The Magnolia section in BB while not even adequate and the four other high end stores left in Houston which is sad but more than half have closed shop almost 10 years ago probably do to failing economy and internet sales and of the remaining 4 not sure how much longer they will survive.

Do they really need slight incremental increases to justify 4 more models in-between.

Primary purpose for the multiple models is to provide different models to multiple distribution channels and sellers....
This tends to minimize direct price competition if they all carried the same model..

This is commonplace in the HD flat panel display category for brands such as Vizio and Samsung...

Just my $0.05... 👍😉
