When the Monprice unit hits in the fall, it is going to be a big disruption to these car priced processors. A product with 16 channels with Dirac Live for 1/5 of the price. I am sure the brand elitists will stay with Synthesis because price is still equated with superiority. I am still shocked people buy the JBL subs when there are vastly superior offerings for less.
