No, it doesnt.
To laymen, software development is something akin to wizardry. Neither time, nor effort are involved. If software is missing features they want, or has bugs, it is solely because someone has been too lazy to wave their magic wand.

Testing the water presumably. Although you could argue they did this the Mono range.

The full size will be a Limited Edition. Whatever that entails.

People have been complaining about the price. I think it's bang on considering current market values. I do admit one needs to build it themselves, but in return you get a new old synth and a £200 saving.

What £200 saving? The price listed is more than twice as much as the current MS20 ($1400 versus, what $599?)

@WR: I'm comparing like for like (ie not mini)

$1400 is £850 today so I'm a bit off actually. It's a saving of ~£250 to £350 on current eBay prices (based on my saved eBay search over the last 12months).

Really? I guess that means old MS-20 prices have dropped since the Mini came out? I was getting to be expecting £1200-£1400 for one

and this sort of pricing comes up still

Well I paid £1400 for mine 18mths ago and I thought I paid above market value because it's mint.

The one you linked to is also in incredibly good condition, but it's more expensive than ones I've seen recently.

Prove what, that a commonly used phrase is true? Do a search, lots of ppl on various sites have 'wondered' on this subject.

This thread equals the stupidity of the product being discussed...

as far as I'm concerned the closest thing to a like-for-like comparison we can make here is this MS20diy VS MS20mini. In that respect, the MSRP is definitely a head scratcher.

1/4" patch points, the extra 14% of casing and the additional filter type just don't account for the price difference. And the 'limited edition' addition to the value is pretty arbitrary {at the point of sale} IMO - though of course it probably will have a real effect on resale value down the road - but you must also consider that the resale value will be based on the original sale value, which is the point at which it's arbitrary... but I digress.

here's to hoping these projected figures are off by a significant margin.
