same audio circutry as the MS20m it seems, but in the original full sized case including keyboard.

google shows a $1,400 pre-order option at musiciansfriend.com ... but the link leads to no results. page possibly taken down.

some of the colours are 'limited edition'

Nicely done but the price is somewhat out there (more than double of the mini).

oh my!

i LOVE that olive color. i wish i hadnt seen this...lol.

$1400 is steep though, especially considering what alternatives are available now. now, im not saying that price is too high for a full sized re-issue, just that it feels like, soundwise (and it IS a music instrument), you can get 97% there and save $1000+ bucks....(and some space if youre in a small studio).

::edit::

but damn that olive one is sexy

That military grade color does match with the aggressive tone.

it looks like it was dragged out of a forgotten underground nuclear missile facility...which just happens to be an aesthetic i very much like.

thats a shame. as much as i like it, i personally couldn't justify that amount when a k2 is under 400 bucks.

Nice! Good thing I don't want one of these in particular. I will probably pop for the small arp 2600 if they
make it. Would have bought the big one if they had been smarter about it.

I love me some MS-20 but the 2600 is gonna eat up most of my synth budget this year.

At this price might as well get the Vintage MK1 which to my ears sounds the best of them all.
I obviously never heard this one, but I doubt it will sound better than the original MK1.

Definitely overpriced if they have that crappy keybed that's on the Odyssey FS.
