A bit of a late reply but i just wanted to comment on it because on other forums i was like the ******-bag you were referring to.
The facts are a bit dated as i've heard many user demos in the mean time which give a better indication of the sound then the initial ones.
But taking the initial Dave Smith etc. demo's in mind, they sounded absolutely terrible and unconvincing especially to the more dance orientated potential customers.
Fact of the matter is we're talking about a very expensive (for most people) type of kit here. Due to the analog nature i'll bet you many dance orientated 808 owners are looking to replace their 808 (or even MD)with the Tempest.
But again up to date no real proof of these particular capacities. You might not like their products and slickyness, but take NI as an example. Every feature of their products is marketed to death (to much for me personally) but they manage to create a buzz around their products.
Still all i see in terms of corporate communication for DS is technical stuff, updates this, updates that. Excellent for owner, useless for prospect owners.
Personally i'm still not convinced as well about the deep analog pounding BD's to name something. And that is coming from a DS fanboy who has owned every bit of DS gear there is.
