At least in the production sound segment where no one needs mic ins anymore since everyone uses the pres in the wireless transmitters.
Does seem like the 888 is priced oddly high compared to an 833, or even a Nova.

But when you look at it from another perspective, from the Scorpio looking down, then the 888 is a bargain priced Scorpio! As 16 channels is still an awful lot (33% more than a 688!).

The Dante chipset is fairly expensive. AFAIK a dante card from audinate alone can not be had under around 500$ so that puts quite a price increase on a product.

Not a fan of the Deva design myself (interface looks like a 1990ies windows CE computer) but the Nova is quite feature packed especially at the given weight and power draw.

Impressed with the range of the SD-Remote App for the Sound Devices 833. Handy to have so much range with your tablet to roam with.
