By the time it makes it to market, the 500 series fad will probably be mostly a memory.
You really think so? Hasn't it been around long enough already to no longer be considered a fad by definition?

In any case, I agree that having the converters integrated would not be the way to go. One would want their rack or lunchbox to not become obsolete, or not have technology tied to it that could make it become outdated. If it's a module, though, that's no problem...just replace it when the time comes. A ten-space rack with one of the Millennia eight-channel preamps seems to be the best solution on the market right now, although if someone could come up with a more elegant solution that wouldn't be a bad idea, although I don't know how one would get around the connectors on the front thing...
