lol - my first thought was, "Why would they? There is already so much competition in that area." But then.... why wouldn't they? If they want to expand their name recognition into as many areas as possible, then providing a cost-effective, great sounding alternative to the 1073LB would be where it's at. It could be a shrewd move to help people get into their GTQ2s later: "Trade your GTLB (my product name suggestion!) in on a GTQ2 and get $500 off!" or whatever

I can certainly afford $1k a pop easier than $2k...that's really the reason I'm into the 500 format...

Considering how much steam the 500 series has picked up in recent years, it would be unwise not to.

As Scott mentioned "why wouldn't they? If they want to expand their name recognition into as many areas as possible, then providing a cost-effective, great sounding alternative to the 1073LB would be where it's at."

I'd start down the Lunchbox path just for one of them.

I used to be more of a 501 man myself; but then when I started expanding, I realized that 550s had the more relaxed fit I needed.

Hmm... maybe if I packed a lighter lunchbox for awhile, I could fit into those 501s again...

Oh wait, you were asking a different Geoff? Sorry.

Best,

Geoff
