Opinions, good or bad board, what happened to make Korg drop its support for it.

Korg, like lexicon, does a fewe things rather well. Korg makes a pretty darn fine keyboard, and while they may make an OK mixer, learning how to approach that section of the market is pretty vital. I think making a rack mountable 16 channel mixer for almost $4000 is a pretty good lesson in how NOT to approach the market :) Lexicon makes a GREAT reverb for just about every price point, but no one is going to say "Man, I have one of dem lexicon core 2's.. WOW! What a great card!"
I think Rish nailed it...the original price was just too high. At the $999 or whatever they were selling for towards the end of their "life cycle", however, they were a great deal. It is really a good little mixer.

Thanks for the quick replys, I currently have a couple of old ADATS and have watched these mixers go on the auction block going for @ $400. Which could be good for me since they have dual ADAT connectors. Just in checking the korg website, it's like they've never existed. I live in a 16bit world with all my other equipment, so I not interested in going 24. Thought this would complement my setup, but was not sure if their were lemon of some sort.

I bought a 168RC with a MOTU 2408 from Sweetwater when they were blowing the 168RC's out for $999 and I couldn't be happier. My only complaint is that it only has 2 XLR inputs but I just solved that by purchasing the optional Korg 880AD to add an additional 8 analog inputs, 2 of them being XLR. The 880AD is discontinued as well but I got mine from synthony.com for $429 (List is $999) and they still had one left after I got mine...
