Agreed. The average Credit Card limit for an artist is going to be $1,000 or less. This also applies to 3rd party financing. The current pricing of the go plus tax puts it above this limit. $899.00 USD would have been a better target price.
That aside, this piece of kit is well worth the price. If you factor in a two channel controller with the same capability, a battery pack to power it, and a laptop, you end up above the $1,000 mark. Plus, pricing it under $800 would decrease the personal valuation of the product. Unless Pioneer reduces their pricing along with InMusic dropping the pricing of their Rane products, we will not see DJ Hardware returning to the pricing we had back in the late 90’s to early 2000’s.
