- What is the feature or ability you would like to have?
InMusic: Unless you substantially feature-bracket these from now on regarding future additions, announce that after the initial roll-out in a few months the price will go up at least US$200-300
- How will this feature help you and others?
I believe this is bad for the Prime line in general having a product this underpriced with most of the same features as the flagship standalones.
- Is this feature available in an existing product? If so, what product?
I’ve never seen a company with a new line with this much potential undercut their flagship units in such a way. Yes, most other companies do massive feature bracketing by leaving features and capabilities out of the lower priced models. The 24/96khz capability on the standalones and few other difference are not sufficient, IMO, especially in light of Prime 4 having unique utilities of its own like portability, a large, unified combined screen, and buttons with updated labeling. I believe Prime 4 is underpriced to such a degree that in combination with the lack of feature bracketing this is unhealthy for the line, the Denon DJ brand, and InMusic’s trust with its customers.
- Does a workaround currently exist?
Raising the price and/or implementing certain substantial advanced features only on the flagship standalones.
- How often would you use this feature?
- Is there any additional information you’d like to add?
Such an announcement would increase Prime 4 sales for these first few months after release, repair harm done to early-adopter risk aversion, and solidify Prime as a force in the industry.
