Why does it cost so damn much?

It's more of a rhetorical question, but wouldn't it have made more sense to make an App that does what this screen does, and just built the housing kind of like the Mackie offering? I don't really expect anyone to answer that, but at $2500, there's got to be some logic to this no?

BB1970 - I think it depends on the customer. Some people don't want to fuss with tablet computers. It makes more sense to make a product with an iPad dock in the short term, but in the long term a digital mixer that doesn't rely on a thrid party brain will likely prove to be a more stable system. The customer this appears to be targeted at likely isn't the kind of person who checks out Sonic State on the regular. This appears to be designed for working bands who want an alternative to traditional PA hardware. Working bands typically are willing to spend a little bit of money on gear, especially if it can solve some nagging old issues.
