    There's a mini headphone jack in the back, if you look closely at the video

    Exactly. Kemper for sure are smart enough to not cannibalize on their existing heads and racks.

    Oh cool, a car comparison!! That didn't take too long. Until we're driving Kempers, irrelevant comparison.

    You’re probably right. Looks exactly like one of the bolts found all across the back of the unit.

    Let’s get back to your used Behringer vs New Kemper comparison lol

    Where did I mention Behringer? There's a used Kemper rack and remote in Mint condition right now on Reverb for $1899. That's competition for a $1700-$1800 Profiler Stage.

    I get what you’re saying as a consumer, but that is little to no factor on putting out a price on a new unit

    All of the single Strymon pedals have a left and right output and a single TRS input that can be set for mono or stereo. Maybe this is the same?

    I think we’ll get a Kemper 2.0 at some point in the next few years

    It’s good as is & kind of refreshing that KPA doesn’t do the stagger release approach that continually screws customers

    For now, this stage profiler will make many people happy
    I look forward to the updates that are likely to come with it- they’re always awesome

    And I'm saying as someone who used to work in the MI retail biz I feel that that's very shortsighted, and other companies are already making changes to deal with the used market. But agree to disagree.

    Not sure why everyone is so negative about a floor based Kemper?
    Anyone else find it odd that it's got plastic jacks? Odd choice for any pro level floor unit unless it's a new design that makes them some sort of improvement?

    If they go the fractal route, they’ll drop the Kemper 2 a few years after the pedalboard. On the other hand, this launch proves they are nothing like Fractal (in a good way).

    looks cool, but my interest certainly depends on price point. ive got to believe they know theyre in the market competing against things like the gt-1000, the fm3, and the helix, all of which are around 1k ballparked.

    if they come in at 1600-1700 bucks....i just dont see it.

    Well on a toaster, plastic jacks make it possible to ground lift but since I see no ground lift buttons on this... :eek:

    C'mon, it’s a full profiler. It will likely cost a little more than an unpowered head/rack.
    If you don’t see it I'm sure many people will.

    No manufacturer of anything competes against the used price for their own gear, that's nuts. Among other things, if they did, used prices would go down, driving new price down, driving used price down etc., and before long everything would be free.

    I don't see why a floor unit with the capabilities of a toaster/rack + remote should sell for a lot less than the total price of the two.

    There's no indication those are plastic jacks. Looks like some sort of alloy
