I can understand your hesitation but that worry of a new unit coming out that makes the previous units obsolete, just isn't how Kemper operates and isn't something that Kemper users have to experience like a lot of other companies' loyal customers do (I'm not referring to anyone specific and being a dick lol that's just how 99% of companies operate).Realize this is an evergreen thread. Helix user. Think I’m ready to make the trade. But also understanding that the minute I do, Kemper will finally introduce a new model with a 2020 appropriate user interface.
The Kemper Stage has now been out a year. No summer NAMM. And probably no winter NAMM either, so my guess is the manufacturers will go their own way on product releases.
Any thoughts from the experts here?
And even if Kemper did release a new unit, the Kemper 1 would probably still see support and updates for another decade. The code for the software the Kemper uses is written pretty efficiently by my understanding, so there's a lot of room for more updates in the future since there's more processing power under the hood that can be utilized (not sure exactly how much though lol).
And like another user said, you could always get a Kemper and if a new one comes out, sell it to get the new one. And you'd see a pretty good return because Kempers hold their value really well
Edit : sorry for basically posting 2 novels in response to your questions lol. I was trying to be reassuring but, I didn't realize my posts were so insanely long hahaha
