    The Legacy 2-channel amp Bill used at Axpona sounded really good, IMO. See any pricing on this amp?

    I believe the retail price on my Powerbloc2 when I picked it up was a little under $2K ($1850?).

    Legacy or any Legacy dealer can tell you exact prices and other details.

    Pricing will be higher on the i-V 7 depending upon configuration (7ch, 5ch, 4ch, etc....); details as they exist today are in the video.

    Again, check with Legacy or any dealer directly.

    So basically 4 ICEpower 1200AS modules in a box. Since each 1200AS is power supply + buffer + power stage all in a single board, I see no reason to have them all together in a box except to save some space and power cords maybe. Chassis looks nice, though.

    Apollon has something similar for 2700 euros.

    Assuming the layout and boards are exactly what this other manufacturer has done, I see your point.

    I'd still love to see the implementation that Legacy actually has done before I draw conclusions.

    There currently is only 1200AS using the new ICE Edge technology, so 4 x 1200AS is for sure. Maybe they added some extra buffer board for house sound, but I doubt it.

    I don't see anything extra, just the complete 1200AS board. Looks just like my 1200AS based amp x 4.

    The Apollon amp, yes, just the boards and a Motushop case in a tidy build. But the Legacy amp is yet to be revealed.

    I will say, when Bill does a product he does it right, I'm confident it will be a well designed piece worthy of the Legacy name.

    Very true...his probably not just 4 boards stuffed into a box and marked up.
