But there is a demand for an all-in-one floor unit a la Helix, Headrush, AX8, BOSS GT, Amplifire. Those units outsell their rack counterparts (with maybe an exception for the AX8). Of course that means more cables going in and out, etc, but clearly many players like having everything at their feet and are ok with that trade off.
I don't see any problem were Kemper to have a floor board version for players who want it while still having the head/rack/remote configurations available for those that don't.
I actually take the complete opposite view. I really respect CK and the team for sticking to their vision. You can’t be all things to all people. Too many business fail by trying to do so but end up spreading themselves too thin and end up not being the best at anything.
