I really thought I would never see this.

Looks like it is not complete yet though.

Well that’s how I assume it is real. Only Rex is this full of shit. :tu:

Who is going to be the first person to call him and find out?
I would - but I don’t have 3 hours to waste! :hihi:

Guess this goes to show how much of a good job the "competition" must be doing.

Still, inzane prices... :deadbanana:

You willing to bet it's a hoax?

FWIW if Rex can charge $5k for a panel, I don't feel so bad about my prices. Unlike STS Metasonix really IS made of unobtanium....tubes for which production stopped 30 years ago.

Lots of threads about the sound of STS vs the competition

I'd put 10 bucks on it. Not Rex's style, he doesn't do single modules, and he's also a meticulous person who wouldn't put up a shitty website like this. I was also quoted a custom M-Class panel recently well below the prices listed here for most m-class panels, which makes no sense.

If you're right, and if the hostname is legitimate (I'm too lazy to research myshopify.com vs shopify.com, but it looks like they're maintained by the same entity) then the real takeaway here is how easy it is to impersonate a business on Shopify.

Who knows. Maybe Reverb hasn't been moving units for the guy.

If the site is still being built, prices could be placeholder. I really don't think he would charge $5k for a TKB or $1250 for an active processor.

Rex is a funny guy but not THAT funny.

Maybe this signals the return of the custom panel.

or he finally came to his senses and realized it was demoralizing to sell on reverb as a company, not to mention the fees. However I know not.

I asked him today and it’s not his site. He said he wasn’t aware of it.

I wonder if it's a kooky drop shipping scheme.

How much "would" one pay for a brand new, say, 4 panel STS system these days, out of interest?

Someone (i wonder who) has a bad sense of humor. Grade A troll. Talk about wasting time.
