Thoughts on Vestax VCI 400

Vestax recently announced this super upgrade of the VCI300 at a price point of $1000.  This puts it into square contention with other 4-deck controllers in the same price range (Native Kontrol S4, Numark NS6, Pioneer DDJ S1 and T1 for a bit cheaper now) I have NO DOUBT that this controller (slated for late February release) will be a solid piece of equipment that really kills the 4 deck DJ controller functions where it needs to excel (the mappable matrix buttons are hugely awesome, and could really take this to the next level as a versatile dj/producer tool).  It sound like compatability with Traktor is top-notch, while Serato DJs should probably skip it until compatability with Itch is announced. (soon?)
