That's quite a bold thing to say. It would be a big F-U to the great folks at Moog to bring out a 50 - 100 dollar Behringer Model D.
People are really ungrounded when it comes to the costs of product design and actually releasing one. Behringer won't get anywhere near $50, $200, or $500 because they want to not lose money.

Uli is definitely feeding into the myth with marketing statements like those, which is a bit off putting. He's telling people what they want to hear and not making promises he intends on keeping.

That's pretty trashy.
