This is my favorite console. I got it on sale a few years back for 5k. I wouldn't have payed more for it especially because the X32 has almost exactly the same features. I look at it as bare minimum: X32. Budget allows: M32. It is a little pricey, but it is totally worth it for the flexibility of it.
