Unlikely. If I understood Dan correctly their are actually 4 amps inside the Relentless and the way it is wired makes it truly balanced.

If you can afford the Relentless, odds are you will be rotating in something like Boulder 3050s soon or the Relentless replaces a recent purchase of 3050s (or darTZeels, or …)

I would expect most of the initial Relentless owners will have moved to it from M400s.

That is the case so far for all of them of which I am aware.
