Default GSi75 Integrated

I was wondering if anyone has heard this relatively new offering from AR. On paper, it looks very interesting.

I am hoping to find a retailer who has one on display.

What happened to this product? Its no longer on the website. Did the new styling go flat with consumers?

I don't get it.

So I take the GSi75 was discontinued and the "new" design language did not find consumers.

The story I heard was that the specification for the housing required very very tight tolerances.

The manufacturer of the chassis basically just supplied them as is and a large proportion had to be rejected. This made the costs balloon.

Shame though. Itís a beautiful design. But some of that language survives in the new Reference range.

This is their official explanation, same with the gs150, which I own. The whole Galileo series was very well built, sounds fantastic, and in my opinion, beautiful!
