You just going after price ? Cause that AK will most likely sound different.

I heard this will be around $2K so there's a substantial upgrade in price from R6 pro. I just hope it's worth the wait.

Well, I hope it's more than just an upgrade "in price" haha. I love the R6pro and love the form factor relative to it's awesome resolution.

I am intrigued by the R8 but doesn't it stand to reason that the cell phone signal would make the device more noisy? I mean already r6pro has an. EMI issue. I hope all that gets resolved.
