Default MBox 3 Pro Discontinued?

How's this for a far out rumor? Someone over on 'Slutz said "I was going to buy an Mbox Pro 3 and couldnt find one in stock at my local Sam Ash, through Sweetwater and AMS. Turns out they've been discontinued, or at least that's what all 3 vendors told me and that they won't be recieving anymore."

Anyone?

1/2 year of serious problems...very un-Digi like. Digidesign hardware is historically rock solid for the most part.

wasn't there some initial production problems w/ the MB3P
maybe the quake disrupted some part(s) (I did read that is stopped 25% of global chip production)

Yep, see the response at gs:

And reading some of the poster's other threads it simply reeks of hooey. Besides, he says "AMS, Sam Ash and Sweetwater all told me the Mbox Pro's been discontinued as I tried to order one a few weeks ago", which means several weeks later word never got out among Avid users? Um, not. Trollwork.

Just a bad trolling by some discontent.

The stock of the bundle with PTLE8 is not being replenished now that 9 has been out for a while. Also, the hardware alone (with no software, for those who already had it) never went away.

I hate when people make stuff up and pass it off as what actually happened.
