"Synth-heads: OP-1 Discontinued"


  

          

apparently issues with getting screens

prepare for $3000 OP-1s


http://www.synthanatomy.com/2018/12/teenage-engineering-op-1-synthesizer-officially-discontinued-rip-1.html

Teenage Engineering OP-1 RIP! The popular modern digital Synthesizer from Sweden will no longer be produced or available until further notice.
The Teenage Engineering OP-1 is without question one of the most popular modern Synthesizers. Not only because of its small portable shape but also because of its power. Also, many YouTube creators have become very popular while using this synth in their productions: Cuckoo, Andrew Huang, Red Means Recording ….

Recently there has been much speculation about the end of the OP-1. Now it is official. TE will no longer build or deliver the OP-1 due to production issues (screens…). Whether it will come out for a re-launch in 2019 or even an OP-1 (2) is still unclear. It would be nice if he came back. But one thing is certain: the prices of second-hand OP-1 will rise.

Teenage Engineering OP-1 RIP

Weren't they pretty affordable?
Or am I thinking about something else?

I found the price point prohibitive personally. Here's hoping they find a way to redesign/reimagine a new version of the product

the OP-Z doesn't seem like a flagship

it might just be a factory switch
and they may take the opportunity to improve on the OP1
