The second Line6 goes wireless with their Variax system, I'm throwing my old 4000 bucks rack out the window and getting a Line6 rig instead. I love the Variax guitars, but my set-up (patch switching etc.) is heavily automated via MIDI and wireless. I set it up this way to get rid of the friggin cables and not to be forced to tip-toe on my pedal board every couple of seconds. No way I'm going back to wired set-ups... Don't give a damn about the price point. Heck, I'd even pay good money for any third party solution to this problem.
