The Spider V is going to be around for quite a while. Look at how long the Spider IV was available. The problem is that some of the online retailers have issues with their stock tracking systems that seem to mark things that are out of stock as being discontinued... There are no immediate plans to replace the V with something else.

They did release new hardware, but the only hardware differences are aesthetic. All the guts are still the same. They changed the silk screen and the knobs on the mkii versions are slightly different. Firmware 2.00 essentially turns all the original Spider V amps in Spider V mkii's.

I've flashed to the new firmware and it is so cool!   All the same functionality as listed for the Spider V MKII.     The ongoing support of this amp series is really quite astounding.

 

Very, very well done Line 6!

Very unexpected , you`d expected them to say that the hardware was different and it can`t be done , so buy a Mk2 ....... but thankfully thery`re now owned by YAMAHA  .. nice one
