Post from Phil:
Two new soundboards coming in the next week, both are called the SaberCore 2.5 but the name is the only thing they have in common. One is made in the USA and features two sound fonts and an accelerometer, voice menu, one aux effect per font kill key required, 49.99 loose board, the other one is made in china has three sound fonts and physical motion sensors, two aux effects per font, onboard pcb with sleep no kill key required, no menu 39.99 loose board. Sound fonts are not adjustable on either. These are to bridge the gap between warrior and champion, they are for a new tier called veteran. Stay tuned for videos of each.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

This is great news ! Would have chosen one of these options for the Warrior Ronin MK2 that I recently ordered. Can't wait to see the videos. :)

What?! $50 for a board with two fonts! Holy crap, that's excellent. I'm hoping the fonts are Veridium and Crimson, since I missed out on the SC2.0. I'll probably also try the Chinese one too, I don't have that automatic hate of Chinese made stuff that some people do.

Awesome Brax
You had hinted this to me before, now it's a reality!
Will the come in ASP form?
If so I'll need to get one of each before they go on back order like the SC3 did!! :P :cheer:

I'm thinking the Chinese board's going to be one of those YDDSaber boards you find on the Hitoren sabers. If so, $40 is about the going rate from no-name eBay sellers, so being able to pick one up warrantied through SF is a better deal if you're wanting to try one out in a DIY build.

Also expecting the US board to be made by NovaConceptions - same guys behind the first two SaberCore varieties and a few boards before that. If you were happy with the old SaberCore 2.0, you'll enjoy the two-font 2.5.

Assuming my speculation is accurate, anyway.

So, what is the difference between the "accelerometer" of the USA-made version and the "physical motion sensors" of the Chinese import version?

Also, what 2 sound fonts are on the USA one, and what 3 sound fonts are on the import?

Lastly, what warranty applies to Veteran 1 and Veteran 2 tiers?

I'm interested in these, as they have a better price point for my first personal saber, but I'd like to fully know what I would be getting.

The accelerometer is a far more accurate sensor than the physical ones.

Until someone orders one to confirm or someone from SF tell us different, I would assume the USA one would be Viridian/Crimson combined to one board and the Import board should have a set of 3 fonts by either Crystal Sonix or KSith depending on version, assuming it's the board that I (and Kouri) think it is.

The standard warranty should apply. The Hero board is made by a 3rd party (Naigon's Electronic Creations) so I see no reason why these wouldn't be covered as well.

There will be more detailed information coming soon. Probably an intro video from Phil, like he did with the SC3 intro.
