This thread is to be exclusively about the promised X32 expansion board for 32 track recording to SD Card, as announced by Uli Behringer on 27 Dec 2016.
I would remind all posters to be very careful not to inadvertently break any forum rules in what they write - keep it on topic and polite - because a previous thread on this topic has just been closed by a forum moderator who didn't like what he read there.
If we break no rules, this thread will be allowed to stay open.
The SD recording card expansion board is obviously a hot topic, as that previous thread was only one week old and already attracted 1,226 views by interested X32 owners and /or potential customers here.
If anybody had any technical specs, product information, price, availability or other news about this expansion board, please share it here.
Thank you very much, folks.
Have a nice day.

But still X-live is a Behringer product with Behringer's quality and 3years warranty period nor KlarkTeknik and 10 years warranty. So?

Can anyone answer, please?

Yes, I think I can answer this...
No, I'm afraid there isn't an expensive, overpriced Midas "M-Live" version of the Behringer X-Live card, since all Behringer X32 expansion boards are 100% compatible with all Midas M32 series. M32 and X32 use nearly all the same internal main boards, same Cyrus Logic 192kHz A/D and D/A converter boards, same DSP chips, same firmware, etc.
If you are absolutely determined to waste your money buying something unnecessarily expensive, for the peace of mind that larger pricetag brings you - then just buy two Behringer X-Live cards, but only install one of them, and keep the other as a spare!
Also get a magic marker pen and write "M I D A S" on the back of it in big letters!!
That way, you'll feel smug whenever someone comes into your studio, and feel happy you've spent double the money for the exact same functionality (as you generally do with Midas equivalents) and if it ever actually does break after 3 years (fairly unlikely...) you will have your other spare board already to install in a mere instant without any precious studio downtime, for total peace of mind.

Possible different quality and longer warranty option were reasons why I wrote my question. Nobody wants to pay more for the same hardware with only a different logo.
