New KORG Stageman 80 Rhythm PA Box Spotted at the Musikmesse

Spotted and shared by Gösta Wellmer at the Musikmesse.  Not seeing it on their site yet. Curious what it is and why it's so big.

Update: it's the KORG Stageman 80. I thought it looked familiar aside from the electribe knobs of course. The size is due to the built in speakers. It's a portable PA with built-in rhythm machine. From the site:

"You need rhythm for your solo performances. You have a rhythm machine, but you want your performance to feel more 'alive.'. The STAGEMAN 80 is a multi-function portable PA amp that will meet those needs. This unit contains a large number of high-quality rhythm patterns that can even respond to tempo change in realistic ways, due to KORG's new 'Real Groove Technology.' The STAGEMAN 80 can act as your personal drummer to support your live performances or practice sessions; you can even create a rhythm structure that's appropriate for your own song, while using a foot switch to control it in real time. With high-output, high-quality stereo speakers, it can also be used as a live PA. It additionally provides a recorder and audio player, as well as a full-featured mixer. The STAGEMAN 80 lets you perform with optimal sound backed by the ultimate rhythms.
