Studer wouldn't have minded shifting some A700 bits - they were reported as having laid down a large production line for the type in anticipation of high sales. As it is, production petered out at just over 20,000 - not bad, but paltry compared to hundreds of thousands of A77s. Cost was probably the main reason - although cheap for a studio-standard machine, it launched at around 600 - around twice the price of the A77, and went over 2000 before production ended.
