Just a thought...has anyone ever thought about an upgrading "buyback" program? I.E. when upgrading from a 16.4.2 to a 24.4.2 or a 24.4.2 to a 32.4.2AI, if the board falls above certain criteria, that Presonus can "buy it back" and refurbish it, then resell it? Just a curious idea...

I don't know that that makes good business sense for Presonus but the SL series have traditionally held up their resale value very well...

Only every consumer on the planet that buys a high-ticket item.
Of course we would all love the safety net to protect us from obsolescence - for manufacturers to buy-back our used goods to use towards the next one - just like trading in your car at the dealer... but notice "Ford" doesn't do it... the DEALER does. Hence trading in your gear at local music stores for a fraction of what you paid.
