We've been producing the Lux for 8 years. It's been through 2 major versions and 4 minor versions. During this time, we've learned a lot about what could be possible with this product.

The Sente represents the culmination of our learnings. It is essentially an evolved version of the Lux - optimized, modular, and still high quality. 

Even the smaller size of the Sente is an optimization. The Lux uses a 27.5" monitor, which is a little too big for how close you are to the screen. The Sente's 24" monitor feels better to play on.

Additionally, because the Sente has a significantly lower price point (due to mass production instead of the Lux's made-to-order manufacturing), it means we can produce accessories like different control panels, marquee toppers, and more.

Because we feel the Sente is essentially an improved Lux, the Lux will be discontinued when the Sente becomes available.
