I have enough room to add 1 more machine and after playing honda350r's BIBLE a few weeks back I really want to add one to my collection. I haven't played the premium and just can't see spending 8500-9K on another Stern right now. Is the Premium a good substitute for an LE ? Seems to be just the speakers, shaker, and some cabinet stuff that sets the 2 models apart right ? I'm not selling the LE short, but rather looking to save some $$ to get a game I'd really like to play.
Thanks

I have the BIB and have played the Premium. Exactly the same game, I really can't tell that the larger subwoofer makes much of a difference. I love the color scheme of my BIB, but if I didn't buy one early, I would just buy the Premium and save $2k-$2500. Good Luck with your purchase.

The shaker and bling I think are the only differences now. I think that Steve Ritchie convinced Stern to include the upgraded speakers with the premium. So, to answer your question, I think the Premium is a worthy substitute. Still waiting for my BIBLE though...

ok if it's just the bling & shaker ( which i can simply add ) then I might fore-go my Xmen hold and run with the premium.

PM sent. I have a NIB premium available.

I disconnected those. Someone needs to make a mod for that area big time.

speaker system is the same.
The one thing I do like about the LE's over the premium that I have not herd anyone comment on, is the see through red plastic apron on the LE's. I actually like it a lot, its a nice touch to the bright playfield. I noticed this right away comparing the LE's to the premium. The premium ships with the standard solid black plastic apron.
