It doesn't make sense to invest $40 each into camera specific transmitters that will be used to only trigger dumb monoblocks..

Which is why Adorama came out with their $25 Flashpoint SPT single-pin transceivers .

It would be better just to spend $139 to get new "smart" monoblocks that have built in wireless triggers with complete remote control that is not camera specific.

Yup. BTW, the Godox MS  series is newer than the SKII, but only 200 Ws and 300 Ws units, and slower on the recycle. Smaller and go down to 1/32, though, not just 1/16.
