Other than a high-end/more expensive version of the X2GS, using a larger higher-quality GS bank and a higher-end SAM5000 DSP, I'm not sure what you'd want. It's possible - albeit expensive and time-consuming for Mr. Dreamblaster - to use one of those higher-end chips to make a replacement desktop MIDI module that does everything the last generation of Sound Canvas/Studio Canvas modules could do. That means the standard MIDI interface, USB 2.0, SPDIF/Optical, and such, with a higher quality of sound than what those modules could do, due to the better chips and larger GS ROM data. As far as I know, none of the GM banks made for the Dream chips are GM2-compliant/compatible, so having a single bank with HQ GS sounds is something desirable for enthusiasts.
