i'm very new to this stuff, but after enough of my own research to cause persistent double vision (from reading my laptop screen) i went with a Leopard II and a couple of SECU-16's. i think the combination of price and function and flexibility are unique. i really hesitated in buying for a while because of my concerns about ADI's viability after seeing so little current activity on this forum. in the end, i resigned myself to diving into my ideas with what is already available, deciding that if ADI vaporized, so eventually would my current project.
Kevin's post is like a current of fresh air having just been blown into my house. please, ADI, keep it up!
