Thought them talking about lower distortion using these devices vs typical shottkys to rails was interesting.. although tbh I seem to recall removal of protection clamps not really making a difference to thd, noise etc.. depends how far down in the dirt we're looking, i suppose.

Ditto, looking forward to it. It's the last piece of my lab too .

Default along the lines of Moore’s Law

Putting your bench upgrade plans on hold and stashing $1000 in an envelope while you wait for the RTX to ship sounds like a good strategy for a time.

There will always be something newer and better. Something along the lines of Moore’s Law; in a couple of years there will be something twice as good to take its place.

Big picture, he who dies with the most toys wins.

Hehe true. But.. toys in this price range are few and far between for me. I finally snagged a boom microscope, so this will be the centerpiece, likely not getting replaced.

If I had the money I'd likely just get a full feature dscope since I'm used to the interface and software.

And I'll add that we allow people to use custom fonts within reason. We don't like colors and we don't like all caps, or all bold, other than that we leave it at the user's discretion as long as it is highly legible, and not intended to annoy.

Jens,

Kept meaning to ask but i kept forgetting. Couple things I find myself using on the Dscope that wont be available here are: various input and output impedance's and the option to output a common mode balanced signal. Given, these could be somewhat rigged up externally.. but, wondering on your thoughts on these kinds of features for future models/upgrades?

Thanks

Go to the group buy for information. It looks like it is going to be a bit later than Jens expected. (Parts not due in until mid October.)
