The MicroProse webstore is open
and has quantity available too. Stock : 22166
I know the manual offers very little new information except for analog pass-through but at least is is done in a better way then the Philco/Magnavox.
I also like the box buttons and the option of having a DC power source.I have not seen a power requirement of the DTT901 but how much energy will you be saving on your electric bill?
I was also thinking that a metal case and external power source should actually keep this converter box cooler running and prolong it's life then the Zenith.
I don't know if it has a audible beep signal meter like the Zenith but how many times will you be using this feature, I don't think it should be a deciding factor.
I also don't know about the mono/stereo option but have heard from doug_malloy and Curt that it does not have the Zenith audio problem that was present in all boxes before APRIL 2008.Passthru should be important to everyone.
Even in a Digital only area you can daisy-chain devices using this CECB or the DTT901 unlike the DTT900.We all know that the LG SoC is very important as it is probably has the best sensitivity
- read the reviews.
Both this CECB and the Zenith/Insignia share the same internal parts but different options set in the firmware.
This one is available NOW and is also cheaper.I think MicroProse will also not be one of these manufactures that will diaper over night.
They are after all have Frederic Chesnais who resigned as CEO of Atari Interactive, Inc and acquired Microprose and who I have been talking to Atari veteran Curt Vendel.
This is not like MaxMedia with David Buzzelli and James Bobik who are famous for nothing but promise everything and also have nothing.
We know that this CECB is real - look doug_malloy got one.
