The Vigatec will be superior to any other scaler and will compete head to head with the Faroudjas and may be superior in some ways. We will be evaluating one very soon.
The price will range from $4000 to $5500. While this is not cheap it is 1/3 the price of the Faroudja. A great value.
As posted in past threads this unit does everything.
I was at the verge of buying a Faroudja 3000 but was put off by some sale complications. Please keep us posted about the Vigatec. I am extremely interested, apart from saving the $$$$, on its versatibility though quality is still the main concern.
