Reading the various threads, it struck me on that at least one firmware upgrade to the Datasat was done due to a single user's issue (maybe thebland's one with Auro center height extraction/downmix to L/R heights from reading the UK equivalent of AVS). That's a completely different ballgame than the model of the mainstream world. And more like what I'm used to seeing for software support for boutique products (not necessarily expensive ones, just ones with very dedicated audiences). In that context, maybe you can get away with near-identical products with different brand nameplates.
Denon 4311 with XT32 and Audyssey Pro
Oppo 93 and 103
Sherwood R-972 with its version of the Trinnov Optimizer
MiniDSP 10x10 HD
PSB Imagine T2, Center, and Surrounds (as of 5/2014); HSU ULS-15 subs (2)

Some quick but significant differences I see between the Storm Audio SSP-16 and the Datasat RS20i include:
- DSP chips, DAC etc
- upgrade path (eg Datasat has card 'slots' for ease of upgrade)
- operating interface
- how extra channels are added
datasat can you please populate the empty slots?
