I noticed today that Newark has raised the regular price to $314. But they still have it on sale for $219, so that may just be a little bit of marketing on their part ("save $95!" sounds like a better deal than "save $80"). I expect it to remain on sale through Cyber Monday at least.
Just out of curiosity I checked again today: this modulator is now up to over $320! ($299 each if you buy 4 or more.) Starting to regret not picking up one at the $219 price last fall; I would've expected the price of these to drop, not continue to rise, but I guess there's not much competition (the closest is probably PVI's MiniMod-2, retailing for $495).

Still nothing AFAICS

Did anyone ever give this one a try? It's $365; only a bit more than the Stellar Labs one now. Might be worth it if the SL's shortcomings have been overcome
