Steve, you're a good voice of reason and yes both S&P 500 & real estate have popped, putting this last minute Theta surprise meaningless in the overall scheme of things. Probably I was upset because this all but ruins bragging right that Casablanca could be had for under 20k
. Fact is even with this change it should still come in at around 22-24k or so (?)
, with street pricing likely still undercutting other ultra class SSP's, and sound quality that sets the reference standard.
Fact is Theta got me hook, line, and sinker. I cannot go back to using any other SSP and actually feel very lucky that we got Atmos at all (missing this would have been a true disaster). What is MSRP for 6 channel D3 btw? Time to become a "Craig's whisperer" for that special street pricing LOL.
Assuming I understand VGI correctly, my requests for Theta stay the same:
1. Special upgrade pricing
for new Premium 2 and Extreme D3 cards nearly a *must* as about 99% of your loyal customers have just been instantly left with useless and expensive cards.
2. 6 channel Premium card
must be made a priority IMHO for Casablanca to remain attractive/competitive to normal people (ie people other than me :-)).
