Since the upgrade, my 30000U has been working perfectly for all recordings I've made. It even got a little easier to use the DST50 with the 30000U since the 30000U now allows manual speed selection with the DST50.
Bottom line is I'm please with the 30000U performance after the upgrade and had many many freezes prior to the upgrade.
Thanks for the info. I'm in the process of trying to buy a unit. 6th Ave. ($1097) is out of stock, and doesn't know if they'll be receiving anymore. J & R raised their price to $1199 and e-Cost is $1130 plus "service charge" and delivery.
The Gentleman I spoke with said "I'll have to check with my buyer to see if we'll be getting any more of these". He did say he would e-mail me with an answer, one way or the other. I'll post this information as soon as I hear from them.
