1. Yes. No doubt. John's greatest strength is price.
2. Not a chance. I have been a PAiA customer over the past 3 years. One
thing I have certainly learned is that everything they release comes about
6 months or more after they say it will.
3. Good point. If people looking this you are in the same "league" with
PAiA, they will buy PAiA based on the price. You are absolutely correct
that setting your self above the rest in terms of features and quality will
be very beneficial to the long term success of MOTM.

Well, maybe a comparison of MOTM to the old Moog stuff would provide some
eye opening to those who do not "know" the quality like we do. (Like you
did with the UVCO)

OK. OK. I will make some noise. My pix seem to look a lot like yours.
