    New software version available on our website, compatible with RoadRunner (should have better reception and sound quality)...

    Thumbs up

    Webshop opened up for everyone, not only pre-orderers!

    http://direct.xtronic.be

    Go ahead and order away

    The price is still the same for the internal unit, we got quotes today on the housing for the external one, so pricing on that will be available later today!

    If only it wasnt so expensive

    $165 AUD....I could buy 2 car radios for that price.

    Any ideas when prices will be coming down, if at all?
    I know you have to recoup a lot of engineering and setup costs, etc, but surely a lower price point would sell a lot more units to quickly cover that?

    Sorry for being so cheap, I guess I'll just have to wait.

    If only it were so simple!

    The margins on this module are so low that we would have to sell a LOT more then currently possible to be able to lower the price.
    Racemier and Diogenes developped the radio as a hobby, so engineering costs are not even calculated into the selling price!
    The high quality components and low volumes they buy them in (still more then 100pcs a time!) makes for an expensive product to manufacture...

    Also, every module is manually tested 3 times (at different stages of the build), receiver modules are mounted by hand, each order is manually packaged and shipped... a lot of time goes into this all.

    I fully understand...just wish everything could be cheaper

    I'll have to get hold of one sooner or later though. I'm just hoping some LCD manufacturer will add USB radio control features to a motorised 7" indash VGA LCD with AM/FM and Amp....and not look like it was made in the 80s

    Unhappy

    I was under the impression that the new versions was going to opened up for sale today, atleast a price and a pre-order option??

    Am I wrong?

    If what you want is for your computer to get an fm tuner, get a tv tuner which includes fm, here is one at a much better price
