True that! Same here, but there comes a time when you may have to drop back ten and punt. Because of all the drama surrounding the new mandatory support plan and my need to know what to run my projects with going forward, I'm right at the precipice. It has to do with what tools do I keep to do the job with.

I would imagine used prices are partly defined by dealer costs as well (although demand certainly plays a big role)... which could be lower on HDX then they were on TDM... but I don't know that for sure.

Used prices are always defined by demand.

I don't know that this is entirely true here. My theory is that lower dealer prices got us to these secondary market prices faster along with demand. But that is just a theory.

When I was moving away from LE and HD2 and HD3, I had to decide between HDX and HDN.... I decided on HDN after test driving a HDN Quad 4,1 MP system with some of my HD3 sessions from a 8 core 1,1 MP... I was blown away by the 4,1 Quad and HDN... really really impressed....

So, I went to HDN on a Quad 3.2 5,1 with 32 GB RAM and a 5770
I figure I can always throw a dual tray in it and rock dual 6's with 128 GB RAM when the time is right.... :)

For me this works. For the work we do it is currently plenty of horsepower even with the quad.... I'm sure over the next couple years as plugs get more intense, and PT gets more intense , or as we get bigger sessions , we'll do the CPU Tray swaps...

The other major consideration I made at the time, and one of the main reasons I hedged on the HDN front was because the Waves hardware was advertised (QUIETLY) .... and that intrigued me.... it gave me the option to move ahead with HDN, without being locked out of DSP plugs ..... and I wasn't 100% confident that everyone was gonna be on board with AAX DSP 64 (rightfully so, even now many are still not on board) .... SO... seemed to me that HDN and Waves DSP would be a better option for us in the long run.

So far it seems so. I'm hoping to add DLS's to two HDN rooms this year. Gonna be a stellar setup for us.

I feel for those that jumped into HDX ... at least those that hedged on the DSP side.... and didn't need it for I/O sake.... if we needed more than 64 I/O, it would have been out only option... but currently, we are good at 32 and 48.

I for one am just stoked on the Waves hardware and can't wait to snag it

They go pretty regularly for around that on eBay. I actually went back to look at the last auction I was watching, but I deleted it already. It was actually watching that auction, is what made me be inspired to start this thread.

Time will tell but it sounds like they are going to prevent the transfer of HD licenses between parties which will effectively kill the used Avid gear market. They've indicated their desire to do this by adding "friction" to the transfer process for a while now. You can't just do it on your own anymore. They have to approve the transfer.

Most people accept the hardware as a way to get the HD features, they don't buy the hardware cause it's so great on it's own, or Avid wouldn't be in the mess they are in now.
