Do a search on Google Product Search. You'll find one for $2345.00. It's the best price I've seen so far. (Hope this doesn't violate any DUC rules or anything.)

Does anyone know if Digidesign has a trade in policy...their 7 slot 64 bit chassis for the newer 6 slot PE6R4?

Chris, I think there is a Digi-branded version of each of those two products.

Ug, I can't stand Sweetwater. I tried to order something once from them, a simple Kontakt II DVD and book. I got a call right after I placed the order, to 'confirm' my order. But the guy on the phone then spent the next 10 minutes trying to sell me more stuff. 'So what kind of work do you do...' etc.

I told him right there to cancel my order and will never consider buying from them again.

I give Guitar Center Pro all my business now. Gadget Hopkins who works out of the Sherman Oaks store and is their pro rep, no nonsense, great service and great prices. Has never tried to sell me more than I wanted, has always been great about finding out some information or the other that I needed to know.

With Sweetwater, I felt like I was buying a used car. Maybe it's not always that way, maybe I just got the bad luck of some really cheesy salesman.

But am happy now I have a 'guy' to go to for all my purchases and don't have to deal with companies like Sweetwater.

Just my .02

Don't forget you can specify deferent cable lengths? standard is 1 mitre but you can have 3 mitre and now they have just introduced 7 mitre ipass cables if you have the later one's with i-pass. (the first one's have 2 infiniband cables)

if you live in a larger city i thing this could be a great idea

i got a great deal on my magma from a local los angeles gear rental company who was upgrading all their PT rigs to new computers and chassis

it worked great in 7.4 until cs 6 came out

so i have stayed there since

but oddly enough it works with leopard in 7.4.2 and PT8

digidesign investigated this after my report through a phone call but never got back to me in regards to why i can't get past cs5 in the upgrade chain
