Well after talking to alpine this morning...I won't be holding my breath waiting for the PXA-H800 and controller to be released this year. What a disappointment. I have really looking forward to this for a while now. It looks like I need to look at other DSPs and am really leaning towards the helix P-DSP at this point. I don't understand why Alpine is lagging on this one, you would think that they would have worked out all of the bugs by now.
