AND THE WINNER IS: I just sent the purchase order into Digico for the CS-D5. After much research, number crunching, calling references, and most of all prayer, I executed the purchase order for the Digico today. Studer has a great product and at some point I want to get my hands on the console. Digico just has the best combination of features and price. Keep an eye out here for information on delivery and un-boxing photos.
