It really is a beautiful sounding machine... Every review says so.

However, Jorg is at his limit for completing v1.0 and after taking such a long period of time to get there I will be very hesitant to purchase a spectralis over the eagerly anticipated Linn Drum II-- where I have first hand experience with the class of Dave Smith Instruments support and assume Roger Linn will carry that legacy on his end.

So Jorg... if I could talk directly to you... I would say build a company. Make this thing real. It is a beautiful concept that was ahead of its time and now all the other players are catching up. I think its time to really put yourself into this!

I have been waiting for OS1.0 for ... four days. For the people that bought them two, three years ago, and are still waiting for the final few features.. yeah it must be a bummer. What I can tell you though, is that the machine has so much to offer in its current state that I'm not missing a few things, and can wait until summer for OS1.0

The Linn Drum II looks to be very cool, and Dave Smith has a proven track record and company bankroll to make it happen. I highly doubt though, that it will be able to functionally replace the Spectralis. We'll see!

I just picked one of these up as well a few weeks ago. The fact that the OS is .97L and not 1.0 is overblown. This thing is powerful, deep and inspiring. I was expecting it to be like an updated Polymorph but it is way way beyond my expectations there. The sound is absolutely stunning. Granted I've only had it for a few weeks but already it's kicking my other gear out the door. It's just a fantastic concept which is ahead of it's time.
