      for posting the link Myles . I just got through reading the Awards which are a treasure trove of good recommendations and commentary. I was particularly interested in your comments about the Magico S Pods which are high on my list of upgrades.

        I think the SPods should be standard issue. What is $39K vs. 41K? But guess Alon feels customers say $39k and think $30k. Like $0.99 vs. $1

          I agree, the performance gains make the S Pods a no brainer. Speaking for myself, I wouldn’t have blinked at the extra cost. But i’m with you, I think Alom was sensitive about the list price for the base finish tipping over $40k. That said, the S Pods hadn’t yet been released when I bought my S5 Mk2’s.
