    Hello Sponsors.

    Does anyone have these in stock yet or planning on getting them in stock?
    If so, What would the damage be for one of these?

    Only Aquarium Depot are the importers, @AD Scott can tell you. I'm sure they will be around 10k

    I'm interested in the price of these units. I'd also like to know if there is a defined upgrade path from Gen 1 to Pro.

    PM me if required

    Hi Guys. Yes, we do have them in stock. But it's not an item a shop would keep in stock. If a shop needs them we can get it to them right away. We can get normally get stuff to central Durban shops next day if there's no slip-ups with the couriers. Let me know if you haven't heard from a shop and we'll call one of them in your area to get back to you right away.

    There is definitely going to be an upgrade kit for the G1 guys that want to upgrade. Not exactly sure when they'll be available but it will be very soon for sure. We'll keep you guys posted.

    Hi Scott,

    I'll come back here in post if I receive no pricing.

    Just a point you should consider in your discussions back to Ecotec.

    There are a few Radion owners looking for news on the upgrade path, remaining reasonably patient when you consider the initial press dates.

    I am facing the following decision, buy 4 new Pro,s then when the upgrade path is revealed upgrade the remaining 3 Gen 1's.

    Or if the upgrade info and timeline remains unclear, sell the Radions and purchase Pacific Suns.

    LIghting is a significant investment in this hobby and right now I feel like Ecotec is not providing suitable urgency to our needs in backend Africa. Even if we are a small market there are many markets at similar scale to ours. So solving the upgrade process and pricing for us may well solve many other similar markets too.

    Anyway that's just my poor little end consumer point of view.

    On the bright side, thanks go to you for posting quickly in this thread.

    Cheers

    I'll try to get a firmer date for you. It has to be just around the corner. I say that because they've asked us for estimates on orders over the next few months, plus we've been sent instructions on carrying out the upgrades already. The upgrades have not been released outside of the US. All distributors outside the US (including SA) is waiting for EcoTech to gear up to make sure they can cope with stock and provide service/support.

    G2 unit upgrades will be available very soon, but the Pro upgrades are going to be on hold for a while still. I'll post more details when I know more.

    So we well into June and still no update, fortunately I sold my units and didn't hang about waiting.

    Marketing message almost feels like a false promise in reality.

    AD Scott is a wholesaler. Any Petshop you see with a Aquarium Depot sign would be able to help you out.

    At half the price, I wouldnt worry about it too much. ;)
    Besides, there is a world wide warranty on all their stuff.
    Bought an MP40 from them, worked for a couple of months then stopped.
    Shipped it back to then and got a replacement no questions asked...:tt2:
