I love my 7304-G100's as a nice step up from the 7500's, and short of the GSR or J-vendor. Be sure to get the G100's and not the NSE-100 (no PXF). Order of magnitude less horsepower, same cost, don't know why they even sell them. > | I?ve also heard of gear from companies like route > | science that could possibly achieve the same thing.
