I am looking forward to compare the Isleta to a Nagra EMP I have, or hearing from someone who has done the same.
The estimated pricing you quoted I believe was for an earlier, potential mono version. If you get the news letter you would have received more current pricing info.

I am aiming to stick to those prices, which requires a careful chassis design. In other words, the extra time is to save money, not increase.

A few folks have compared the ISLETA prototype against some Nagra & SD products. One engineer told me, humorously, that after using ISLETA and then returning to his previous device made him fell like an audio "janitor" I took that as a good sign.

I understood that pricing was for a mono version (I did not know about any newsletter), and I look forward to the release of the Isleta. Not sure what you meant regarding audio janitor, though no harm is done with joking around.

I'd first replace the power switch. Don't get it why such slider switches are used. They tend to be unreliable and cannot be sealed correctly and there's additional dirt ingress due to the front panel cutout. Rotary or toggle switches (with large bushing) are available fully sealed.

If you're a janitor, I must be on a haz-mat team...

I use Nagra preamps in the VI and EMP, so if those are for janitors then the Isleta must be for gods . . .

From all accounts I've heard Pueblo is solid so my guess is they will come out with the Isleta when they are ready to do so. In the meantime we have very fine battery powered preamps such as the Nagra EMP.
