Jules,

I'd guess that, for sony, the entirety of our world of pro-audio is basicly viewed as a lost leader for R&D. The 3324, 3348, and sony Oxford must have generated less actual profit for them, than say, their Japan property maintenance division realised changing office buildings one year.

As an example, I heard that around 30 million pounds, and 13 years, were invested in the Oxford before their was anything to look at, and there are maybe 20 or so now sold after 16 years, less manufacturing costs.

At the vanguard (only) of digital audio technology, with a few notable exceptions, pro Audio is dependant on charity !
