    It looks pretty fishy to me Big Bill. There is nothing on the Internet about the company or this product.
    I am sure that if it was legit, that there would be plenty written up about it here.

    That looks homemade, but might work. I have had boxes that guys strip the decoders from a sansui receiver and make a standalone. Lots of questions to ask if you wish to purchase.

    it is a photolume decoder (try google) and is based on the same design as a qsd-2 should decode qs very well. It was mentioned in an article by Scott Varner in quad incorporated.

    If you decide to go for it, please let us know what you think of it. I have a Sansui QSD-2 that boxmusic recapped, and it is great. I think I prefer it to my recapped Tate, just because it is more versatile and less quirky.
