Good catch ! I will buy back Cpu's, but only with a VPR head purchase. Freight arrives mid next week. Cpu core charge will be reimbursed $50-$65 once it arrives to me. First batch of VPR sets will be limited.

So to clarify, is the $499 the cost of a new CPU and VPR head, before or after the $50-65 you get back for returning your original CPU?

Does that mean for current owners who paid $629 for duals, it's another $499-65=$434 to upgrade to VPR?

If so, that'd be $1063 in the end to get a triple TMG head setup with a VPR center head, or about $125 cheaper than just going for an ALP 2 Reg + 1 Tx straight out of the gate.

$499 is retail price. This is not the RDF price i will announce. I sold hundreds of duals at $499 when we launched with the RDF discounts. Some $22,000+ was given back to the community out of my pocket. Every TMG set sold from here on out will be the new VPR cpu. The Gen 1 will be phazed out. I will also offer a Dual + VPR head + cable for $850 or less.

With all do respect, this thread is not about ALP,or comparing prices towards competitors. Please don't make this a TMG vs ALP debate.

I’m not here to debate TMG vs ALP. I’m just trying to get clear on the retail pricing you’ll be advertising and to get a sense how how the newer version of the TMG’s price compares to the ALP’s pricepoint given that pricing is one of the most important selling points of the TMG that no one will be ignoring or overlooking.

As far as I’m concerned, how much you’ll save over the ALP is one of the best parts of the TMG, but if you’d rather not talk about that, that’s up to you. For the sake of discussion though, we can ignore the competition. People can also do the math themselves based on what they paid with coupons, RDF discounts, Black Friday sales, if they bought a refurb, etc.

Anyway, could you please clarify what you mean by the $50-$65 core charge? Is that a rebate before or after the $499 upgrade price or something else entirely?

Jag, take your digital oscilloscope and start looking at the blocks from the 2019 dragon eye (specifically the first set sent out. Focus on the ones that repeat themselves( typically the first set of blocks sent out) and ignore the random ones. Note the KHZ of those none random per say blocks and timing in milliseconds. Have TMG pulse in between 1/2 timing of the milliseconds with matching or near matching KHZ of those first non random blocks timing like ALP does and see how that works out. You can see how alp responds to dragon eyes by scoping the alp after firing a dragon eye at it, record that chart. Then do the same for the Alp record that table then look at both of those tables on top of each other to see how the alp responds to dragon eye.

I want to know what about Canadian customers, including those that purchased the very early units?

I will have to discuss this with @Tripleturbo He is kinda recovering from a major work accident. Canada is his territory.

As for testing i sent the VPR system of to @Transporter and his crew, then off to Canada for @Smason.

Actually i'm gonna stick with my TMG gen 2 heads, hopefully they will still release updates for it, a lot of us have purchased the TMGs gen 2 heads. I’m praying the update support stays intact and does not fall off.

So let me get this straight , so I have to purchase a new vpr head and CPU for , say 499$ or a rdf discount 399 or what ever it may be , then I get a 65$ credit , off of said price ? Wow very very very disappointed , so to get a vpr head , I have to spend another 335$. Just for a vpr head and that's only if I get in on the rdf discount. Wow I can do math very well , all I have to say is well played tmg well played !! You have played this community well !!
