Theia hasn’t been released yet. This topic has been discussed multiple times with regards to Theia. Simply put there is a parts shortage.

Adorability. Not everyone can spend unlimited funds on a RD. The DS1 will be half (or less than half) of Theia. There has to be a price point for all buyers.

We answered this question in the Radenso DS1 FAQ here: https://www.rdforum.org/threads/113653/

That isn’t the reason DS1 was released first, the reason is because there is a global chip shortage and Theia requires higher end more desirable parts than the DS1.

Because not everyone is a enthusiast like we are and doesn’t want to spend as much money. It is the perfect radar detector for someone starting out.

Same goes for computers, cars, etc.

Why would this be fishy?

Maybe to generates sales to a less than premium market to have a diversified portfolio? If Theia is $1000 or higher, how many non enthusiasts will pay that amount? One premium product not for sale yet generates zero company revenue!

DS1 gives premium single horn results at a competitive price!

Yes, that is well known. I was addressing his comments about being 'fishy' and being a 'step back'.
