I currently own a SSHDR-1 unit that I picked up locally, I have yet to use the unit beacuse I have been using the spectral systems prism for the most part ( both considered to be dinosaurs in the digital audio realm ). I was considering selling the SSHDR-1 and upgrading to a newer SS system bringing myself into the future. In my situation is it worth the cost and learning curve. This is used in a small personal studio for my music and AV projects. I'd like to hear from anyone who has used the SS products in a non production environment to see if the improved specs are really worth the money envolved in upgrading. thanks .
