    Looking for anyone who has direct experience with both units to give a comparison. I have no problem buying a clone if it saves me good money, but I don't want to waste my money if they aren't even close to the real thing.

    OSA makes several different units. At one time they were making a direct clone using the API opamp and tranny. I have heard 3 of the 4 and while they are very good in their own right, they aint nothing like the real thing and didn't float my boat enough to get my money.

    I've checked out the OSA stuff, but it seems a bit expensive for a clone.
