Quoted from J85M:
No of course they wouldn’t have advertised that. Here everyone IC $200 per unit, but if your clever you really only need one!
It’s like Jacks JP Pin reveal stream, Jack got asked about being able to upgrade the small lcd and he went into something like “yeah probably if you get….” Before Watson cut him off real quick with “no no no nah you can’t do that” it was so obvious from the exchange it can be done, but stern won’t advertise that similar to them not shouting from the rooftops you can likely get away with one IC.
It’s really simple if Stern to sell more units lower the price and bring IC into the market as a lose leader type product which it should have been from the start.
Really bad analogy - a display is a display… and they didn’t sell it as a kit.
Stern isn’t trying to make retro kits a profit center.
And you still didn’t answer what you’d get. Every workflow today starts with the scanner.
