Default JR12X replacemnt??

Any news when a new top of the line transmitter is coming. Thinking of buying a 12X would hate to have the new version show up a month later.

Unlikely, JR are concentrating on DMSS at the moment and the next beast to put in an appearance will be the XG11. Then probably an XG9, I know they where looking at a 16 channel system some years ago but that seems to have been put on the back burner.

I doubt if JR are going to produce any new DSM based systems (that's JR Japan by the way).

But our Japanese friends do have a tendency to surprise us all every now and then.....

Considering that the 12X was not designed by JR as a DSM system, but rather a modular system, that logic makes no sense . . . It was Horizon that asked JR to convolute the US 12X into a DSM only radio . . . the rest of the planet got the vastly superior modular version that can run any module/RF deck that they should choose to build for it. As such, an evolution of the 12X on the new JR RF section would be pretty trivial . . . .

Ermm almost correct, the rest of the world has a choice, we can get either version... dedicated DSX12 (without the DSMX option) or PCM12X with the module option.

At least you *get* the choice! Horizon decided to drop the modular here . . . apparently, they didn't think we had enough mental firepower to master the process of choice . . .
