Thanks everyone. I think the web interface and audio processor are included in the price right now. They quoted me about $10K for the Ecreso 2Kw from WorldCast Sytems (used to be sold by Crown) and Nautel's VS2.5 is about $12K with no audio processor. Seems like a good value but I also lean toward Nautel. I need to sell the Nautel V7.5 and maybe even an FM3.5 before buying.

Hi Tom:

Crown sells them as their E series. I have a 1 KW running at 600 watts on a translator at 8200 feet AMSL that has been fine for about 3 years. It got its programming scrambled in a major snow caused power outage a few months ago but is on the air. Don wants it back at Crown to fix it but I am waiting for spring. 

At another translator site I have a Nautel VS-1 next to an E-750. They both run similar power levels but the Nautel draws about 5% more power.

The IP interface is an extra cost OPTION! Seems rediculos in this day and age. So count that in the price. 

Good to meet you at NAB last week.

Does anyone have experience with Ecreso transmitters made in France?

HTML5 based won’t be out for at least a year per Nautel. And we all know what that means….wink wink.
