The page I got from Google is a one page site with no menu and the main page is a mile long. ;-) The page for product ordering is www.edmdesign.com/orders.html On their main page, their menu is a pop-up type menu that appears when you hover over the lime green box containing their name "EDM Electronics" right at the top of the page.
  2. I checked out the EDM site today and it appears that the RDS model (EDM-LCD-RDS-EP) is now available to be purchased (add-to-cart button no longer blocked). $235 shipped to the US. Hopefully a group buy will be happening in the near future--add me to the list since I may be interested.

If you navigate the site, you won't find the cards anywhere (the above site must have been found via the search function). Just a couple of days I ago I emailed LOR about them no longer having gift cards, and this is the response I received: We offered Gift Certificates last year during the Christmas Season. They were not a big seller. We may place them back in the store this year but we are not 100% sure. Best regards, Dan Light O Rama, Inc. Bummer. I was hoping to get some of these as birthday and Christmas gifts--actually even already told family to just go to the site and they would see where to buy them. I just figured that several people would rely on these for site expansion, especially in a poor economy. Not sure what difference it makes whether they sell a few versus a lot--maybe it complicates their ordering process system. Maybe if a lot of members reply to this thread LOR will reconsider.

I am really torn between these from CDI and Darryll's--I lean towards Darryll's (based on appearance and firing rate), but CDI's are cheaper, use less power, and potentially more reliable. I am new to LOR this year and planning about a 10-12ft megatree, with 10 strobes within it. Another issue of concern: I live on the outer edge of a 90 degree bend in the road, and the strobes will be in the megatree that is about 30' from the road. Is there such a thing as "too bright" of a flash from these, thus blinding a driving on the bend? Would be bad if a driver crashed into the display or a house! Not sure if either the CDI or Xeon ones would make a difference with this (thinking particularly of the initial unison flash). Or is this not something to even be concerned about--10 bulbs at 30-40 feet? I have never seen these in a display live--only others videos, which doesn't capture the true effect.

After reading of that limitation in the instructions I switched from the mp3 director/player I had been using, and started using the pc again for last year's show. ... Greg Interesting... Have you experienced this limitation, or just read it somewhere? I just searched the online manual/user guide for the mini-Director/MP3 player and don't see anything about tracks. Can anyone else comment on this from experience?

  7. I would be interested to hear others' opinions of the mDC-MP3(mini Director Card with MP3 Player). Basically, what are the pros and cons of using this compared to using a older dedicated PC (Win98SE), which would be running out of the basement (compared to the mDC-MP3 running out of the garage)? New to LOR this year, and already planning for 32 channels using CTB16PC (probably 4-6 songs, each 2-4 minutes long, plus maybe some voiceovers). Probably going to be getting an EDM FM transmitter (rather than using my Belkin Tunecast II mod). If I understand correctly, I would need a timer to start/stop the show (thus I assume making it a little difficult to time it just right to turn off at the end of the show cycle). What other differences will I find? Other equipment needed? Do freezing temps affect the mDC-MP3's performance? How reliable is the unit? How would the audio quality compare? Any issue if using an EDM transmitter with it? Anything else I may be missing? Was originally planning on just using the PC, especially since on a budget, but figured I better get some opinions from the experts before the upcoming sale! :cool: Thanks!
  8. I too am interested in a group buy for an EDM. First year using LOR, and wanting to upgrade from a modified Belkin Tunecast II FM transmitter. Thanks!
