Does anyone have information on the future of the Elk M1? I am considering installing a M1G for someone, but everywhere I look on the forums(here, AVS, worthington, software forums, etc), the conversation is mainly HAI. There are a few lingering threads around about elk vs HAI, and they seem to be balanced, but reading closely they usually conclude HAI unless you are a DIY and need active support. In the last year or so it seems the M1G releases/feature updates from elk have slowed to a trickle. Even the elk dealer site forum is looking pretty dead (anyone else noticed that the last M1 newsletter on the site is from March 2007?) . Has HAI won the battle with its critical mass of features/products?
My feeling is that the elk M1 was installed by a number of DIYers a year or two back, but there is not much attention focused on it now. Which brings me to the future. Is the M1G product line/support/manufacturing growing or heading the way of windows 2000? Is there an active product release schedule or new planned features and partners? I feel like the M1 family is at a minimum size right now(at least compared to HAI), and needs to keep growing to be successful. Thanks!
