|400-799 units:||$155 standalone – $100 in Combo with HDfury device (50$ with Maestro TX/RX)|
|800+ units:||$165 – Stretch Goal! Dev Team will attempt to add new super powers!|
|After Pre-Order:||$179 or $199 if Dev Team succeed in adding new super powers!|
If we hit 800 pre-orders, Arcana might get these fresh new super powers before or right after shipping:
– Ability to forward CEC volume control from source to SONOS Arc
– Ability to forward CEC volume control from TV to SONOS Arc
– Ability to retrieve ARC from TV ARC input and forward it to SONOS Arc
Our Dev Team has a roadmap and a specific approach to make this a reality; there is no guarantee that it will work, but the outlook is VERY promising.
One full month of development work is needed to get this working. Our Dev Team will begin to develop these super powers if we can reach 800 pre-ordered units in total before units start shipping.
