Another X1000 and 1541 Ultimate II

Image
Recently I was given the opportunity to purchase another X1000 in Australia second hand for a good price. With what happened to me earlier this year, I decided it was a good idea to have a backup X1000 system, especially now they are sold out. I bought it and it arrived here last week!


What surprised me when it arrived is the much larger (wider) size of the R4 case, compared to the R3 case of my original X1000.
