Anyone know if Esoteric DV-30 is coming to the US?

I was on the Japanese Esoteric site and notices a DV-30. From what I can tell by looking at the back panel and using babble fish, its the same as the DV-50 except it does not have a balanced two channel output. It does however, have a DVI output! According to the site, the DV-50 sells for 500,000 yen while the DV-30 sells for 300,000 yen, quite a difference. It does have three filter options.

Any thoughts

The DVI feature is available on both but not worth it cost is 40Kyen /approx $380 and 60Kyen approx/$575 depending on FX. Video is the weakest feature for the money can go buy a Momitsu or Bravo.

There are other difs too in audio quality/components. But has many of the same features as DV-50. Neither have the VRDS. Need to spend quite a bit more for NEO VRDS in X-01-SACD or UX-1 for Uni.

P70/D70 is the flagship $10K+. Believe version up provides IEEE1394×1 on D70 & VU on 176.4kHz word sync in on P70.

X-30 is a budget version CDP using VRDS and RDOT.
