i would say they make top shelf products, have a couple rondos and a newer sun 1000 on the way, comparable to the rondo 600. it will find a home on my midwest A4 in the slipstream. another thing is you cannot go wrong ordering from electric jet or across the border with icare. both are top notch.

I just got my Smile yesterday. Haven't had the chance to install it in my Voyager yet, but it looks very nicely made. This is my first Kontronik so I don't know how it compares to other models. But I was told this it the replacement for 3SLB series. It's supposed to be smaller, not to mention cheaper, too. Now I know why they call it "Smile". :-)
