If you can stretch your own budget just a little the last list price I saw for the roadhog 4 was $10.5k. This would allow you to stay within the hog line and give you a lot of features for your money. Otherwise, the nano wing comes in at under 5k and you could go with a hogpc setup.

no way are you going to see a hog 4 for that price.. the hog 3's were double that.

I have ZERO experience with Jans products.. i know people that swear buy them. for your budget. Chamsys wings were the best bet imo.

tell us how it worked out in a few months :)

Actually Daniel Goodnow was spot on with the RoadHog 4 MSRP, $10,500.  Some online retailers have it for $9,500 or so. 
As for the OP, the Jans has a fairly high profile in the HOW market, so it will be a known quantity.

Old thread but here's some updates:

1.  PC Wing + Mini Wing makes no sense.  The two will not run on the same system as separate consoles and will not give you more playbacks.  Mini Wing + Extra wing will up your physical playback count as will PC Wing +Extra Wing. 

2.  Enttec Pro is still supported but because of hardware issues with the Enttec basic USB dongle Chamsys has quit support to the product.  In return they have released a single universe dongle in the same price range.   Enttec Pro is still supported but without a Chamsys product it is only good for 1 universe.   You can use it to add a universe to a Mini Wing, PC wing or any other full Chamsys product.   

3.  Pricing has dropped significantly on these units.  Chamsys ditched PRG distribution this past summer and is currently selling directly to it's dealer network.   As a result prices have dropped significantly without a third party in the way.   PRG did offer a tremendous amount us support for Chamsys products here in North America but Chamsys has opened a Florida branch and promises to keep up the customer support from this office.  Prices do fluctuate slightly due to exchange rates. 

So a Mini Wing will run around $1200
PC wing roughly $2500
Extra Wing same as PC Wing
Maxi Wing around the $5500 point. 

The new MQ60 is supposed to be released very soon and will run in the $7K range as a full featured compact console.   The MQ40 which is a little less featured will be in the $5K range.   

Of course your pricing is subject to your negotiation skills with your local dealer.
