: I would suggest you go with the Whites. Better quality, better R&D department, broader dealer base and support. Also would suggest trying a mid-range first like the IDX or 6000 DI Pro. There is a shorter learning curve, quicker operator changes, less expensive, and yet still has good depth and discrimination.
