Unlike the EET competitions this one is open to anyone from any country (hint, hint....) so I might have a go.....

Whilst this scope does look VERY tasty, it is difficult to find any concrete information about it on the URL at the top of your post Max.  Some of the things I want to know are
  • how does it charge, via USB or a dedicated charger (this assuming it is rechargeable)
  • does it have a PC interface to get results up on a larger screen?
  • as things like protocol analysis, wireless LAN, etc are "options" do they cost extra?  How much??
  • Are basic probes included?
  • what are the DMM specs?  does it just do volts or does it do current, resistance etc as well?

Can you hit up R&S for a bit more info??

Here is a link to their 328 page manual, it may have some of the info you are looking for.

@JGrubbs...thanks for that.  Now why would they not post that on the product page??!!

Here's a clickable link to it for anyone else who is interested.

Answers to the questions I posed above: 
  • how does it charge, via USB or a dedicated charger (this assuming it is rechargeable) Dedicated charger (included) only it seems,  but not a big deal.
  • does it have a PC interface to get results up on a larger screen?  Yes, and I think basic USB/Ethernet connection is free, but seems wireless is an "option" at extra cost.
  • as things like protocol analysis, wireless LAN, etc are "options" do they cost extra?  How much??  The basic instrument is $3K+.  "Software" options average $1k+ each.  The RS232 and I2C/SPI decoders are $1270 EACH.  Ouch!  Here's a typical sale site with prices.
  • Are basic probes included? Yes, for both scope & DMM.  Good.
  • what are the DMM specs?  does it just do volts or does it do current, resistance etc as well?  The 2-channel model has the DMM.  It can measure voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, temperature "and more...",  So top marks there.

All in all a great looking piece of gear.  The base price is not too bad, but if you want a few of the options it could get pretty expensive.  If I win one I'll be happy to do a full review, Max (or you could buy me one.... :-)
