Yeah, the KA660s do have an onboard SGEC... I've got a 4000/200 in the
pedistal mount and the rackmount versions, and hopefully support for them
will be forthcoming... (hint, hint, woohoo!)

I believe those are exactly what I have...  I've been trying to put up
pictures, but this annoying day job thing keeps getting in my way.  I just
mailed a few copies of the EK-KA660-TM out to a few chaps, so maybe it's
time for me to pull my finger out and put up some pictures...  I'll try to
do this tonight, but it'll probably happen on Tuesday.

The KA660 does as well, but just one channel.
