I found the Pieps DSP V6.2 for right around $400 locally, sure beats the $550 that coast mountain sports is charging for last years v5.0.
I should have it in my hands by next week. Everyone I have spoken to can vouch for the Pieps, but what really sold me on it was the "Smart Transmitter" feature. Makes not only multiple beacon searches easier, but also makes it easier for you to be found if you are in a multi burial situation.
The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...
