Thanks John.

I specifically need a USB-powered unit and it is not clear from the
Emona pages that the API for the Rigol scope is open and documented.
I need to be able to drive it from a Linux system.

Could you elaborate a bit on your assessment of the Rigol over the
USB units that you have seen? Which USB units have you seen and what
did you determine was deficient about them?

Thanks for your offer to bring it to the space, but I don't think
it will meet my requirements.
