Hi Doc,
the CSAC GPSDO is still about 2x the price of Fury. The CSAC Oscillator as  
a component is priced at $1500 from Symmetricom. This is comparable to the 
Fury  with accessories.
The Fury has better short term stability, and better phase noise. It is  
designed for base-station applications where a loss of GPS signals is not  
The CSAC GPSDO has lower power, much faster warmup, lower height, and works 
 both in mobile and stationary environments. It is designed for portable  
applications such as man-pack radios and airborne platforms. It has five  
isolated frequency outputs.
The CSAC GPSDO will maintain phase and frequency accuracy better than the  
Fury during long holdovers (more than 24 hours).
It really depends on your requirements, both units offer specific  
advantages to different applications.

hope that helps,

How does  this compare to Fury in terms of precision?  They look very 
similar to  me.  The cesium flavor seems to be geared more toward the mobility.   
I am considering a Fury but would consider the csac if I could get a price  
close to $1500 complete with enclosure.  Any ideas as to what the actual  
price is on  these?
