I do not know the HSO-14, but when I asked what the 8607 costs new, I
got ~5000 CHF for the "lowest" grade and over 14k CHF for the highest
grade. Of course this was a couple of years ago. I do not know how
the prices changed in the meantime. Considering that Rakon does not
build a true BVA, but instead puts the electrodes directly on the
resonator, I would expect them to be quite a bit cheaper (because
it doesn't require the couple of µm precision between the resonator
and the holder/elctrodes the BVA has).
It is upon moral qualities that a society is ultimately founded. All
the prosperity and technological sophistication in the world is of no
use without that foundation.
