    The biggest difference between the 6500 and 6700 for me is that the 6700 has 2 SCUs, thus two antennas and true diversity reception.

    Elan, I faced a similar decision...there is a big price differential between the two. In the end I decided that I didn't need 8 panadaptors (just as well, my Maestro only des 2..), didn't need diversity, and could live without a 2m panadaptor at the same time as hf. I went for 6500, glad I did. Paul M0CVX

      Performance wise, I believe the only difference between the SCU in the 6500 and a SCU in the 6700 is that ultimately there is a bit more Panadapter/waterfall resolution at maximum zoom in the 6700 vs the 6500.  The performance of a RX slice would be the same..
