I agree. I'm skipping the Source for a variety of reasons both financial and for the points you've brought up. For what it's worth for anyone considering the project, Larry Ho has stated that the Source layout and enclosure was actually done before the Geek Out was conceived because it's based on the design of their higher end LH products. Larry optimistically predicts March 2015 delivery of the Source. Here's Larry's post:
The ship date actually will be more accurate than Geek Wave
Because we have the design/module even earlier than Geek Out.
Currently our team set it at 2015 March.
