To get a beta version of the A9home users are asked to apply on the A9beta site.
As is the case for existing beta programme members, you will not lose out over retail customers by choosing to get a machine early. Advantage Six will upgrade your machine to retail standard when that becomes available.
Matt Edgar of Advantage Six commented, "We want the A9home to be ready when it is made generally available, but we empathize with the feelings of impatience that we are hearing from the wider user base."
Chris Evans, eponymous proprietor of CJEMicro's, the A9home retail partner, had this to say, "We are pleased to see that Advantage Six are taking the next step towards ensuring that the A9 comes to market ready for all end users. Anyone who doesn't feel that they qualify can still contact CJE with their details and we will keep them updated regarding the retail release of the A9home."
