Comments include:

1) Cables -- http://www.libertycable.com/  good cables, great service,
will put the pheonix on for you :-)
2) Consider a different 4 headed card, even if it's not in the spec.
The Matrox cards are so far behind in technology it's scary.  Nvidia
makes a 4 headed card for AGP.  Haven't played with it but hey, why not
have *some* fun ;-)
3) Go with the XAP800, TH2, more mics, then you can run G-Ware on the
display computer and control them all from the display.  You can
consider whether to buy the control computer at all then.
4) My stack overflowed...sorry

The one thing I'd say is that, unless your room is really small, I'd go
for the Gentner 800 rather than 400 - even if you only buy 4 mics
initially. We'd love to have more flexibility with microphones and 4
just isn't enough.
