Well, this is certainly the simplest design I've seen and the web site
is very nice to boot.  My guess is if one tries it, and it works, and
one is happy with it, then great!  Personally I'd be afraid to run the
output of the TIA through some resistors directly to the video input of
a monitor without some buffering.  But hey, if Atari put it in a
commercial product, it might not be that bad.

In fact there's a polyvox on ebay right now:

But for my own use, I already ordered the cybertech one.  ;-)
