Developers and Experienced Users

In order to encourage and support developers, we ran an early access scheme in parallel with the beta test. The beta programme has since been extended to include experienced users. This is an important step on the way to a full retail release and gives us confidence in a wider coverage.

In recognition that the machines that are now available are not yet retail quality, a small discount is available during the test period - whatever changes are required to your machine to bring it up to a full retail equivalent, when available, are covered by this additional payment. Terms and conditions apply, see application form.

Effectively Advantage Six are leaving you with a deposit against the delivery of promised functionallity.

When you upgrade to the retail version, CJE Micro's will take over support.

A product brochure (version 1 - as available at the show) is available. This includes a developer application form.

If you wish to apply to be considered for the experienced user phase of the beta programme, fill in the form.


Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements. At the present time samples are available through the developer scheme (above), with the exception that, subject to qualification, you may choose to continue support directly through Advantage Six.

Many applications may already be completely supported.

A product brochure is available.



The A9home was launched at Wakefield 2005 to a very positive reception.
