Televes DT790. Dropped by Solid Signal

It looks very good, to me. Specs are a little hard to come by.
Televes' website.....

I live in a deep fringe area and was thinking of swapping out the 8200, since I don't need VHF anyhow.

[If admin wants to move this to "antennas".. Go ahead.]
Well, 3 years later, It's been discontinued. At least the sale of it by Solid Signal.

I wonder why?

A couple of issues, I imagine:

Confusing part #'s Seems like everything is a "790"
Complicated to put together. The SS video was telling...
Big and heavy by Stuarts assessment.
Not price competitive for a relatively unknown antenna., (seems that they have adjusted the pricing though)
A lot don't like the built in pre-amp. It was suspicious anyhow since it was autogain.

I chatted with Solid Signal, this one is backordered:
Televes DATBOSS LR Long-Range Amplified UHF TV Antenna LTE Filter

The recommended replacement is the:
Televes DATBOSS Mix LR UHF VHF Long Range Outdoor TV Antenna

This one was discontinued:
Televes DAT790 LR Mix UHF VHF Long Range Antenna
