 | | |  SUPRA'S NEW 9600 MODEMS
 | | |  From Supra - Reprint from Z*Net Atari Online Magazine
 | | |  ----------------------------------------------------------------


 Supra has released 2 new 9600 modems - the 9600 Supra FaxModem v.32 and
 the 14400 Supra FaxModem v.32bis at a retail price of $299.95 and
 $399.95 respectively.  Supra is offering these NEW modem at special
 prices for BBS SysOps.

 Both modems support 300-2400bps (Bell 103/212A, V.21 / 22A&B / 22bis /
 23), v.32 (9600bps), MNP 2-5/10, V42bis, 9600 send/receive fax (v.27ter/
 29), class 1/2 (fax software-fax modem communication standard), caller
 ID and voice. (Voice and caller ID can be enabled through low-cost, user
 -installable firm-ware upgrades available mid-1992.) The v.32bis model
 adds v.32bis (14400bps) and v.17 (14400 fax).  This is all packaged in
 Supra's famous small case (1" high x 4.5" wide x 6.5" long).

 The modems have 4 lights (RD/SD/OH/TR) and a LED display.  The display
 will show the connection rate, compression protocol, error correction
 protocol, etc. in a rotating fashion.

 HOW CAN SUPRA SELL A 9600 MODEM FOR 1/2-1/3 THE PRICE OF CURRENT MODEMS?

 This year the price of v.32/v.32bis technology will tumble to new lows.
 Supra is continuing its proud tradition of being a leader in using new
 chip-sets to lead the modem industry to a new price point.

 IF SUPRA IS USING A NEW CHIP-SET, HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT THE NEW MODEMS
 WILL NOT HAVE SOME PROBLEMS WHEN THEY ARE RELEASED?

 Supra is using a new Rockwell chip-set which condenses several of their
 older chips into 1 chip.  Rockwell is the leader in building modem
 chip-sets.  A majority of current 9600 modems are based upon the older
 Rockwell v.32 technology.  We do not foresee any problems, but if a
 problem does occur, Supra is committed to solving it as quickly as
 possible.  Supra also offers a 30 day Money Back Guarantee for products
 that are purchased directly from Supra.

 MY LOCAL USERS USE USR HST MODEMS.  WILL I BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE AT
 9600 BAUD WITH THEM?

 The maximum baud rate you will connect at with a HST modem is 2400.
 Depending on the age of the HST modem, you may also get a v42bis data
 compression connection.  If the user uses the USR Dual Standard modem,
 and it is setup correctly, you will connect at a baud rate of 9600 (or
 14400 if using v.32bis).  We expect that most owners of the HST modems
 will be upgrading to v.32 modems.

 I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF SUPRA.  HOW RELIABLE ARE THEIR MODEMS?

 Supra Corporation has been providing personal computer users with high-
 quality, low-cost peripherals since 1985.  In addition to manufacturing
 a very successful line of modems, Supra makes a variety of peripherals
 for Mac, IBM, Amiga and Atari computers.  Supra has excelled because of
 its unique combination of quality products, competitive prices, and
 excellent customer support.

 Supra has a complete line of modems from a standard 2400 modem to a 2400
 v.42bis, a 2400 FaxModem, a 9600 FaxModem and a 14400 FaxModem.  We have
 internal versions of most of these modems for the IBM and Amiga.  As
 with most of our products, every modem that we manufacture is tested and
 burned in on our test machines.
