Yes (in my opinion), but sometimes you don't need a King.  In the less than
King (price counts) catagory, I've been moderately pleased with the Abekas
(now Scitex) A-27.  It gets the job done at 1/3 the price, but you give up
some fancy filtering and limiting.

A-27 will do it if you don't need all the extra stuff.  I understand there
are a bunch more digital encoders in that same catagory and price range.
