DW Spectrum. Their Server Or Your Server?

We are slowly working our way away from Dahua, and looking at DW, Hanwha and Vivotek. I am ready to cough up a lung looking at what DW wants for a Blackjack server. It may not be so bad for a larger install but for ~ 16 cameras, a $2900 MSRP seems high. I know I am not going to get the same Dahua $200 NVR pricing but, ouch.

I looked at their NVR but it does not seem to support Spectrum.

What are you DW guys using for a recorder? Do we need to learn how to build servers?
