That's alot of money for something that I'm not convinced is all that important frankly.
Assuming a healthy yeast pitch and you are making "normal" beers (less than 1.080 OG), I've gotten away without any aeration whatsover and produced clean and properly attenuated beers.
Seems like a better way is to buy the standard $40-60 oxygen kit from your homebrew shop of choice and drag it out for that occasional big beer.
