There is, but they tend to be about 200-300 more and the dual tap setup would be about 120 to purchase. I'll probably do that in a year or two.

So I go to make the purchase this morning and what do I find? A Walmart price jump of $40! WTF? At $480 shipped w/protection plan for 3 years not sure if its a good deal when I can grab the Igloo one for $50 bucks less... Oh well, I guess I can always upgrade more than I planned!

Well, I just went ahead with the 6.0cuft Igloo setup. I figure it was pretty cheap and a 3yr warranty isn't bad. The only downside that I can see to this is the CO2 tank has to be stored inside the unit, but I'll live. Now I think I just have to make sure I have the right size lines.

If you are talking on the beer side, use 3/16" beer line, not the 1/4". I use between 8 and 10 feet in length to keep the foam down.
