I've used a variant of this one, I haven't checked all the details.
Never the less, it does a good job and many competing products eat the 
dust for the size and price.

They are heavier than any competing product in this size I have seen, 
but then you have to recall that the AT-cut crystal rod is burried 
inside a FR-4 casket giving thermal mass, and this is somewhat floating 
from the surrounding metal case. The result being better ability to 
handle thermal stress in the form of sudden temperature shifts.

Cheers,
Magnus
