In my opinion, your are not in a dilemma, you are in luck...hihi.

Of course the TCXO is a good feature to have. I'm not sure where it 
started in the later production run's of the Omni VI Plus, but Ten 
Tec switched to SMD components for some of the pc boards. That ONLY 
presents a little problem IF you ever have to do component 
replacement. I found the Omin 6 to be extremely reliable, like no 
failures in 11 years of heavy use. I've had my two Omni 6 Plus rigs 
less than six months, but certainly do not expect any problems with 
them either.
