What I like about Connect Systems is that they're based in the USA and easy to get in touch with should you need any support.
I talked with Connect Systems by telephone today (04-17-2017) and they are not currently selling either the CS 760 or the CS 760 MAX because of radio sensitivity issues. The manufacturer of this radio (which must not be CSI) is having problems working out a solution and CSI does not know when the issue will be
resolved.

CSI is also going to release a mobile CS 800D which will have both UHF and VHF capabilities
sometime in early May.

In the meantime I think I will get the CSI 750. I have seen lots of good reviews about it.

Since the OP asked for the BEST DMR radio, & is discussing portable radios, the answer is the Motorola XPR7550e, or the Hytera PD982. If the OP had asked what the cheapest DMR radio was, the answer would probably be the TYT MD380.
