Tape head life on the A1?

I know the DVX has an estimated tape head life of 1000 hours.

What is it for the A1?

merci!

I'd guess between 1,000 and 1,500. Sony has estimated head life of its DVCAM DSR500 cameras to be 1500 hours, and I've hard of some of the 1/3" chip SD cameras getting that much and more.
