No it's not possible, it's a different codec

OK, thanks Mike.
I am thinking about getting the new K3/0 and swapping my K3 for the TS-480 now in use with RemoteRig.  The K3 has the second reciever.

The RCC-1258MkIIs  which are in production now (and has been for more than a year) has a stereo codec. But it's a totally different footprint on the new chip so it's not possible to replace the mono chip

Thank you, I had the same question.
I will soon trade my mono version for a /s when Imove from the TS480 to the K3
