Dual Channel Audio in all RRC's?
« on: 2014-08-12, 17:59:09 »
I am a bit confused on which RRC's have dual-channel audio (dual RX) support. I understood that all
RRC's starting with hardware version 5 would have this included moving forward. The name was changed
from "RRC-1258MkII" to "RRC-1258MkIIs" to denote this new function. See: http://www.remoterig.com/wp/?page_id=1395

Now my group has been ordering some new RRC's with the plan to migrate to a dual RX K3 from our TS-480.
I was surprised that the RRC's are not marked "RRC-1258MkIIs", but instead have the old "RRC-1258MkII" on
them instead, indicating a single-channel audio version. However, the box and sticker on the bottom have
"MkIIs" on them (hardware v7).

Is this a mistake on the RRC front markings, or are there different versions floating around? I hope my original
assumption was correct that all starting v5 are dual RX, otherwise we bought some potentially useless RRC's.

That's correct. From version 5 dual RX was introduced. Bottom label says 1258MkIIs. The front has shown RRC1258MkII from the first unit and still does.

Thanks for verifying, Mike. Just wanted to make sure, since I had some nervous users.
