A Special Note About Rackmount Receivers

Rackmount units produced or updated from late 2016 to present have the manual specific to the receiver and its software version installed in the unit itself, accessible via the receiver’s web server. When feasible, this is the preferred method for finding information about your receiver. Just navigate to the HELP page in the remote client (bottom of the page). When that is not possible, you can use the archive below to find user manuals for compact receivers, compact receiver-combiners, and rackmount receivers by product generation and, for third-generation products, by system version.

The latest system software for Gen 3 receivers is Release 19.3. Quasonix recommends that you update to this version. Software/firmware updates can be added to your receiver on-site via SD card or Network Update. The same applies to certain feature upgrades such Adaptive Equalization and additional operating bands. Read this update guide to learn more about the process, or contact us at sales@quasonix.com regarding pricing of feature upgrades. Software/firmware updates are always free.
