New desktop receiver?
« on: April 01, 2021, 2119 UTC »
Was just surfing around and checked out the Palstar website. The following page states that the R30A receiver is discontinued and "R30B coming soon". Not sure when this was posted and any other information.  An email was sent and I will update this topic if and when I receive any more information.

Curious if some component is no longer available, thus a possible update for a R30B model.

AFAIK, cosmetic changes aside, the older R30 was replaced by the updated R30A largely due to a LCD supply issue.

I suppose that would more like technically the older R30CC, as there were other R30 models with one or even both Collins mechanical filters substituted with Murata ceramics.
