Sort of. The 8 channel expansion board adds an additional 8 output channels, for a total of 24. These additional channels could be used for supporting multiple subwoofers, arrayed surrounds, or bi- or tri-amping the mains.I am trying to sell my RS20i and someone asked me this question: "I was informed this could be upgraded to 24 channels with a 8 channel card?". Can the RS 20i be upgraded to 24 channels?
Quite a few of the Datasat dealers in the UK have gone quiet and no longer promote the Datasat (I suppose it is a tough sell at this point). Would be nice to see Datasat reinvigorate/reanimated but at this point the original dealer support is disappearing.^^^^ pretty much sums it up for me too, lol.
After ATI took over I wasn't sure if they would keep both Datasat and Theta alive but so far they have.
I won't need any more speakers than I have in the current room (7.x.4) but if and when I construct another dedicated room it would be nice to have the option of more speakers. First world problems, lol.😆
