I'm kinda a newbie, I guess. I've had a V1 for 5 years now, and have had a CM product since the original big, metal, had-a-VU-meter-for-strength-indicator, Escort.
However, I've noticed there are references in posts to versions which are not firm/software revisions, like 1.7 and 1.8. I quickly surfed V1's site, and didn't see any reference to it, so it's likely referring to a major change.
I have a V1 on software version 3.619, and I'm wondering which hardware version it is. Can someone loan me a clue? It's been "only" 5 years, so it's likely up-to-date, as it's not like Mr. Valentine has any planned obsolescence. Damn, he's a cool guy that way.
After thinking about my old Escort DSP, I couldn't help but start looking for them on E-Bay.... More as a museum piece, albeit a functional one to a large degree. I fear the one I had may have been misplaced, permanently, 100% accidentally. I always considered it my backup in case anything ever happened to the V1.
