 It seems like the actual company has cut off all direct contact and you need to go through the retail side, QS Industries. That web site is up, although there is little information other than an email contact (using a gmail address) and a referecne to go through the QSI Yahoo group for help.

 Since pretty much every OEM ditched them in favor of either Tsunami or ESU, I suspect they are not in the greatest health as a company.

I'll get in touch with the only (barely) remaining part of the company and see if there's going to be any long term availability in the near or far term, as to the availability of sound. 

FWIW... QSI Industries was always just a shell. QSI Solutions has always done the development, sound, and engineering once the ASIC was designed for the decoders. QSI Industries stopped supporting (and ultimately paying the bills owed to) QSI Solutions, leaving what was once a great small business in a pile of rubble.

 

There's more to the story,  but that's enough to get a gist of what happened. 

 

If anyone has questions or needs support, contact me and I'll do what I can to help you or get you in contact with the last remaining entity....

Wow. Thanks all for your help.  Looking for FP45, F7, and E8.

Is QSI and Quantum QSI the same?

BLI has manuals for several versions on their site.
