BLI F& A/B with QSI
Posted by mreagant on Monday, October 6, 2008 1:06 PM

I'm a little confused.  I see that Broadway Limited is offering an F7 A and B lash-up that includes QSI Sound.  Is this different from the BLI DC sound system described in the review in the November MR?  What exactly comes in this package?

David is spot on, the first run BLI F7's are powered by QSI Sound and DCC. Since then BLI has introduced Blueline Sound in addition to other lines to further confuse us all really well.

If that isnt enough, some of thier PCM F units are equippted one decoder in the A unit with pass through wiring to the B unit.

With the recent I1sa engine hitting the stores with QSI, it is possible that BLI is trying to to court and remarry to QSI again. Who knows?

Thanks, guys.  I see why I got confused.  One large shop/web site has the F7A/B with QSI listed as "pre-order" but in fine print indicates that the item was posted on the web site over 2 years ago.
