Maestro versions

I noticed that the version of Maestro shown on the web has a different layout and jacks on the back. My unit does not have the headset, mono spkr or rem on. The layout is also different, what else is my version missing? I assume my serial/model number is 1616-5092-0100-9712.

Yes, it looks like some some changes have been made, at least to the Maestro photo shown on their website.  But if you look at the Maestro Users Guide dated Dec 7 2017 that back panel shows the same layout as my early pre-ordered Maestro (1616-5092-0100-5099).  Also the current Maestro Users Guide makes no mention of the REM ON jack. 

Perhaps the website photo you ran across is showing Maestro v2.0?

Richard,

Can you show the manual/pictures your are comparing?  REM on was never on a Maestro version.  That is the back panel of a 6000 radio.

If we have the wrong documents posted somewhere, I would like to get it fixed.

Ah, that is a very old computer 3D sketch.  Those were never manufactured with those connections on it.  Nice catch!

I'll work on getting updated actual photos of the Maestro updated on the website early next week.

How do you tell the difference between a V1 and V2 Maestro?  I have searched the community, but found nothing definitive.

Thanks, Markus.

What are the differences between Maestro Series A vs B ?

Functionally, nothing.

The display module in the Maestro A was discontinued, so we did a last buy for serviceability but not enough to do a full production run, so the Maestro B has a different display model, but the same display specs.

The new display required a different interface control module to interface with it and the control (knob and buttons) boards.

You can also tell the difference in where the power button is located. The V1 Maestro is on top and V2 is on the left side.
