Firmware 8250 SAM monitors

Hello Ilkka,
i just noticed that GLM 2.0.5 displays a firmware version for my 8250 speakers.
It indicates "8250A 2 0008 0061 0030" for the left speaker and "8250A 2 0008 0057 0026" for the right one.
This makes me wonder if it is correct that the two speakers indicate different firmware versions (if they are actually different) and, of course, whether this is the latest version.
Thanks for your support!

Hi Markus,

I checked that the firmware was changed around April 2011. We manufacture speakers as units, not as pairs, so it is possible that two speakers manufactured even on same day can have different firmware version. The 0061 0030 is the latest version. You should not worry about this though because different version doesn't affect how the speaker sounds. They can be used as a pair in stereo system without any problems.

Hello Ilkka,
thanks for the reply. So if i understand correctly, the features of the speaker, i.e. filter shape or filter impementation, is identical in both firmware versions and there is no need to update one of them?
Thanks,
Markus

Hi Markus,

That is correct, there is no need to update the firmware.
