I can't seem to find any online presence of a forum and mail list died around April.

I was in contact with Phil, N8VB two years ago. He was planning on an update to the QS1R back then. I haven't heard anything since. I hope he is doing well.

Update. I just took a peak at www.srl-llc.com. It looks like Phil is now selling his designs for general purpose applications.
FFT, CIC, DDC - code modules etc...  So the QS1R update is apparently deferred.

The old wiki supposedly moved to http://n8vb.duckdns.org/doku.php although that link doesn't work for me right now. Looks like Phil has a lot going on that's keeping him from the old stuff.

However SDRMaxV GUI and server software is still available.
http://www.srl-llc.com/qs1r_latest/index.html

You might query Phil and his intentions on the yahoo board that appears inactive, not defunct, simply because no one's recently posted to it.  I also hope his personal situation is OK.

14 bit ADC SDR products do much of what the 16 bit QS1R does cheaper I suspect : Phil may have elected not to duplicate the QS1R with updated components, even though they too are cheaper than the originals.

For normal receiving duty I've used SDRMax 3 or Panoptis for years because of its artistic presentation and uncluttered (if desired) graphics. All the functions can be brought out in movable Windows.  

I'm keeping my QS1R for that reason, although for that same purpose I'm using the Hermes based board product for the also quite beautiful CuSDR GUI developed by Herman DL2HVH.
