Default Eleven Rack / Avid is not producing anymore Eleven Racks is that true or false?

Gents,
I was told that Avid is not producing anymore Eleven Racks is that true or false?

There's a website site I have called to ask some question about purchasing a unit. I was told all they are selling was scratch & dents of the Eleven Rack.

So I was wondering about if Avid is going to come out with something newer on the Eleven Rack line. If someone could please explain it would be greatly appreciated!

Kind Regards,
Ronnie

I can't imagine that being true - pure assumption on my part however

Could be web store just wants to get rid of some b-stock

Makes sense since Eleven rack is USB 2.0.

An updated revamped Eleven Rack with either of these options below would be the future way to go together with a lot of other options it is still lacking that people wish for in the forum!!!

FireWire 800 – 800Mbps
eSATA – 3Gbps
USB 3.0 – 5Gbpps
Thunderbolt – 10Gbps

I doubt it, Eleven is selling like crazy. They just released a standalone editor to cater to all of those who bought it without pro tools. Just go to ebay and see how many dealers are splitting the deal and selling Eleven hardware by itself. My guess is another expansion pack is on the way so the website you spoke with could be right as there might be some sort of delay to get the new ELeven Rack with the upcoming model pack. This is just an educated guess and if I were you, I would wait only if I wanted pro tools otherwise I would get it from ebay Brand New Deliverd for $374 (without Pro tools) and if the Xpansion pack comes, you might have to spend another $100.

It could just be that the particular store you were talking to will no longer be carrying the Eleven Rack. On the other hand, the standalone editor could have been a nice send-off for the product so that users are not left in the lurch when it is discontinued. I'm thinking of buying one, or something else, in the next few weeks, so timely word on this would be helpful to me.

FireWire 800 – 800Mbps

eSATA – 3Gbps

USB 3.0 – 5Gbpps

Thunderbolt – 10Gbps

Why does any of that matter? What would you use the extra interface bandwidth for and why? USB2 is widely supported across Macs and PCs and is a great low-end interface (when Apple does not break it, cough). And if Avid combined a much higher end interface into an Eleven Rack and let's it compete more with its own more expensive interfaces who will want to pay the increased price?

I am not following why eSATA is even on your list. Nobody uses eSATA for an audio interface, and eSATA can also go to 6Gbps.

The only reason with an Eleven Rack class product for moving from USB 2 to 3 I could see is if some incompatibility problems with USB 3 hardware showed up and as not fixable in drivers, I do not expect that is the case. And Firewire is dead technology, nobody is going to design anything new that relies on that, and a Thunderbolt is effectively Mac only.

Any thing new - correct - many interfaces may still come with these connectors but just for compatibility purposes.

For the time being

Whilst it would be nice to see some improvements to the 11R, for me whether it's continued or discontinued is a moot point since I already have what I paid for.....a cool orange box that sounds great.

Love that orange box for sure
