Haven't actually read the manual yet, but after watching the first video above I was curious how to transfer my PRIRs and HPEQs currently in use on the A8 over to the A16 (whenever that device actually arrives). I assume I just place a microSD card containing the needed files into the A16 and somehow "import" them.
On the A8 you can access PRIR/HPEQ files either from internal numbered memory locations of the A8 into which they were previously saved, or directly from the SD card. And there are utility functions to transfer these files to/from the SD card and to/from memory. So I have all of my PRIR and HPEQ files (a) in memory locations, (b) on the 2GB FAT-formatted SD card, and (c) copied to my PC for backup (and for "hex edit" perhaps, say to change some ASCII text if desired). Creating a new microSD card from my PC A8 backups containing these PRIR and HPEQ files for use with the A16 is no problem.
But I don't see instructions in the manual as to whether the A8 file formats will be recognized immediately and used properly when the microSD card is read by the A16. There's no mention of any of this in the manual that I can find, relating to "File Utilities" or anywhere else. Perhaps there's no actual format difference between A8 and A16, maybe just a naming convention difference to distinguish them. And perhaps just more channel numbers for the A16 (beyond 7.1 of the A8, into the additional ones usable only by the A16) using some already established A8 convention for how the channels are designated and named. So maybe the A8 files are therefore inherently directly usable with no special consideration worthy of being mentioned in the manual. Time will tell, I suppose.
But it does seem like an oversight that there's no direct discussion in the manual about compatibility issues between A8 and A16 for current A8 users to understand. At the very least I would expect a discussion of how to use current A8 PRIR/HPEQ files on the A16.
