That's my question as well, how to get my A8 PRIR into the A16. I think we just have to try this out when we got the A16. As for file handling etc. that's basically similar and better solved/easier to use in the A16. I would recommend reading the manual. You only need the PRIR. HPEQ can be newly generated with the A16. I'd say Smyths have different/more important work to do at the moment than care for those few users who have an A8 and an A16. They mentioned compatibility with the microphones: The A8 microphones are electrically NOT compatible with the A16. So don't try to use them with the A16! It could be damaged!
