The product life cycle (PCL) begins with the general availability (GA) announcement until it reaches the end of life (EOL). We will regularly publish end-of-life announcements (EOLA) for products, product lines, technologies, and third-party operating systems.


There are slight differences between legacy and obsolete products, but by standard, legacy and obsolete products are not available for purchase on our marketplace.

  • For legacy products, Acustica Audio will not provide any assistance, neither additional licenses nor authorizations. The additional authorization and product transfers will be delivered through the Aquarius Web services. Cross-grades to a newer product could be possible depending on the availability of specific promotions.
  • For obsolete products, Acustica Audio will not provide any assistance, neither additional licenses nor authorizations. Product transfers and cross-grades to a newer product will not be possible for obsolete products.


NOTE: We cannot guarantee the fully working functionality of legacy products if they are not used in conjunction with the target operating system for which they were originally developed.
