The Amadeus Interlink was basically a high speed network designed to be used between QLs, PCs and other machines - they developed it when they realised it could be used for Fleet Tactical Command!
A lot of this stuff is missing from the QL Wiki
If you remember, I sold you an Amadeus interface and a parallel module thaf allowed the QL to network with a PC running MSDOS and DIREN's QL-PC File Server alllowed the PC resources to used by the QL. There was manuals with tge u its I sold.
I must admit, I wish I had kept it, but this Amadeus unit has a sound inteface, the parallel module can be connected to it as well.
I found following about Amdeus system in a QLhistry2005 document from The Distribution DVD.
Di-Ren launch the ill-fated System Amadeus, a token ring expansion system designed to allow peripherals to be daisy chained from the EPROM slot of a QL. The system promised parallel ports, fast serial ports, DIY interfaces, sound sampler and playback, but was eventually abandoned later in the year.
