Yes, there is no chance to detect it aitomatically.

But there could be a nice Settings GUI:

Base Model                  A5/A6/A7
Buzz-Fix                        O YES  O NO
#1024-Fix                     O YES  O NO
Bass-Fix                        O YES  O NO

Maybe, FSO could support the underlaying "database"?
