Lexicon Primetime II vs. Lexicon PCM42

Just wondering guys how these two units compare?
From what i understand they seem to be the same circuits but the Primetime II is more tweakable and has balanced in/out.
Both have the limiter using the CLM50 chips etc.
I wonder why the Primetime II seems to go for less than half the price of the PCM42?
How do you guys like the Primetime II?

I think it might be that the PCM41/42's became the guitarists Toy (Cheaper & MEO was installed when bought) while the PRIMETIME II's became the Synth set's piece (And as the PRIMETIME's MEO options were more expensive as in purchasing another unit = PT II MEO, so....... maybe it wasn't really required!
Certainly looked that way in the 80's UK
PRIMETIME 95 & 97 Ace a PCM42/41 no matter what as the AUX/In/Out Delay lines and CV gate/Click Controls add more function. Mod delay is mod delay - not PRIMETIME DELAY!
