UA LA-610 original vs MK II

Well? I'm not sure what improvements the Mk II is supposed to offer, apart from a new splash of paint on the front panel.

Love the 2-610 I already own, but can anyone offer an A/B of the various LA-610s offered over time? I rented the Mk II last week for a project and the results were very pleasing, but if there is a variation of the LA-610 that is considered 'the benchmark' i'd like to know before I part with my cash.

There's qute a few variations of the 610 and three of the LA-610 alone. I don't have time to type it all out again right now but I've listed them in a couple GS threads before. You might be able to search them.
The best I've been able to put together (based on feedback from many people) is that the MKII is slightly brighter than the MKI. I would not say that anyone has reported any sonic improvements (in fact, some people prefer the older, discontinued M610 and 2-610 with the 6072 outputs) but I don't think that any of the 610s are bad and you should be able to get a great sound from any of them. I do notice that used LA-610 MKIs are very cheap so, if you don't need the ability to bypass the comp, it's not a bad way to go.
