I've been fortunate enough to have tried quite a range of different Akai's over the years, and my impression was that it all changed from the XL series onwards.

But then, although they look very similar, the innards are very different from anything Akai had used before. Which I thought explained the sound..

Thats just my 2 bpm's worth though
