Audio Aero Capitole 24/192 vs the MKII version cdp


Anyone know the difference between the original Capitole and the more recent MKII version?Considering an upgrade via the used marketplace and can not find any specifics as to the difference on thier web site and also havn't seen any comments as to how differently the 2 sound.
Understand that there is also a MKIII version now. Thanks in advance!Ted

Thanks for responding.As with many,$ is a limitation,and I almost purchased the Prima,But decided to hold off on the cdp for now. When the time is right though,I'll probably go w/the MkII.
I have had it for a few years. The latest version has an analog passthru which is really good. In addition to using it as a Cd player, I run my satellite feed with toslink and I run my DVD player through coax. Being able to run my tuner through the passthru would be great and it would save me a swithcbox or a pre.

The Mark II certainly does not need a pre as it is very true to the original intent of the producer/mixer of the CD. When you get a really poorly done CD the Mark II will show it so much that some of my CDs are now relegated to my car. There are multiple versions or the Mark II which can be itentified by the serial number. The very first Mark II players had a defective chip and these can be itentified by chips version p4 or earlier. Mine was upgraded to a p6.5chip with a new circuit board and it runs really well.

One of the best things about the Mark II is that it is somewhat futureproof as even an older unit can be upgraded to even include the analog passthru with a new circuit board.

It is worth the wait. This would be the very last component in my system that I could part with.
mine worked perfect with a p4 chip anything previous to the p4 did have problems definitely
How do you know what chip it have (I'm thinking about buying used one).
Does it display it somehow ?
Or just base on Serial number ?
Mine was one of the first p4 releases and it did give me some problems. I called Globe and after checking the serial number they were somewhat helpful with the upgrade even though I bought it here on Audiogon. The serial number will have a sequencial number and it will also show the year it was manufactured. If my information is correct, if the serial number is 0207/318 then it was made in July of 2002 which is when the P4 chips started getting their acts together.
