I have a question regarding the audio i/o specs on the analog heat mk1 vs mk2
heat Mk1: balanced ins/outs: +22 dBu peak
heat Mk2: balanced ins/outs: +19 dBu peak
Anybody own both units/use them extensively to notice anything different in the input/output stages because of this 3 dBu difference?
Does this mean the mk1 unit can actually take a stronger signal before distorting vs the mk2? Seems interesting that the audio specs are worse on the mk2 (at least this is what it seems like)
Currently in the market for an Analog Heat and don’t know if i can justify the extra $$$ for the mk2 when on paper it looks like the mk1 has better audio specifications.
Perhaps in use the mk2 sounds clearer/deals with line level signals with less noise due to a refined input and output stage?
