Which changes have been made to the RI-101 going from Mk.I to Mk.II?
- Output stage configuration was optimised, allowing a higher current flow (a bit more Class A)
- Major update to the digital power supply, allowing much better headroom generally, especially with the DAC or DAC/Streamer option.
- General board level layout optimisations resulting in shorter signal paths, thicker and wider supply tracks, better grounding etc.
- Transformer design optimisation.
