The black face uses low noise fet's and the "silver" discrete transistors. Both are desireable pieces.

The retifiers are different in the PS.

Bob O. can get more detailed as per sound. I never had them side by side for comparison..just one vintage at a time.

Just curious why a purple audio over the real thing? Wouldn't the original have the added advantage of a better resale value?
