Question Identifying a CD94 Mk2?

Can anyone confirm how the Marantz CD94 Mk2 differs visually from the Mk1?

I believe that the Mk1 had a badge on the drawer saying something like "16bit / Z-filter" whereas the drawer on the Mk2 was plain, with no stick-on badge.

Also did the printed legend on the Mk2 actually say "CD94 Mk2" or just was the Mk2 bit never mentioned?

I hope someone has a Mk2 out there and can confirm one way or the other!

Cheers, Tosh.

Hi Tosh

The front panel legend (bottom left under the drawer) is:

"MARANTZ COMPACT DISK PLAYER CD-94II"

The rear panel label states:

"MODEL No. CD-94MK2"

Thanks Geoff - I thought something was amiss with this machine. I've taken its lid off and found only one plain vanilla TDA1514, which I now believe is the spec for the Mk1 - the Mk2 having a pair of single crowns?

Cheers, Tosh.

I have two CD-94s (not Mk2) and one has a TDA1541A, the other a TDA1541 (without A). But the one without A also has the Cosc 680 pF between pin 16 and 17. I believed it is necessary only for the A version for DEM oscillator. Any thoughts?
