    I really want this combo and was wondering what the differences are besides the looks?

    I can get a used first gen for $200 or the current gen for $450 new+shipped. Help me out here?

    I own the MB115 II which is adaptable to the GK MBP series powered cabinets thereby increasing your power from your lower powered combo.
     
  3. Hey, I've owned the first gen MB115 for nearly three years. Haven't really fallen in love with it. Horn hisses too loudly to use. Not enough volume for rock/jazz with drums. Mine just left on a warranty trip from Fla to NYC because it quit working. That said, if you can pick up a used MB115 for about $200, you may limit your future unhappiness. There seems to be very little real difference between the two. Be sure to check out the horn hissing issue before buying.
