    I have done a search and can't find out the diff. Is it in power or EQ? Is a Series I with an updated power section the same as a series II? Thanks, Marc

    The differences are small. Near the end of the Clarus series I model run, there were changes to the power amp that resulted in just a bit more headroom, so you may find that difference between most of the series I and the series II amps.

    The series II added two features:
    - a return level control for the effects loop
    - a switchable filter that can be either a high-pass filter or a notch filter

    The series I only offered a Clarus 1 or a Clarus 2R; the 1R and 2 were introduced with the series II models. The series I Clarus 2R sold for a significantly higher price as it had a few additional features (another 1/4" input), all of which I cannot recall. I can look it up in old backup files if needed.
