MK4 was only sold in Japan

also the MK3 is a special version of the MK2 which was sold only in some countrys

there is a MK5G but the price for these are insane

Using the mk2 at home keeps you on the ball incase you have to use one in a club.. the mk5 is heaven though!

the only one which is worth to mention is the mk5 has no 0-point lock on his pitch.
But that is a good difference. It's the same on my M3D version, love it.
you love the 0-point lock? i kinda hate it when the right pitch level always seems to be very very close to that lock point :D

i've heard that its very easy to remove that 0-point lock from an mk2.. you basically just have to remove 2small plastic parts and a feather and the lock will be gone..

No you misunderstood, on the M3D the 0-point click is removed. I love when it's not there, because there are never problems with the pitch around 0 on these newer models.

You could pick up a 2nd hand pair for £300-£400, that was before all electrical goods prices went sky high.

I bought my M3D's back in 2001'ish I think it was. I remember it as normal prices (bought from new).
