I purchased a new Line 6 Spider Valve HD 100 last week with the knowledge that it was the latest and greatest head around, only to discover that the MKii had replaced it a while ago.

 

Could someone please tell me how long ago was the upgrade available on the market. I need to go to the music store which sold this amp to me and get them to replace it with the newer mkii.

some people prefer the MKI, but its all personal taste... the MKI can certainly be a good deal depending on the price...

but the MKII offers updates etc.. that you can't get on the MKI.

if the price is the same i'd probably want the MKII

One major disadvantage of the MK1 is the overheat problem: 


Some MK1's will overheat and go into a resetloop. As far as I know the MK2 does not have that problem.
