    I recently tried a brand new Yamaha THR10 ii and really liked it, so I've been researching. I've seen some conflicting information about whether the new series has all new voicings, or whether it merely contains the voicings of the 10, 10C, and 10X combined. Official Yamaha promo material perhaps implies the latter, but it's not clear.

    Has anyone here A/B'd MK1 and MK2 versions? If so, can the new unit dial in the same tones as the first version?

    I love my THR10C but even the 5 voicings are too many for me. I never use the Blues Junior setting and don’t understand why they used that amp instead of a Mesa Boogie for example.

    I also don’t bother with software tweaks to the emulations because I’m lazy.

    If I didn’t already have my Yamaha THR10C I would get the new one with wireless capability.

    Sorry, I know I didn’t answer your question. I did not A/B the new version.

    I appreciate the response anyway. I tried a new THR10 ii recently, and my first impressions were very positive, but I'd really like to find out if there's much difference between MK1 and MK2 strictly in terms of tone. I understand all of the other differences in features. THR10 is obviously a known quantity, but the MK2 is so new, I'd hate to buy one only to discover the earlier version sounds better. Not an impossible scenario.
