Although the TT-303 V2, on review here, is both cosmetically and functionally different to the first version, the version labelling is somewhat confusing. Hence the reason that we’re referring to the different hardware iterations as MkI and MkII in the main review.
The main point of confusion is the fact that the first Cyclone TT-303 was updated with a new OS during its lifecycle - OS V2 - and as such you would see earlier references to the TT-303 V2. Following this logic, the new TT-303 should be V3. Yes - its confusing!
Ultimately, the latest TT-303, whilst being less charming – or copyright infringing – in its looks, is better in the vast majority of areas.
