So I own two MT-32 now... both are of the "old" variety... the one I bought recently I wanted to sell with some profit but _of_course_ it can't be that easy, beacause I discovered it has different motherboard than the one I had for few years now...

Old one is SN #871290 it has motherboard is 79377310 01
the one I bought last week is SN #849553 motherboard is 79377310 00

Obvious difference is the main chip.

Also the lower SN one has socketed EPROMs (fw v.1.07, right?) while the higher SN one has them soldered on the PCB (how to check fw version?).

Which one is better?

You can check the ROM version with a key sequence and then powering on. See here:

Thanks! I forgot about this guide - I discovered it some time ago, but I never found time to watch the whole of it 😁
