Thank you Peter for these details.

> In 2002 Sound Devices changed the output driver of the MixPre to an 
active-balanced topology from impedance-balanced to make it more 
compatible with some camcorders. According to the old Sound Devices 
Press release there is a 6db signal loss when the output is 
unbalanced. This dos not occur with the original MixPre. At least 
initially Shure stuck with the original configuration, but I don't 
know if that is still the case. The original MixPre's and FP24s were 
identical, then they diverged slightly on this and the color of some 
of the LEDs.
