i'm flattered that you remembered about my system 100 and 700 stuff.
 actually, i got a phone call from this dealer guy who told me he heard i had
some equipment and he convinced me to sell it all to him for $500.  just
kidding!  yeah, i've still got 'em and always will but i've been keeping a
low profile since my posts usually go *unappreciated*.  

one major difference i mentioned before were the filter modules in the 2
systems.  the 100m model 121 has cv control over cutoff but the filter's
basically a lpf with a 3 position hpf, like that on the 106.  on the other
hand, there are at least 2 vcfs on the 700.  one has a switchable filter -
either lp, bp, or hp (#703d).  the other's got JUST a LP, but also has VC
resonance (#703g).  otherwise, the 2 are a bit similar in function, the 700
does sound a lot fatter to me, but i usually prefer the 100m for smaller
sounds anyway.  one things for sure - they packed a lot of features in each
100m module.  the 700 modules were usually designed for only one function. 

as for my not posting sooner, i've kind of gotten wrapped up with making
music (yeah, for a change) so i havent had the time i wanted to respond to
the initial post on the topic.


ps. the tr-929 thing was just a joke.
