Hello all

What is the differences between essence MK1 and MK2?

I know the MK2 supports beolink Multiroom but are there any other obvious way to identify if one is a MK2?

MKI just says Essence. MKII says Essence MKII if I recall correctly. 

Ah, you know... A little B&O here, a little there

When Mark 1 was released it was priced with wheelie remote in the box.

When Mark 2 was released the wheelie remote was removed from packing and sold as optional extra.

Regards

Thanks all

Don't know about anyone else but I think the table remote would look amazing wall mounted. I think it would look so smart like a panel on the wall

The essence controller is removable from the table remote stand piece. So if you had the table remote you can use it elsewhere.
