All upgrades were by the customers choice. Individual selection was offered on all the possible upgrades, so just because a person got the powerboss upgrade doesn't mean anything else was neccesarily done to the unit.

Thanks for the responses. Still not sure then if it is actually a mk II upgraded to powerboss status or an mk I upgraded to powerboss status. Seems to be conficting opinions. I sold the MK II i had to a friend cause he liked it so much and i wish i wouldnt have. So basically i have created this mess for myself anyways. Another move i made was selling my paradigm studio 100v.2's to a friend as well. I replaced those with a pair of VMPS tower 2's. Which i couldnt be happier with that move. So what i have for a system at the moment is:
Aragon 4004 MK II
Audible Illusions L1
Sansuai TU 717
Toshiba dvd/cd(which isnt working for 2 channel listening)
VMPS Tower 2's
Rat Shack Fusion IC's
Acoustic Research 12 Guage
Salamander synergy 40 audio rack
As you can tell from my setup i bascially like classic rock. But i should have never sold my icon mk II.
Well not sure if it was the mark 2 upgrade or not. I recieved the player today and the upgrades are as follows:
1)Laser pick-up assembly ICN/TRCT/ARIA...........151.00
2)Spindle motor SJGDRF310T-4..................... 27.00
3)HDCD/20-bit upgrade assembly...................450.00
Also on the front of the player there is a sticker on the window that says [HDCD]
These upgrades were done in august of 1996.
There is also another service report from 1993:
1)Replaced central processor.......................40.00
2)Update kit(updated the player)...............No Charge
To me it seems as if maybe the player was updated to icon mk 2 in 1993 and upgraded to powerboss in 1996.But the icon mk 2 i use to own had a detachable power cord or so i think and also had the icon mk 2 marked on the front.Where as this player doesnt have a detachable power cord and no mk 2 markings on it whatsoever.
Does anyone have any thoughts on what this player might be. Is it an icon mk1 upgraded to a icon mk2 with powerboss upgrade? Or is it an icon mk1 with just the powerboss upgrade?
Any comments appreciated
