There were no models added or removed
from the lineup for 1998, but there was a significant change.
The R600 was reengineered, and dubbed the Red Line Series II.
Although the control layout and functionality was the same as the
original, the Series II benefited from the new HT 600 watt stereo amp,
as well as new compressor and new noise gate. Cosmetically, the
R600 was now sporting red anodized aluminum knobs, and the Duratuff-covered
rack was included. Despite the changes to the Series II, it
remained priced the same as the original, at $569.
