    Quick question on 6600 !

    This one is my uncle's 6600 and it was boght from the USA I think in 1994 or 1995 and I noticed that the writing is different on this one than all the others 6600 on this at the bottom of the display it writes "ELECTRO LUMINESCENCE" and on the others "ILLUMINATOR" why is that ?



    That is how it looks now after I repainted the letters and gave it a very good cleaning !

    Nice job on the letters!

    Casio also put 'Fox Fire' on some of these. I think at one time the generally accepted knowledge was that the 'Fox Fire' models were the Asia models and the 'Illuminator' and 'Electro Luminescence' were for export. Also that the 'Illuminator' models came after the EL models. I'm not sure if this holds up anymore.

    For certain models it holds up - yours looks to be a DW-6600-1V from 1994 - the DW-6600E-2V from 1996 has 'Illuminator' on it. But the DW-6600 is a favorite base model for collaboration issues so all bets are off, IMO. Others here may know better; I'm more focused on the DW5k models.

    Cheers, Greg
