Thank You very much for your reply! So if I understand correct, TK II also has D-programm inside, and D+ is available only with Analyst or Maestro modules?

Hello.

Well u are right,they are the same outside, but u can see the diffrence only on the eproms between TK 1 ore 2

Yes it is possible to turn up the speed
and will increase the strenght, i think +50 elo is no problem
Normally in the TK is the D programm from Kaplan
Even beter is the D+ programm,plays much better then D programm.
I have TK 1 and 2 , but personally i like more the style of TK 1
I have a Corona on 8mhz with D programm and a D++ and D+ in a Galileo on 16mhz
The only problem is that the Kaplan programms needs time, from 1 minut a move they will play ok

Goodluck with ure search,keep UK and ebay Germany in ure eye they appear there so now and then.

Kind regards,Hans

Hi all, I know it is nearly to impossible that somebody will sell this device but if this lucky accident will take a part - I have 2 questions:

1) how to be sure that its TK II and not simple TK - all pictures/photos I'd seen in web are identical (?!) ;

2) is it possible to tune/speed up its CPU to 10Mhz (and could this action give a real strength perfomance, about +50 ELO-points or more) ?

THX in advance!
