Well, the MD-3 board was different - in fact there were two versions and
manufacturers of that - and the MD-5/10/nn was yet different again. But
any or all would fit in the same case. The late MD-2 had a detachable
power cord, as did the MD-3. So did the MD-5/10/nn, but they also had a
different - higher wattage - power supply to handle the HD.
