Does a red dot on top of a Ekos mean Mk 1?

Not necessarily, MK1s that were upgraded at the factory did not get a dot change.

Original 1978 Fluted Afromosia LP12, Ekos 2, Lyra Kleos SL and lots of other stuff from the 70's that still work fine.

RE: Red dot
And quite a few early Mark IIs still had the red dot.

[ The change in dot colour around that time was possibly coincidental rather than being any attempt to distinguish the arm varients ...either that or they ran out of the new silver dots and had to revert to red for a while Big Grin ]

RE: Red dot
It means it is not a silver dot that is about as much as you can know for certain!!
