Has anyone got a chance to compare 280 with 181?

Hi there! Is there any difference between FE and non-FE versions?
The difference between v280 and v280FE lies in the back panel and pre-gain switch.
The v280 has pre-gain switches arranged separately between the left and right XLR and RCA terminals, and has gains of -12, -6, +6, +12.
The FE has pre-gain switches grouped on the right side and has gains of -18, -6, +6, +18.
(Drop sells both v280 and FE, so it's easy to understand by comparing the back photos of each.)
The new generation violectric amplifiers have gains of -18, -6, + 6, +18, so the FE seems to have been given the same choice.
