Actually I've seen pictures of that 1581 prototype before. German 64'er
magazine did a test of this device, and IIRC they complained that the
new DOS still can't handle more than 170k per REL file. I never tried
it, but I think the final 1581 can make full disk REL files by the use
of the new super side sector. The strange 4 pin mini DIN power connector
was also disliked very much by 64'er. Don't know if CBM changed it
because of their complaint in the final design ;-)
