The 5150 offered two input jacks, but the 5150 II only has one (Peavey and Edward did this for some reason or another; perhaps because of lack of room on the amp's front? Both models have virtually the same rugged casings; so if you view each one "from the knobs up", you can easily mistake the two for each other.
That last statement can apply to their lead channel sound, as well.
Sorry, folks; I cannot tell any difference between the two. In fact, it's rather good; the first 5150 amp absolutely cranked with a badass, ball-shaking, tear-your-head-off-and-shit-down-your neck tone that most players search for all their lives.
I ask, why bother purchasing the II if there's no tonal differences or improvements?
If you own neither one, on the other hand, go with the II; you'll never know when you might want a bit more governance over your tone.
This amp rates a solid 8.5 on a scale of one to ten in my book.

The 5150 featured a three-band EQ, whereas the 5150 II has two such EQ's (one each for the rhythm and lead channels) for better fine-tuning.
There are separate Resonance and Presence controls for the rhythm and lead channels on the newer model, while the previous possessed only one set of such controls.
