With the delayed production of the MTi2 units I've been offered an MTi instead.
I've been told that the earlier MTi model is made with a much more sturdy metal body in the US, and was much more expensive, while the MTi2 is made to a price in China with a plastic body making it cheaper and more accessible to the masses. Apparently there are no other functional hardware differences and both units run Raven 3.xx and up.
The only caveat I've been told about is that you can't mix MTi and MTi2 in a 2 unit system. 2 x MTis is OK.
So what other issues will effect me using the earlier hardware?
I'll be using Windows 10 x64. And the beta Pro Tools version. I'm using PTHD 12.4

We have had multiple requests for some additional information on the original RAVEN MTi.

As someone who works on both systems, I can confidently say that they are both wonderful.

An HDMI to ThunderBolt is your best bet for MTi2 (http://www.apple.com/shop/product/HFQL2VC/A/moshi-mini-displayport-to-hdmi-adapter-4k?fnode=8b&fs=f%3Dadapter-hdmi%26fh%3D4595%252B45b0%252B3058), MTi-1 you would go with a DVI to Thunderbolt (http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MB570LL/B/mini-displayport-to-dvi-adapter?fnode=8b).
