Differences between Dm6 Nitro and Nitro. Which is better for same price?

What are the main differences between the DM6 Nitro and the Nitro?

Nitro: https://www.amazon.com/Alesis-Nitro-K... for 299

Dm6 Nitro: https://www.amazon.com/Alesis-Nitro-K... for 299

Which is better for the price? And what are the main differences? I want a usb connection, midi connectors, and aux ports... Thx guys!

P.S: I was also looking at the Alesis Forge Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BDMKH2Y?... for 399.

I can afford this for 399 and its looks like a major upgrade. Will this be the a great match for me?? Thanks again

P.P.S. are the pads on these metal? I hope so!

  • So what would be the difference between the Nitro and the DM6 Nitro?

    Do the cymbals have a choke effect on the DM6 Nitro?

    Aside from the tubing, any other major differences?
