You can't tell by looking at the PCB. It's all based in the circuitry.

The difference you are seeing are just styles of PCB. One is the older with leads on the resistors and the newer contact style. I don't know the technical names of either style.

Through hole is the older style and the newer style is surface mount or smt.
Was lacking a decent sig. Still is.

so smt will be machined assembly ? it would also be difficult to mod these type of boards
wouldn't it
