My Comments
I've been wanting to retire the U-20 for some time now, but I also wanted to get a U-220 at the right price. SO I waited and finally one came my way. I quickly found there are some minor differences between the U-220 and the U-20. The first is fairly obvious, a second set of direct outputs. The other is the way the velocity for each tone is set, in the U-20 it is a range between the low note and the hight note set by you. In the U220 it is set by a threshold and sounds either below or above the threshold.

2016: Sitting in rack 2 with the Orchestra and Ethnic cards inserted. The sounds are starting to diverge a bit from the U-20.
