Well, honestly I'm not sure there's -that- big of a difference. When I got my Ovation, I was looking for the traditional round sound hole, but it was purely an asthetic choice...I just thought they looked nicer. Now I actually ended up with the multi-sound hole...a CC-257 Celebrity Deluxe. I had found her at a local shop that I don't normally go to...I was passing by so I figured wtf. She was used, but -absolutly mint-...no scratches, no scuffs, not even a sign of fretware. As it turns out some guy had bought it new about 4 months previous to learn how to play, got frustrated and just sold it for whatever they'd give him for it. Anyways, they were going for $519 new at Guitar Centers...I picked it up for $250 :-)
Now really, every other Ovation I've played has been a traditional sound hole and I haven't noticed that much of a difference, if any in sound at all. I mean, basically it sounds like an Ovation :-) As an acoustic it's got that "classic Ovation sound" and plugged in...what can I say...she's simply lovely! She's what Ovations are all about...great tone thru an amp and you really have to go out of your way to get it to feedback. They're just amazing guitars in my opinion :-)
The only thing I can really suggest is go to your local Ovation dealer and try one of each and see if you can hear a difference...I really didn't.
Not sure if that was much help or not, but good luck!
