Heres a quick breakdown:

Both Presses Have A Digital Timer

The Phoenix has digital temperature and the HT 600 has an adjustable thermostat.

The Phoenix has an automatic opening feature.

The HT 600 has a pressure adjustment in back of the unit, the Phoenix has over center pressure adjustment.

The Ht 600 opens up approximately 70 degrees, the Phoenix approximately 65 degrees.

The Phoenix accomodates items up to 1 inch thick, the HT 600 up to 5/8" thick.

The Phoenix has an upper floating platen, the HT 600 has a lower floating platen.

Both presses offer a lifetime warranty on the Heating Element.

The Phoenix offers the ability to interchange platens, not real sure if the HT 600 does or not?

The Phoenix has a magnetic assisted lockdown.

The Phoenix' upper platen is teflon coated, the HT 600 to my knowledge is not.

The HT 600 sells for approximately $1100 and the Phoenix 16 x 20 for $1300.

Hope this helps:)

I dont know about Pheonix Phire 16x20, but I wouldnt recommend Hix product... I had bad exerience with the Swingman20d 16" x 20" and the costumer services.

Both Hix and Stahl's (Hotronix/Phoenix) produce excellent machines and provide very good customer service. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase either brand.
