    The Af used Cinemag OPT’s (and not 300B’s), whereas the Studio Jr. and the Studio B use the same custom transformers that Craig had made. Af sound is supposed to be drier (the driest of any EC amp I think - some really like this, some don’t) with slightly wider stage vs. Studio Jr./B if I recall correctly from what Marv has said in the Studio B and Jr. threads.

    Probably some minor differences in sound/topology with Studio Jr. Vs Studio B but I was always under the impression that they’re at the level of silent revisions, so they’re essentially the same amp, Craig just had leftover Studio Jr. OPT’s and Balancing Act style chassis and put them together to make Studio B. Again, at least that is my understanding.

    I have the original prototypes that are curved cabinets and have kept them even as other parts of my chain have changed. They’re currently hooked up to my home theater and I have to say they’re not going anywhere. I’d recommend the purchase.

    I happened to buy the first set of non-prototype curved cabinet BMR from Dennis and am never letting go of them either. The V2 have a Scanspeak woofer that’s one inch smaller than the version that @zerodeefex and I have, so take that into consideration.

    Ravi and my BMR cabinets have the drivers offset to the sides on each channel rather than straight down, like this FS ad, so another point to consider. (Unless Ravi’s are straight and I’m wrong)

    Price seems okay for 10/10.

    Even if you don't like the cabinet design you'd pay that much for drivers anyway and have functional speakers while you work on your preferred enclosures. I would buy these if I was local and then put them in a planet10hifi designed enclosure.

    Edit: or listen to them while building trio 15's and then transplant.
