    What is the difference between the SDA2 and the 2B? Good luck with your sale. I like the sound of my SDA2's. Peace. D

    Not sure of all the differences. You can probably find your answer here:

    They do indeed look quite nice, what all upgrades do you have in them? Someone needs to snatch these up.

    Those are SDA 2Bs, but not studios. The studio version does not have any exposed wood, it's an all black speaker clad in a veneer that has a woodgrain texture to it. I own a pair of studios and they sound phenomenal. I am sure that these do, too!
    If you were closer I might pick these up as a back up pair, very nice speakers . . .
    SDA 2Bs are an AWESOME speaker

    I thought studios came only in black too. Are those the latest version of the 2A?

    Mine look exactly like those but a darker walnut they are pin blade and the guy I bought them from said they were 2B Studios and a couple of members identified them as 2B studios are you sure they were only offered in black?

    I'm 99% sure the "studio" label is designated for the all black venere cladding

    Semantics at this point, I think the OP has a great speaker for sale. They look very clean, I like that finish

    The studio version does not have any exposed wood

    Those are Studio 2B's in wood grain vinyl.

    You're too far away... I'm surprised they haven't sold yet either.

    Your local pick up only is limiting the field.

    I'd love to have them, but too far away. Seems nobody remotely local to me ever has any for sale.
