Default P3B experiences?

Has anyone built and/or had the opportunity to listen to Rod Elliot's P3B? I'd be most interested to hear what you think.

Thanks.

Is there any difference? From what I saw, P3B is just P3A with the bias increased.

The only differences I could read about were the use of heatsinking (including VAS and drivers, not normally done for P3A), and a larger, choke-filtered power supply.

I recently finished a P3B and have previously built a P3A. This blog page has some "listening impressions" (of sorts) at the bottom: Audio Projects Class-A Power Amplifier Mk II
Cheers.
