Default Need help determining type of Audiostatics

I have bought a set of Audiostatic loudspeakers that have no serial numbers. According to the seller, who inherited these from a family member, they where bought directly from Audiostatic in 2008.
They sound very good and with no loss in efficiency. In comparison to the ES 100’s I have, they have more detail and bass.

This morning I opened them up to look at the electronics. Please see attached photo’s.
My guess is that these are DCM 5 speakers, based on the fact that I count 5 transformers (4 big, 1 small for low frequency boost).
Can anyone confirm my assumption or tell me what model/type these speakers are? What could be the reason for not having serial numbers?

It sure looks like a DCM5, with the added auto-transformer and resistor/capacitor network for LF equalization. You can see images in forum of DCM5 where the label obviously was from a DCI. Not sure why your serial number was not filled in.

Thank you Bolserst for confirming and also the link and pics!
I think it's a peculiar way of labeling.. Making an M out of an I by hand. I will leave it the way it is
