How to tell the difference between Aerial Acoustics Model 8 vs 8b

I will be auditioning a set of Aerial Model 8's and not sure if they are 8's or 8b's.  Is there an easy way to tell? I thought the 8b's had the longer front grill and the logo at the bottom.  Looking at images online has not been helpful.  

thanks in advance

They were 8b's. Long grill, gold logo/badge much lower on the front.  Same standard Model 8 serial number label on the binding post plate.  Appears the Aerial do not print a new model label for the 8b. 

I bought them, by the way. Sound and look amazing - rosewood.
