    Yes, there are conflicting statements. Mike posted a correction on YouTube. However another Ham contacted Flex and they said they are identical and that the website is wrong. So idk. Both look great though.

    Too much comment on the Maestro. Who needs one? Any of the Signature Series works well with a laptop and is the finest radio you can get for the money. The noise floor is amazingly low and both reception and transmission are distortion free. During the year they come out with new software updates and it is like getting a new, better radio. Flex has been making radios for the government for years and has developed the great software programs that make Flex famous. As the knowledge of software increases, true SDR can progress and we will see our Flex Signature radios get better. I have bought many radios and they have been excellent radios for their time but Flex is more like an investment that can increase in value over the years... My 6500 is a much better radio now that it was when I bought it and I have faith that there will be further improvement as the knowledge base grows. That cannot be said about any of my Kenwood, Yaesu or Icom radios...all of which were once among the best available.

    There are two production series of Maestro.

    The original is called Maestro A by FlexRadio and the current production is called Maestro B.

    Maestro B and the 6400M/6600M models have the same display.

    The other A to B version change is the power button location. On the original A version it was on the top.

    Hope that information helps.
