Question What's the difference between old Roland Street Cube vs New?

Both street cubes.
They pretty much look the same and all the controls are same except that the old one has Roland logo while the new one says CUBE.
Also, on the back label, old one has CUBE-ST and new has CUBE-STA.
Anyone tried both?

My guess is the addition of the "A" is just to indicate the slight revision in the logo so the amp can be more closely associated to it's larger version, the Cube EX.

I owned the smaller Cube Street and now have the Cube EX. They are both high quality amps that are excellent performers. The Cube Street and Cube EX are both pricey, but they are worth the cost. I've used the Cube Street for small gigs and backyard weddings and the Cube EX can hold it's own in much larger gigs.

Thank you for the reply.
I compared them and the older version on the left sounds louder/hotter at the same volume than the new one.
I also bought 12v to 9v and 5v to 9v adapters to use them with batteries and USB ports.
I don't need two of them so trying to figure out which one is better.
Not sure if it's easy to see in the picture but the older version one is missing the entire battery compartment on the back.

Thumbs up Now I have triplets...

Funny how things work.
I was keeping eyes open for EX model but another street cube found me.

Now, I can have one street cube in every room.
However, practice time doesn't multiply like that.
