audio research REF 210 monoblocks vs REF 150

Hi fellow inmates ,

My sister whose based there in the USA is trying to decide if she's getting a REF 150 or at almost similar price the REF 210 monoblocks. Her current speakers are the Harbeth SHL 5 Super Plus . Her source will be the VPI Aries 3 w/ 3D tonearm w/ VAS Nova Phono Cart. Current Preamp is the vintage ARC SP11 Mk 1 , she already purchased the audio research BL1 ( converts single ended output signal to balance signal output ) . Her current amp is the ARC VS55 . In the future she plans to upgrade to a SP20 or if budget permits the REF5SE and REF Phono 2 SE .
Any fellow inmates who have compared / audition these amps please chime in . Here's a photo of her system.

Thanks in advance ,
