I'm curious what contributors might prefer given the preferred choice of one of these?

Both are quality "intermediate" instruments. Making the pads seal well is more important than selecting between the two models. The Esprit tunes very well at A=440 with a bigger volume mouthpiece (like the Vandoren 13-series).

Esprit have better tone quality in my opinion.
