    If you had to choose, and why. I can assemble the 700 rig for about the cost of the MB if I buy used, so price is no issue.

    No experience with the combo, but had a 700rb and loved it.

    I personally prefer the non-micro GK heads to their MB series offerings. They sound fuller and weightier to me, if that makes sense. I don't really think you can go wrong with that set of options though.

  5. The MB212 II is an awesome light combo, 500 watts and two 12" NEO speakers. But it is maxed out unless you want to add the powered extension cabs (MBP) which are only about $50 cheaper.

    700RB II and one 212 will get a lot done, but you can add a second 212 for total of four 12" with ~500 watts. Much louder than two ;).

    If you loved the 700RB, then getting an 700RB-II is a no-brainer. Unless there's an even higher satisfaction level than "loved it", why complicate the decision unnecessarily?

    While combos can come in handy and do have their uses, I've personally never encountered a combo amp that could compete straight up against its amp head + cab counterpart of equivalent rating.
