Preferred Rig SB-101 or SR-150?

Is there any substantive reason to choose a
Hallicrafters SR-150 over a Heath SB101?

Both get solid reviews on the Internet.

The Halli uses 12DQ6B finals, the Heath 6146's.

I have some 6146's and have run rigs with them in
the past.  I think they generally sell for $20.

The 12DQ6B is a sweep tube but seems to be commonly
available and runs $4. - $9. from a quick Google

I am guessing that the 6146 is more rugged than the
sweep tube and there does not seem to be a significant
design power output difference between the rigs.

Anything else I should consider other than the finals?
