Do Beard MA's sound better with Beard cones or Quartermans? OR what is your favorite set up for your MA?

I am looking at a 2 year old MA 8 (haven't actually played it yet) and having scanned a lot of threads I have gotten the impression that the quartermans are preferred but those were older threads. If my name were on an expensive guitar I would put in the best sounding cone unless of course there were some contractual  or consistency issues. I also don't want to frame this too those MA owners out there... what set up are you using and have you tried others? While I am at it...any issues that I should know about?
