What is meant exactly by the description 'more musical'?
It means that the listener is hearing what they think music should sound like.  
Bass- at what frequency does it change from sounding like a string to just a low tone?

Butler Audio amplifier
I was interested in purchasing the TDB 2250 in 2021.  Emailed Butler and found out it was no longer available.  If you buy used you might want to ask Butler if they will still service the unit, if necessary.  Just a thought.

Don't overlook the Willsenton R300B integrated.  I have it and like it very much.  It's not just good for the price.  It's really good.  
Ordered a Willsenton R300
@musiclover1 and charles1dad:  My concerns as to whether the R300 would match well with my JM Reynaud Offrande Supreme v.1 speakers turned out to groundless.  What I'm hearing is a warm, palpable presentation with no sense of fatigue whatsoever.  ... 
Ordered a Willsenton R300
My reason for buying this amp from Amazon was solely down to the ease of return.  For me that outweighed the higher cost.  I really wasn't certain if it would be a good fit with my speakers or if I'd like the 300B sound.

I’ve heard both speakers.  In both instances I was at shows so not ideal listening environments. I heard the Razz speakers at the NYC  audio show this past September and the Source Point 10 speakers 10 days ago.  Based strictly on those experience... 
I had the opportunity to hear this amp at the Capital Audio Fest last weekend.  Of course when you’re listening to a system with unfamiliar components it can be hard to isolate how an amp sounds.  I do know that what I heard sounded great.  The ba...

@grislybutter:  According to the MoFi guys I spoke to at CAF last weekend the speakers won’t be available until next month.  None of their dealers have received their first deliveries of stock yet.  
Downward firing speaker port and domestic issues
I'm in the same situation.  I live in a rented apartment with neighbors all around.  I'd avoid a down-firing floorstander.  You might be better off with front-firing standmounted speakers decoupled from the floor.  If the room and the speaker allo...

It was the Heretic AD612.  What a difference.  I don't like using the term "musical" when describing a speaker's sound but it truly fits.  But this speaker is much more expensive than the SP 10 so it's not really fair.
