Heritage Audio 8173/1073 vs others

I am planning on buying an 8 channel rack to fill with Neve 80 series style modules. My current plan is to buy the Heritage Frame 8 and Heritage 8173's to fill it. Seems to be the best bang for the buck with this kind of pre/eq. My main question and concern is the fact that these modules are priced about $1k below the comparable BAE modules with the same type of EQ. Does anyone have experience with these Heritage modules? Does anyone know why they can be had so much cheaper than the options? Am I sacrificing build quality or sonic quality by going with the Heritage rather than the BAE? Any experience that you can share would be greatly appreciated. I can't find many user accounts of the Heritage modules on here, mainly just the 500 series stuff.
