Yamaha YAS 62 versus YAS 82Z

I presently own YAS-32E and very soon I am going to buy a new professional horn.
I tried YAS-62 and YAS-82. Both sounded very close to eachother but there is a significant price difference between both. Please guide me which one is better ? I could not justify the higher price of YAS-82Z. May be, I am missing some thing here.
Please help. 

By the way, I tried Selmer Reference 54 (brand new) and found that the screw head on a link very close to the thumb rest had a sharp burr and I almost cut my thumb. Did not expect such poor craftmanship on such an expensive horn....

    If you like your sound with the less expensive horn as much as with the more expensive one, why not?
