Like I said, I WILL be ordering from the Factory Outlet without hesitation. I just found it interesting and you know what they say..."Inquiry minds want to know", or something like that.

I just want to stress that the Factory Outlet is primarily there to handle minor cosmetic defects and you ARE going to get visible (but generally very small) dings and marks on the products some times. My QS8s did arrive with noticeable marks on them (like someone had pushed a thumbnail hard into one corner), although you couldn't see the marks from more than a couple of feet away.

Just don't want anyone to be disappointed...

BTW, John is right - the speakers have to pass a distance test, meaning from a normal viewing position would you be able to see the flaw. If yes, we part the cabinet out. But you can see it if you are looking for it.

Regarding the discount if you find the blemish, I can suddenly see people scratching up their speakers and calling in for two percent! Shudder!

Good Point, John. After having my M60s for a couple of weeks, the light fell on one just right, and I noticed a flaw ithat occured in the production of the vinyl itself. There was an identical mark on each one, abeit in a different location. the marks were so slight that no one would ever notice unless they were looking for them, and the light was just right. So, slight flaws CAN be found. However, I think I should emphasize the word "SLIGHT."

I had the pleasure of meeting Amie for the first time earlier this month. She is an absolute delight to talk to. The one word that consistently comes to mind when I think of her is "CLASS".
