Looks great. I don't mind the change in dust cap color but I'd like to have a matching set across the front. Did they change the dust caps on the new m80's as well?

I'd love to have some m80's with magnetic grills too...

Hi Terzaghi,

Everything in our line now has aluminum dust caps and magnetic grilles. The only exception being the in-wall products. They will remain with grille pins because the access to the screws for tightening the arms wall are in the female grille plugs.

I think you pay a 20% premium for Rosewood. There is another 20% premium for a piano finish if you select that. Having bought Rosewood before and "attempted" my hand at piano finishing, I'm surprised they only charge a 20%.



I'm not sure that is accurate at least in the case of the VP180 example above.


What's not accurate? My math is pretty close, so clarify what you disagree with.

VP180 in real wood finish is $940. Rosewood is an additional $180 (roughly 19%) A piano finish is an additional $194 (roughly 20%)

My pre-order price was $1115.17 + GST. Hope this helps.

You didn't take into account going from $695 - $940. The premium for rosewood in piano finish from the stock vinyl (or boston cherry as in this case) is much higher than 40% (20%+20% as you state) . In total it is more like a 60% premium. Your starting point has to be the base price or MSRP of $695 in this case when looking at the premium paid for upgrading to a different finish.

i placed my order for:
1 - VP180v3 center w/dual speaker terminals
1 - pair M80v2 towers

both in the standard boston cherry finishes. i hope to find out in a day or two how much longer the order will take to ship because of the option to the center channel.

once i get them i'll do a full review for the entire front 3.
