What does it mean by VaSSallo speakers? I've seen this term before, but I haven't seen an explanation.

When I check the Products page and go through all of the options, I see nothing about VaSSallo. Is it just another designation for the wood cabinets?

If I go to the auction page, currently on page 2, there are some M80's listed as, "M80 v3 VaSSallo Speakers - Real Wood Cherry With Black Grilles".

When I google for VaSallo, it comes up with a lot of different people with this name. I'm assuming it's named after someone that Ian knows, or a company by this name.

Here's a link for a definition I should have found before.

But this still begs the question. Are all of the wooden boxes a VaSSallo speaker, or is it just certain ones?

Dang. Is it Friday yet? Waiting to get paid so I can order my first VaSSallo speaker. Replacing center channel VP100 in/on wall with M2 VaSSallo in Cinnamon Oak. Then another lengthy period for it to ship. I've had my VP100 listed in auction for about 3 weeks now. (Currently the 1st item on Auction page, after clicking on "Products For Sale"). I think the highest bid I've had is $3.00.

Yeah, thanks, I've learned that lesson. I did lower it today from $50 to $45 though. I'm not going any lower than that.

It's FRIDAY! Yeah. I ordered my new center. A single M2 in VaSSallo Cinnamon Oak in simi-gloss finish with metal bracket. I noticed the e-mail and printable description of my order mentioned Oak finish, but nothing about Cinnamon or simi-gloss, so I hope they get the order right. I imagine they have that info from the order, and it just doesn't get printed on the feed back notices.

It looks like it would be ok to turn the bracket upside down from what the picture shows, so that I can angle it upwards a bit from under the TV. Now, I've got to repair the hole made by the VP100 in/on wall. I saved the piece I cut out. It's a short wall that's currently exposed on the back side from downstairs, where I can install 3 short studs. Center and each end to make installing the cut-out easier. It also looks like I'll have to remove the plate and box for the subwoofer because it's directly in the way for a stud. I need to install it where the subwoofer is anyway off to the side of the room.
