You knew I'd vote for the real mirror finish, didn't you?

The best I can do is give a mental picture of one. The perfect mirrored speaker would not be for HT use because of the reflections obviously, but for a stereo music setup. The M3 would probably be perfect for this, either on-wall, or bookshelf. It should cover 100% of the visible parts of the speaker case, preferably with rounded corners and edges that are of the same silvery, real mirror finish.

I know this is, more than likely, just wishful thinking, and don't expect to ever see such a thing.

Other than polished aluminum, I don't know how to accomplish such a thing. Anybody have any ideas for materials to use? Please don't say, "Just cover it in tin foil".

Why not go for a transparent mirror effect - like the Predator camoflauge?

Then they wouldn't be shiny.

With the mention of the active/powered bookshelf "studio" models, is the response and crossover going to be tweaked from its passive brothers? Geared towards near field listening. For example a taper in the treble response because of this.

BlueJays1,

The Studio Monitor active versions will have options available via a multi position switch for various tailorings needed during the recording process. We are considering having the switch located on just one of the speakers but it would adjust both speakers simultaneously; sort of a master/slave arrangement.

I will say that after today's newsletter, it does draw me back to the cool QS wall mount with built in connector for the speaker signal.

I wish I could "retro-fit" that on to my first pair of QS8s... Very cool.
