Luc's Facebook Comments on our grille-on pictures of the new speaker led us to wonder . . . after you buy the new omnidirectional wonder, will you leave the grilles on or take them off to see all 11 drivers in their glory?

In general, I prefer "grills on" and leaving something to the imagination!

Although sometimes I admit I prefer to look at them naked, it's more practical to leave them on. Especially if little "paws with claws" are prancing about.

For me it would depend... For movie watching ect, i would want the grill on... As it would be distracting to have them off for watching a movie.. For stereo listening... i would be happy with them on or off.... With that being said, right now all of my grills are on. and my HT/Stereo listening is about 40/60... Stereo during the day, TV/movie at night.

I would leave the Grilles on but I would wish for a matching vp180 one. When I look at the front of my room I want so see matching speakers.

I prefer them off, but the WAF dictates they stay on. I will happily concede this minor point on grills given there's full support on the HT front including upgrades!

most of the time, my M80's grilles are on so it does not distract me; but sometimes i take them off as i like the looks.

I personally like seeing the drivers but I voted for grilles on. Catbrat is correct. Pets = grilles on.
