May have to cut one speaker conductor shorter than the other to have the cable hang down straight.
Hope this doesn't cause undue anxiety to potential users.

PS: good looking speakers though... RRP is the same as the Silver 200's when they were launched which would mean a "street price" of around R20K ... or thereabouts... we can only speculate... depending on when it reaches SA... and the exchange rate...

Certainly worth keeping an eye on.
Interesting that this is another 'grille-less' design.
As per my Spendor A2's.
(As is the case here though, the tweeter is protected.)
And Vivids I suppose.
Maybe this is a trend.
I can see some people missing the grilles.
I haven't missed them for a second.

Makes me think, anyone tried to centre speakers in a stereo setup?  Should it work?

Reports are the MA Studio's are very, very fussy about placement and room acoustics... as many studio monitors should be, perhaps. That being said, their marketing shows these in living rooms and as TV front channels.
