My delivery of the magazine ranges month to month, from as early as the 7th to as late as the 22nd. Just an observation, not a complaint. I just got lucky this month.
I am usually not critical of the price of gear. My philosophy is that it is what it is and you buy it or you don't. But, I have to make an exception for this speaker.
I am an enormous fan of this brand. I owned Model 6's for a long time and lusted greatly after the higher range models. I always felt that along with beautifully turned out products that sounded excellent, the brand offered a lot of value. I will qualify my further comment with the fact that I have not heard these speakers yet, but having read the review I must say: double the price of the 7B!!!!! The 7B is still an excellent speaker that is the same size, weight, excellent finish and basically similar specifications. A bitter pill to swallow indeed. I will not say more until I have heard it, but it gives one pause.
