I said I'm selling the speakers because I want to buy the BMR's, not because I'm disappointed in the finish. I said I wanted the custom finish because I was disappointed that my speakers arrived with minor imperfections that I had to spend time and money restoring personally. Overall the speakers look great. Even when initially posting about the flaws when I first noticed them, I mentioned they were insignificant and only needed a matching speaker color marker (which perfectly masked the 1" black sharpie line that was on the speaker originally).

Trust me, if the speakers had anything more than a couple of easily repairable minor imperfections, I would've asked Dennis Murphy for a return. Having said that, when paying $850 for speakers, it's fair to expect there not to a black sharpie mark on it. Furthermore, I've been insisting on selling these locally, in person, meaning that any person buying these is going to have a chance to thoroughly examine them before buying. Your fuss is unwarranted.

I'll be taking a pass this year. Although I've enjoyed meeting a lot of great people at the past Capital Audio Fests, from a business standpoint there's no point in spending all that money if you can't get reviewers to come into the room. Last year the rather meager press that attended only bothered with brick and mortar companies with the exception of Enjoy The Music, and that reviewer was never able to get his write-up published. There's just not a lot of reader interest in a small regional show.

Dennis, I apologise for the coverage not reaching publication. The room you shared with Salk and VanAlstine was outstanding! The Phil 3s, Exotica 3s, and Soundscape 8s all offered great sonics with Salk adding stunning finishes and the Phil 3s offering reference performance at a bargain price. Driven by VA electronics, also bargains, this room was packed all 3 days, I visited at least 6 times, just hanging out enjoying the music. You and Jim were the hardest working guys at the show, like a pit crew, speaker swaps were often and swift, thanks for letting us hear many speakers with the same electronics and room.
