Frankie, my understanding is that CHT is going with a new manufacturer for their cabinets which will now be made with MDF instead of plywood. Further the speaker itself, will be significantly redesigned with a different type of horn while allegedly keeping the same model designations. This will happen later in the year. To say that the existing line was manufactured well would an act of kindness sufficient to be nominated for a humanitarian award.
If you're hell bent on buying their existing products, I'd wait until the time for the revised models gets closer when they'll reduce the prices to clear out their inventory. Otherwise you'll have to wait until the new revisions have been around for a while to gauge user feedback. The thing is Frankie, it'll be up to you to judge how reliable user feedback on any product is. A lot of times, it's like being in a nursery ward where every parent says how their baby is the most beautiful.
