Which satin cherry did you purchase? If it was the US built cabinets, yes -- we can refinish your gloss cherry to match the satin cherry. However, it is likely to be more expensive then purchasing new cabinets. Send me an email or call to discuss.

I've definitely found myself getting fatigued with the Bostons after long listening sessions at high volumes.

If I go with the 1s, I wouldn't chose the NrT upgrade so it's sounds like I'm safe either way.
I installed the NrTs in my Sierra-1s after using them for a while with the stock tweeter. The NrT upgrade doesn't make it bright or forward IMHO so don't let that stop you....

I have the 1's and love them, but I'd at least Demo the 2's if I could afford them.
The 1's sound pretty awesome, listening to them now.

Quick question before I order ...is there any reason why I wouldn't want to add the magnetic shielding? They will be resting close to my PC monitor. Thanks again!
