The reviewer had this pair of SoundScape 10's in his system for eight months. So he certainly had enough time to document any faults he was able to find. He told me that if he listened to a component he did not think highly of, he would pass on the review rather than writing a negative one. So from that point, being picky about the grills on the Accutons and the spacing of the binding posts is something we can certainly live with.
As for the Accuton grills, I can say with certainty that if they were not equipped with grills, we would not offer them. On two occasions, I accidentally touched the rear of the cones when installing them and was treated to the sound of cracked ceramic cones...not pleasant to listen to and certainly not pleasant to replace at $350 each. So, if they did not have grills, we wouldn't consider using them.
The binding post positions were determined by the Cardas jumpers we ship on these speakers. If we spaced them wider, the jumpers would not work. I figure Cardas has been around long enough so that they have pretty much established a reasonable standard for binding post spacing.
My only reaction to the review as a whole was that I wondered how valuable it would be to someone considering these speakers. He did make some comparisons but really didn't address what the speaker sounded like as a whole. So I'm not sure how valuable the review would be to someone trying to make a purchasing decision.
Other than that, he told me he was highly impressed with the speakers and thought we would be very happy with his positive review. I guess we can't ask for more than that.
