No problem. I wouldn't read that much into it, but I really don't personally think the 708i's are in the same league as the M2/Revel Salon2. They may sound fantastic (which they do) but the M2's are...

Yes you're right, it's very unlikely in the real world. In a perfect world, that's a different story. Having a very strict mandatory standard is unrealistic and impossible, but for there to be some...

Okay, that's what I was thinking. It's definitely not the OEM piece. The other 708i has the black piece like you mention and the + - correspond.

Very close, they're about ~24 inches or so from a boundary. I'd put them closer to the wall but I need to get behind them to turn them on (powered)

Looks like I'm gonna be playing "catch that buzz" as well. Was playing around with my 708i's today and as soon as the amp powers on, I hear the buzz so it has nothing to do with the processor.
