According to Focal "...For the first time, these speakers employ a covering in acrylic, which the mirror luster gives a depth in the black finish never seen before on a speaker, not even with a true piano black lacquer.."
What they omit to mention is that this acrylic is susceptible to micro scratches and scuffs, no matter how gently you clean them with the softest of microfiber cloths.. I live in an apartment where dust is a problem.. so i need to dust off my equipment on almost a daily basis. As soon as i cleaned the speaker for the first time with the included cloth it started showing very tiny micro scratches... call me anal, but i like to keep my audio equipment in mint condition.. I can´t imagine what they would look like 6 months / 1 year from now..
That´s what bothered me of the speakers and made me exchange them.
