Yea I will I just got to get my post count up.

I love them shiny no downsides I can think off. It makes the wood look so much better. On black speakers it may cause glare and reflections, but on cherry its not distracting at all. just lots of sexiness

Nice to know that. I recall that some folks were not happy with the idea, assuming reflections from the screen will hit the speakers and create issues. But, I guess is kind of the same with speakers with the black gloss finish.

Hey, do you mind if I link one of your pics here, so the other folks know "what the are we talking about"?

About 5hrs. Its tedious, and kills your back. Its takes some time removing and reinstalling the drivers, but its absolutely worth it. I have always loved high gloss speakers. It added a elegance to them, looks more like nice furniture then a speaker
