I just noticed a huge color difference between my two Monitor 10s. . . I knew the serial numbers were quite far apart (188900/ 172300) but never noticed such a huge color difference. Se # 188 is dark brown vinyl (walnut) and Se#172 is a more pecan color or lighter prettier as well. Function and cosmetics / drivers etc. are perfect only different colors. . .
I might not have noticed but I put my 2 Yamaha NS-690IIs in their place for a listening evaluation and for temp I stacked the Polks on the other side of the room. My wife noticed it first now it is all I see.
I do not plan on selling them, quite the opposite I love them and they are my Front speakers. My intention is to complete my HT system with other similiar Monitor 5/7 or the like including a center or a single 5 or 7 as center.
Any ideas?? I thought about recovering or new hardwood veneer but that as far as I got. . . Thinking. . . Anyone know a remedy that keeps them stock?? Maybe buy a single close to the serial number of one or the other. . .??
