  1. I had a few minor nicks on the lower front edges of my Cornwall IVs that I filled with a Mohawk wax stick. After wiping the wax off I'm left with a few "glossy" spots that just won't come off - I've tried alcohol, Goo-Gone, and mineral spirits and nothing worked. I'm not sure why the finish got so glossy so easily - I didn't burnish the surface much at all. Is there way to easily restore these to the original satin gloss or am I SOL? If it's not really a DIY task, what would it take for a professional to do this right? Do the entire cabinets need to be repainted or (assuming these were painted with a base/clear) could the clearcoat just be resprayed on the front edges (i.e. edge banding)? Is this something that could be performed well by a mobile furniture repair company? If it's going to be a large undertaking to do this right and/or not make it worse, I'll likely wait until these are significantly older before dealing with a repaint. Fortunately since the blemishes are low on the speakers they're pretty dang hard to notice. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
  2. These are still available. Last few days for a Klipsch forum "exclusive" before they also go on USAM too!
  3. I should re-post to update my experience because the last couple of times I’ve contacted Klipsch customer service the response has been quick, friendly, and - most importantly - they got my problems fixed without any long waits or follow-up. Hiring the additional help must’ve done the trick because just...wow.
  4. The MX-VNYL was my first dedicated phono stage and I loved it - only sold it because I upgraded to the M6-VNYL then a Manley Chinook SE Mk II. The MX-VNYL has plenty of gain for 0.5mV LOMC cartridges, is VERY flexible with tons of on-the-fly loading options, and it was QUIET. GLWS!!
  5. Yep, they're still available. C'mon @Peacemaker, you know you need a second set of HT speakers! 🙂
  6. Yes, they're still available. Done. Sorry about not replying sooner - for some reason I'm not getting notifications when there are new posts.
  7. Yep, it’s been frustrating over the past few months trying to get timely updates for parts and support inquiries. I know that the customer service side of the house has recently hired on new help, now if only the warehouse could respond to customer service’s stock and status inquiries a little more quickly...
