    Maybe there will be a line of 10" or 12" Ascend bamboo cutting boards too.

    Dave -- this is awesome. I knew the bamboo speaker cabinet revolution was coming, but I didn't expect you to be in the vanguard. Kudos not only for the decision, but for all your engineering diligence in demonstrating what a great material this is. Looking forward to seeing what other tricks the Sierra-1 has up its sleeve!

    Oh and...make mine the "natural" finish...

    Nomad Audio is the only one I know (knew) of...their "Ronin" is a completely different kind of product than the Sierras.

    My vote is for the natural bamboo cabinet. I am curious to find out the price of the Sierra. Better enclosures, drivers and designed by Dave. Will be a great speaker.

    The cutting board comments are great!

    clarke68, I know I owe you a phone call - sorry I did not call you back yet. Besides the Sierra, I have a LOT going on in my personal life right now.

    Send me an email and let me know what you had in mind regarding the message you left with James.

    Hi Dave,
    what is that threaded insert for? Is it for wall mounting. The 170s have 2 of them...

    The 340 has the the same insert/same location, so my guess is it is for attaching to the stand.

    I also wonder if that insert can hold the weight of the speaker if wallmounted.

    very good question, but the rear port would be wayy to close if this screwed into anything but a long arm type mount... again, when can we get these bad boys!

    In my room, it would work fine. My surrounds are mounted to ceiling beams with nothing but free-air to the port.
