    Btw, is there a ballpark date when the upgrades will be available? As in, a few weeks or is it more like a few months?

    edit: "I hate discussing products that are still a few months away", so still a few months away it sounds like...
    Ballpark date -- this depends on 2 items. SEAS production (they are always a bit slow and they are on holiday right now until Aug 2nd and how we ship the parts... Shipping from Norway by ocean typically takes from 3 weeks to 1 month.

    If we ship everything by air (which is an option), the final cost of the upgrade will increase by what I estimate to be between $5 - $10 each, to cover the huge expense of air-shipping this many parts. When all parts are ready and I can evaulate the cost of both shipping options, I will probably let you guys decide by which method we ship. Air-shipping will certainly shave about 3 weeks off the wait, but it will cost you (and us) a bit more.

    It's sad isn't it? Such great music ruined... I can't understand why there isn't a re-release of this great record, by anyone who gives two cents about sound quality... It would probably sell a lot, pretty much everyone who bought that record would probably buy it again so they could at least listen to the damn thing I'm somewhat skeptical that the new Sierras can make it sound good... One of my all time favorite bands, Modest Mouse, also has that kind of poor recording, albeit at a slightly lesser level... That was probably one of my worst deceptions when first spending time with good speakers, finding out how so many records are flawed and simply aren't worthy to play on a good stereo...

    For shipping, I wouldn't mind either way, still have the Sierras so it's not urgent, and 5-10$ isn't a lot on a ~350$ purchase... Oh but that's per unit, so 10-20$ for 2 or 15-30$ for 3... Guess I wouldn't mind waiting a couple weeks then!

    If a new customer like me was to go ahead and order Sierra-1s I could listen to them and then do the upgrade and be able to do a direct comparison...I would know how they both sound

    Dave I sent you a PM this morning but I know you are busy so I'm not rushing you just giving you a heads up.

    PM and email sent!
    If it's only $5-$10 more to air ship, that's not horrible.
    Will the Q plugs still function the same with the upgrade?

    Hi Dave, is the improvements in frequency response due solely to the new tweeter and crossover?

    I remember we discussed once how the diffraction off the edge of the cabinet caused some deviations in the FR. So the new tweeter and crossover was able to compensate for that? If so, that's pretty cool!

    The difference in the two Sierras is significant, and I am definitely upgrading. When we were listening, we had had one speaker as a reference which we compared to the old/new tweeter/crossover--and the difference was significant, much greater, I think, than the difference between the 340 and the Sierra.

    So, Dave.......

    Any info on how to reserve your spot for the upgrade? Thought I saw you posted on AVS about having new info for that.
