I had an opportunity to run up to PE's Catalog Showroom today just to look around at what I see online and in their ads. They had the new, assembled, veneered bookshelf enclosures (MT and MTM styles) that are new to their line in the showroom. They are very impressive; well built and braced (heavy!) and had a very nice finish on them. I particularly liked the Black version which was not a woodgrain veneer, but a High Gloss Black, like you would see on a piano. The baffles were a satin black on all models and were radiused to minimize diffraction. For those of you like me, (I can build a solid box, but it won't be pretty), these are hard to beat, especially at the price. Just thought I would pass on my observations to those of you that can not go see these first hand.
