    Update: We expect an end-of-production status any day, and with it photography. Hopefully this is it, folks. It'll be a relief to deliver the news.

    And with that news comes content on the 700 series, on lead-off subwoofers, and not long thereafter, on a lot of other things we've spent time on. Meanwhile the fifth and final generation A series is by now the most refined it can be - and has proven a very tough act to beat. What started as a top-rated contender has only improved over time, increment by increment. Nothing we can do will beat its value. Can't be done.

    But you want to know about the L's, and that material could be here at any time. Hang in there; and thanks!

    We're also in the middle of a minor forum overhaul, which is outlined in a new News post here. L series comment threads are part of a new L Series sub-forum, here, which includes this thread. A brief new introduction to the L series headlines this new forum.

    Be sure to check the News now and then post for updates, while L series updates will naturally appear in the threads in this new sub-forum.

    The thread is fine - just cleaned it up slightly in anticipation of real news on the L models. Also really looking forward to updating the sub thread on the best value in high performance compact powered subs anywhere, and the 700 series thread on another surprise.

    FYI Jon, it looks like something is broken on the forum. Maybe some posts were removed, but every time I visit I still get a notification that blogreader and 1 other have posted on your subscription: ____ but the the subscription name (this one) is blank. Even though I've visited several times, it still shows the same notification. Not a big deal, but didn't know if you knew.

    I plan on moving my Chane A5rx-c full setup to the MBR, so I will definitely be interested in the upcoming L6 & a pair of L7s as my new main theatre/music room setup.

    No more updates on estimated time frames, folks, until photography is done. Let's keep the thread on topic.

    That's a good question. All models come in the black beveled front and back baffles shown in the prototype here. First production has the same case finish too, a walnut-look material I personally like quite a lot.) Second production, which initiate not long after the first are being assembled, will come in A series black sides. Fronts and backs will be unchanged.

    I'd keep them within their families - it'll become clearer when you see them side by side. I can't (yet) think of an acoustical reason to mix them.

    Nice A5.5s!

    I was told last night that cabinets are done. That's six models. Next step, photography while crating is going on. Then shipping to the US for assembly, testing, inspection, and warehousing.

    As always, all updates post here as they happen.

    Then someone on r/hometheater mentioned talk of new products happening in the forum here... I just read every post in this thread and the subwoofer thread. Wow! So many new products in the pipeline. In what seems seems to be great timing as I'm looking for LCR for my main family room HT.

    L6, L7, L3, L3c
    700 series (no models mentioned)
    A4.5, A6.5
    4 "XSG" 10" sub models

    Did I miss anything?

    I found the table in the OP super helpful to reason about the L6 L7. Has anyone done this for the other products?
    Not yet - holding off on everything else until arrival. (The L7 has been the usual "3 Years in Development!" sort of marketing announcement thing only in plain view. That'll teach me. The good news is that it has evolved a lot in that time. Little resemblance to the original A7 concept.)

    Looking forward to sharing a lot more as soon as we can...
