I heard a rumor that the original number in the production run was fifty something pairs but there were people who wanted to use the new WAMM in all speaker positions in their home theater 5.1 set-up, hence the increase to 70 pairs!

Aspects of the WAMM have already trickled down to Alexx, Yvette, and the just introduced Alexia 2.
