I know I would have personally tried some glass cleaner.
In small quantities and very carefully/gently, of course.

I wouldn't use a glass cleaner with ammonia though.

Cheers,

My dealer told me to use Griot’s Garage Speed Shine Quick Detailer. You can get it on Amazon.

Does anyone know how the spikes on the 802D3 work on wood floors? Is there a soft spike for wood floors?

The spikes sit neatly inside spike cups for hard floor application. They work very easily and quite well...

Can anyone expound on the type of improvement I would expect going from an 802D1 to an 802D3? I am debating making this upgrade.

Strongly contemplating a purchase of 802/803 D3 speakers to replace 2 ML Motion 60XTs I have in a dual use system. I also have an HTM2 D3 as my center channel, which I absolutely love. Is it worth the "stretch" to get the 802s vs the 803s? I just upgraded my 2 channel system with a C2600/MC462 purchase and I would love to save a bit on this purchase if possible. My dealer is considering moving some demos and are offering a little bit of a discount.

These speakers will be powered initially by a MC205 (5x200) to start. I have listened to the 803s a fair bit and absolutely love them. Am I going to regret not getting the 802s if I go 803s? The price difference is not inconsequential. As to the bass, I have 2 JL Audio subs that are terrific that can both support home theater and music bass requirements if necessary.
