I agree, it's way to much effort/danger to ship these around the country.

Or from Canada or even Europe,have to be insured for FULL PRICE.
Probably looking at 4-600 to ship from Canada,as stated not worth the hassle.
Then the time and hassle to get your money out of fedex or whoever the couriers are.
It would have to be a major upgrade,even then I believe my 7's would stay right at home.
Course if the reviews from audiophiles were that good then I'd sell the 3.7's and just upgrade thru my audio dealer.

Interesting that they have now added an 'i' suffix like Volkswagen!

I'll be upgrading to the 20's, if I do upgrade; Maggies are like boats -- what is the saying? -- two foot-itis...

So what happened with these speakers? Were they at CES?

I've sent Wendell an email about this a few weeks ago but still have not received a reply.

The website does make reference to the 3.7i iteration, but all they say is that it's a $500 factory upgrade and that this is the first time that they have offered such an upgrade route.

According to my dealer, the bass is significantly improved. No further need for the DWM bass panels. Also a more seamless transition from midrange to tweeter, possibly due to changes in the crossover frequencies.

Thanks, Ken. You stay on top of these things.

Sounds like a nice improvement for what already was a great speaker.
