    Strange I thought the 600 series dropped the insensitive copper domes but I checked and it seems they still used them.

    Indeed and super heavy when lifted together the B250 new in 1991 was around 1400 its interesting because the lot came up before and thought it had sold as was listed for 1000 but when looked a couple days ago it was re listed for a much cheap price so we went to check them out and all was good guy inherited them

    I dread to think what the modern equivalent of that lot would cost now. Nice buy!
    Conspiracy theories are only perpetuated because people go looking for them!

    Yep all the Matrix seem to be, I wonder if they made many teak/walnut at that point. I did once see some rosewood originals, very nice.

    You could get the Matrix series in other finishes, when I had a listen to them they were rosewood or similar. It was a very long time ago and it was someone else's demo, I just sneaked in and stood at the back.
