If you have ever owned the original Xbox slim you would know how easy they are to scratch. Even brush your finger across it and it will get micro scratches. Granted the REL is not plastic but its that easy to scratch. Would not say its misuse as all it dose it sit there with dust onit. When I wipe down even using Micro cloth it still leaves some micro scratches, so this is why I would like to slap some polish on it to give it a protective layer. The layer is to reduce the fish of adding more scratches. As to the people who use polish on there cars its not just to give there paintwork that extra shine !

Just used a Autoglym HD wax kit that came free with a magazine subscription. Was saving it for when I finally get a car worthy of its' use but thought I would give it a go to see if the factory piano black finish on my speakers could be improved upon. In conclusion my speakers look better than new but have become too detailed.

Brings my KEFLS50's up for a sparkling performance.
A common problem.
I find that hanging a deodoriser from the speaker terminals, the red obviously, usually solves this problem. The ones that look like pine trees are the best, make sure that it does not dangle down too far, as making contact with the surface of your shelf will nulify the effect.
We do so many shows in a row,
And these towns all look the same,
We just pass the time in our hotel room
And wander 'round backstage,
Till the lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.
Just a quick update, came home today to find they were now sounding a little dull. I can only assume this is part of the burning in process. Gave them another quick polish and buff with the microfiber cloth. Wow, now it's perfect - the sax playing on jazz floor is just incredibly live.
Thanks Dave, will try that hopefully it will keep them sounding pine fresh for months.
