npt3 Posted October 3, 2018 Report Share Posted October 3, 2018 So I'm moving my listening room upstairs. I found a near-mint pair of Nines and brought them home tonight. They were in a wall unit where the cabinets were built around them, so the oak (the "almost" part, I was looking for walnut) was in perfect condition, as were all of the drivers and the woofer grilles. The front grilles had minor damage, but with a little judicious repair should not evidence anything amiss to the casual viewer (I got me a pair of Alex B's replacement front grilles just in case.) Going to give them a spin shortly and will post pics for the curious. Two minor 'restoration' questions for the group: the bases are scratch-free, but have some, I guess, pitting. Any suggestions on how to clean those up so they look nice and clean (short of repainting them)? these are the oak finish - as I recall this veneer has a clear finish on it. Has anyone tried to stain the oak veneer to have it approach (but for the different grain pattern) walnut? Like I said, the finish on these speakers is perfect, so I'm reluctant to do anything to it, but still. Yayyyyyyy! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
