    It appears to be Polkaudio that posted it. Why they would they post a fake photo?

    Or a friggin conspiracy. F1 learned photoshop and then conspired with Polk to post an altered image to throw us off track!

    I'm not 100% on what details Polk will release on Friday, but I've got lots of juicy details, which I can reveal after the official announcement.

    I like that the design of the cabinet will prevent the tops from being used for houseplants and cup-holders.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Statement V2 cartridge and Origin Conqueror Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-LX701, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    I see they corrected the SDA title from CRS to SRS. I had emailed them pointing out the error, and other more minor, and suggested they get a refund from their advertising department.
