    The diaphragm assembly is lightly glued onto the magnet plate, yes. Perhaps more of a tacky substance, just enough to hold it in place during assembly. Ordinarily it would not be a big deal to work...

    The L100t and XPL140 reviews were published by Stereo Review. It can be presumed the others are as well since they are all in the same format.

    I saw this a while back. My first reaction was that it look's like someone else's superficial knockoff. Fair or not, I just don't get what is up with this effort.

    I have read through most of the issues that date back into the early 1980's and agree with your comments. There are only four reviews that I can recall- the L250, XPL 160, S38 and the Array 1400....
