I talked to Arendal customer service about this already, but wanted to share the idea – due to recent events – here as well:
It would be great if Arendal would offer the option to buy the packaging of the speakers. I know this option from my current speaker manufacturer. So if you are moving or selling (shipping) the speakers, they will arrive save and sound. Not everybody has the space to store the speaker boxes.
I actually wanted to exchange my speakers with some from Arendal, because I already switched out the subwoofers. I found a perfect matching offer of “used like new” monitors. The person did not have the original packaging anymore, but promised to ship them in good packaging. They arrived today and several corners are splintered/dented. Not only that I am very disappointed because I was looking forward to this change of speakers and happy about the good offer, but it is pretty sad seeing those nice speakers likes this as well.
