I received my MMR LE on 5/25/16 (last week) and posted a photo here immediately after delivery. The carton looked fine -- no areas of concern including clamping or crush points. I had an incident of concealed damage (new TV) in the past, so I'm pretty alert when it comes to signing off on deliveries.
I did notice a piece of brown tape on the back corner, but there wasn't an indention nor any sign of damage. The opposite back corner was pretty much flawless.
I decided to unbox it tonight to get it prepped for transport upstairs (shrinkwrap, blankets, etc.). I discovered a nice scratch on the left side of the cabinet (which matches up with where the outer tape is placed).
I'd like to believe it was R+L Carriers who concealed the damage, but who knows? I know these things happen, but it's the last thing I want to deal with right now. I have absolutely no time (or patience) for DIY decal replacement.
DUST: Mine was covered in sawdust. It's the same fine powder you'll find in a speaker cabinet factory, except they do a proper job of wiping their products before packing. Don't believe those who say it's from the carton because it's NOT.
I also have a long faint scratch on the lockdown bar, along with a rust-like blemish on the corner of it. Needless to say, I've initiated a support ticket. Passing off the cruddy lockdown bar is pretty shady on an $8,000 item -- even if it's to a route operator.
