I was just wondering what others use or what Harbeth would recommend.
Do love the sound of them though.
Oil or polish is not recommended in the manual. I'm guessing that the original problem may have been caused by swings in temperature and/or humidity, or direct sunlight. Now that the surface of the veneer is cracked, light oiling may slow down the process. I would be cautious as you may compromise the glue that bonds the veneer. I would check with an expert before proceeding. Perhaps, HUG may have a suggestion.
