Is Bohlender Graebener still in business? I did find info on the Neo 10 from Parts Express but Parts Express also stated  the Neo 10 is no longer available.

The BG data was purchased by Christie Digital and now makes them.

Just checked PE and it only says out of stock at the website.  I just bought some NEO10's and they arrived this week.

Actually Dia-ichi, a facility in the Philippines, made them for BG and Christy Digital.

Someone must of cleaned PE out on Neo 10's. I wonder who could have done that?

I think someone by the name Danny did. With the new speakers you have you might be buying Neo 10s and Neo 3s as fast as they can make them. I know I'm interested in the Neo 10 / Neo 3 monitor with the 3 M-165 for the bass/midbass. I like the NX Ottica but I like this Neo 10/3 monitor more because of the size.

 Excellent with the type of music we listen to. Acoustic & Classical most of the time. Fairly low volume. These could stand alone in the right environment. They can keep up with complicated arrangments. Imaging is excellent.

Yes those neo drivers are insanely fast.  They absolutely love complex music.

  Yours are finished. I was not going to use mine until they were sealed and painted. I caved. I should try out some diffusers. We listened to them for 5 hours yesterday. Very nice. Mabey a bit hot up top with our set up but that's easily rectified.

They were playing music long before the finish was done last year.

The speakers will mellow out in the top end quite a bit with about 200 hours of run in.

I have some N3S speakers that I have played for 100+ hours.
I hope there is some further taming of the upper range.
I also need to try different amps with them though.

I realize the N3S are different speakers but they do use the
Neo3 also

  They will settle down with time. It easy for us to tame them while they break in being strictly analog. An SRA change, different cartridge loading, a VTF change to a different cartridge while these get some time on them. I would rather have em' with something up top than not. To reiterate, we really like this setup. Low-level detail is outstanding.

The response of those is really flat. So they may just be letting you really hear what your gear is added. In the end if you want to bring the level down then the top end can easily be adjusted with slight resistor changes.
