Spendor A3 modified already?

There is a good review in Issue 86 of Hi-Fi Plus of the Spendor A3. They are highly rated in the review but I was surprised to read that the speaker has been modified. The port length has apparently been changed and the foam damping eliminated. The change has resulted in more bass output and they are now described as 'more fun'.
Does anyone know whether the recent price reduction for these speakers in some outlets is to do with this change? Also, they are high on my short list to buy, but how do you tell if you getting old or newly modified speakers? Perhaps Spendor should make this change known?
Best wishes

Yes, thanks for the link, I will drop them a line. However, i do feel there is a wider point here that people could spend up to £1300 on a pair of speakers that have not been modified (and significantly improved) and another person by chance gets a pair that are modified. I think manufacturers need to be a little more open if they ammend a product so soon after it appears.

Best wishes
