    Rosewood then BEM (or WSM) then Cherry. And piano makes everything better.

    I think I have to vote rosewood as well, but I've always liked the look of rich, dark woods as well. I think a piano mahogany would be pretty amazing. I'm not a fan of BEM or most other light finishes, but I do think AV123's Moho is cool looking - just wouldn't work in my house.

    I love the look of the moho finish. My X-Statiks are moho and I had originally thought cherry would look best, but I took that back as soon as I saw these in person.

    While rosewood looks good, I feel it'd probably look out of place on X-Statiks, as well as moho would probably look out of place on Rockets.

    Thoes are very nice looking. Right before I left Listen Up Audio, I seem to remember a set of B&W 805's that had like a laquered deep rosewood. I though they were the sharpest in the store.

    I don't much care for the finish on my Paradigms,Light oak or somthing. Either way, thier like a cheap paper vaneer but my Sat's (Surrounds and center) are a nice black piano laquered finish. When dusted they really shine.

    Has anyone seen a cabinet finished in Black Walnut? Have always loved the look. I was thinking it is to hard of a wood? Question

    I think the x-statics looks the best in Moho. I almost got the black ones but was in a financial problem at the time and had to cancel. I now have the Piano Rosewood Strata Mini's. I was torn between piano black or piano rosewood on these things. Had the opportunity to trade for piano blacks but decided to keep the rosewoods eventhough it doesn't match anything I have.

    So far, non-vinyl speaker finishes I've had:
    Rosewood - av123 ELT525 and Onix Ref 0.5
    Rosenut - Energy RC-10
    Cherry - Energy RC-10/RC-Mini
    Piano Black - NHT SB1

    Of these, the Ref 0.5 rosewood was my favorite, with the ELT rosewood and Energy cherry following closely. The Energy rosenut is nice, but the red is a bit more brownish and the grain is less prominent and doesn't stand out as much, compared to av123's rosewood. Energy's cherry finish is very nice however...not an overly orange finish like av123's cherry (based on pics I've seen). Piano black is nice, but it's a dust and fingerprint magnet, and sometimes the reflections are annoying.

    The finish I ultimately want in my home is the natural bamboo of the Ascend Sierra's.

    Rosewood vs. other finishes

    Post  jedinite24 on March 10th 2010, 9:28 pm

    Hmm I'd have to say Cherry, Black Ash, then maybe Oak are my favorite finishes for speakers. I know really boring but those are the finishes I like. I guess I don't like the Rosewood finish because that was the color of a majority of the furniture my parents had when I was growing up and even to this day. JD
