This is reallly interesting! I voted before I read the comments (worried about spoilers, you know) which made it even more interesting to see what other people thought!
Ken, we just had four people from SoundStage! up, doing a factory tour and critical listening, and when they saw warm cherrywood and sorrel pear on the line they were really impressed with them. Maybe it's a regional thing? For example, people who order light maple with black grilles almost without exception live in the southern US. Northerners go tan.
