Hello friends! I was wondering if I am gonna like the color I picked, which is light maple. As I was browsing some website the reviewer was saying that it looks like white washed. So right now that thing concerns me a little. Should I get Mansfield Beech or the Boston Cherry instead? HELP

I've had the Boston Cherry M22s for eight years and think they're quite attractive.

Edit: I note that Maple isn't shown now for the new v3s.

The light maple is not a true wood maple color it is more of a white washed oak IMO. There is a little too much grain for Maple and the color is more whiteish
This my old setup with the light maple on real maple wood:

That's odd, since Noreen said I was gonna get my speakers on V3 and I have chosen maple.

Maple looks nice to me, guess it is a matter of taste. \:\)

You can still get the Light Maple it can only be ordered via the custom shop, luckily it is still priced as a standard finish but now takes 10 days to produce.

Yeah, it's just the boston cherry and the black oak as standard finishes now.

Well I got lucky then. I ordered one day before changing to V3 and will receive the newer version and also ordered a color not considered as standard finishes no longer. LOL Couldn't be luckier. \:\)
