Unless you have a pretty non-standard installation where the surrounds are not mounted on the walls, I don't think it would be weird at all. Most people don't spend a lot of time looking at the surrounds, they are pretty small, and they don't have very much woodgrain exposed, anyway.

That's what I was thinking myself. Unfortunately I'm going to be spending about as much as I can just to get some M80's, I'm not sure I can justify adding another ~500 to make em even prettier.

I think it will be fine too. How about this psychology:

People see the wood floor standers and assume the surrounds are wood finished too.

Anyone figures out the truth you bop em over the head.

There are no matching options between wood and vinyl. This applies not only to Axiom speaker cabinet finishes, but to the remainder of the universe as well.

"a little snotty,"??? HA!

Kidding aside, you may get close if Amie advises you on which options are closest to each other.

i.e. Axiom's clear finish maple veneer and the maple vinyl look very different. By comparison, the plastic, er, I mean vinyl, looks more like pickled maple. Also, once the wood color begins to change with age, the vinyl won't being following suit.

My existing QS4's are Boston Cherry. Planning to move those to the rear and get some QS8's for the sides. Man, I really would like to get the M80's in real wood...
