DHL dropped off one M3 last Friday and then dropped off the other one on Monday. Spectacular. . . It was a busy weekend and I wouldn't have had time to do any serious listening anyway, but it was still frustrating. Really, I've only been able to sit down for a couple hours on Monday night to spend time with them. My plan is to put together a speaker comparison with some other bookshelf speakers that I have. That'll happen over the holidays more than likely. Here are some pics of the High Gloss Burled Walnut:






The high gloss finish is really difficult to photograph without horrendous reflections. Maybe I should try taking them outside during the day to avoid the camera flash. Very elegant looking finish, if I say so myself!

Nice looking, I like the custom finish.

Thanks guys!


And Tom, if it makes you feel better, sometimes I can't listen to my speakers because I'm too busy driving around in my Ferrari with my supermodel girlfriend. . .

Those are beautiful!

I was tossing the idea around on ordering the Burled Walnut instead of the HG Cherry but without seeing it and mainly due to decor the HG Cherry won out. A set of Burled Walnut M3's in a another room though....hmmm

It was a tough call. I really like what I've seen of the pics of HG Cherry, but in the end I wanted something completely different from everything else I have.
