Thanks! I'd seen your gallery before but not noticed the HGC. Photos and in-person can be quite different (I learned that looking at houses for sale!) but the HGC does look comparatively better. I dunno if I can justify the $600+ premium for it, though, for an Epic 80.350 package (or $500 without the sub).

I do wonder that a different vinyl costs so much more, and that wood veneer costs as much more yet. I can understand that the wood material probably costs more and there's labor to finish it, but that much?

Guess I need to decide what's important ... and what I can get past $spouse. And if I can forgo the sub.

Economies of scale, basically, for the vinyl. The wood? They do about 12 coats of finish by hand.

I got my Boston Cherry and Mansfield Beech samples today and wasn't as impressed with them as I'd hoped. Trying to talk myself into HGC or wood.



Anthony, I got my beech M80s several weeks ago, love the sound, but like you was underwhelmed with the vinyl finish. I'm upgrading to wood, I think I'll be much happier! The best part is that I get to keep the vinyl speakers until the custom woods arrive!

I got my HGC sample today. Definitely *much* nicer than the BC.

Funny, My ValSallO Custom Wood sample arrived yesterday, and it rocked my world. Amazing grain and detail. On the back is a custom label that shows it was custom-built for me. No improvement on the sound there, but I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff! ;^)
