Can't go wrong with black!

Here are a few pics of the ones I just unboxed :-D. I will say that taking pictures of the glossy surface is a major pain. I tried to capture more of the colour than anything because I had a tough time finding nice pics of HG Cherry, most of them look a bit orange, they are darker in real life. Once I get them in the room and all setup I'll do some gallery pics.

Don't mind the fingerprints!

Very nice indeed! I love that finish. Have you hooked them up yet? When I got my W's I kooked them up to an existing stereo just to hear them - they were propped up on the floor for a couple of days before I was ready to put them in the wall. Thanks for posting the pics!

I hooked them up last night in place of my current Boston bookshelves and ran them 2.1 with the sub. They blend very well with my sub so far and I haven't spent more than two minutes setting them up. I could not play them very loud (in the condo for another three weeks) but they sounded fantastic, I am very pleased. At first listen they seemed pretty forward but I got used to it in minutes and enjoyed them for a couple hours. I just can't wait to hear them at some decent volume, I couldn't even get the drivers visibly moving.

They are built solid, nice and heavy and just reek of quality. The added touch of putting your name on them is super classy as well. I am more than satisified at this point.

What do you mean? Are you talking about on the speakers themselves, or on the boxes they came in?

Also, fork your neighbors... you're moving anyway right? Crank those bad boys and let everyone know who's king!

Both actually, but I first noticed it on the speakers themselves. I'll take a picture tonight, very cool. I guess they only do it on custom finishes seeing as how it says "custom built for..."

I don't need to burn any bridges... But I may be able to get lucky when they're not home, I only have above and below neighbors, none on the sides.
