Gents - If one orders the low satin finish option on the real wood finish of Axiom speakers, a very thin coat of a durable sealant is applied. This prevents colouration, but still lets all the wood grain through.

It is completely unlike what one sees coming from China, which has more coats of goop on them than Miley Cyrus on stage.
