I can tell you that at this time, it's an 8 to 8 split vote

Ah, so it's settled then- thanks for the help!

Both would look great in that room. The speakers you have now look great. The Cherry seems to match pretty close to the wood in there now.
Good luck

I chose the Rosewood finish, I like the way the grain comes through on those. Have you considered the HG Black ? I bet they would look steller in your room, talking about a nice contrast.

14 to 13, cherry finish ahead by 1.

Regardless of how the finish matches with the room, the rosewood is Much more intersting to look at, than the cherry. IMO!

Whatever you choose, we want to see pics when you get em!

Now 15 to 14 for Cherry. I voted for cherry -- you have a very elegant room there and I think the rosewood would be a bit too "loud" even though it is a beautiful finish.

I LIKE my Axioms loud, FWIW!

I pick rosewood, just wish I could upgrade to a different finish, there are a lot more options available now compared to when I bought my Axioms. Then I could get some 80's or another EP500 arrrrrrrrrr arrrrrrrr

I went back to the first page of this thread again to look at the poll results and it's giving me the "You must vote before you can view the results of this poll" kind of deal. Funny thing, I've ALREADY voted once earlier today.

David, I think you might get two votes from me for rosewood...
