Wow they are really nice, but for a tower speaker it may be a little much...

Depends on the room. I think glossy orange tower speakers would look fantastic in a large room with the right decor.

Those look pretty sharp. Is that black trim around the top? If so, I like it and it breaks up the orangeness gives it some character.

CV should get these for his Negative Orange Room.

Yep, in the right room a great wood finish would just look out of place. This under a Picasso would look very cool. Heck, there are many exotic speakers that come in custom car paint colors. E.g.:

Mainly because people who can afford monsters like that can afford interior decorators.

What, your HT does not nave a stream running through it? Wow, they let anybody in here...

By the way, my addiction to this stuff started when I heard a pair of Wilson speakers like these (but different model, WATT Puppies I think). Still searching for that first "hit" again. My speakers are nice, but wow that was a religious experience.

Well, at best, they are unique in a world of wood and MDF. But they do sound great.
