TT,
I got my Dad a set of M3's in rosewood semigloss and the finish is great. Click on My HT, then Photos and look for the red room - its in there somewhere... excuse the drywall dust on the speakers.
I would order a custom finish again without hesitation.

I have that system in a natural cherry (sorry not rosewood) and I can say that the quality is fantastic. I agree with Scott above that I would order again without hesitation.

The vinyl wrap is the best in the industry, so I assume Axiom would also make a high quality wood product.

I have a pair of M80s and M22s, both in the "high gloss" piano black finish. You can see the time and effort and workmanship that has gone in to producing this type of speaker cabinet finish and they have always been delivered within the specified time frames.

I am hoping at some time down the road to order a VP180 in the same finish, however, I blew my budget for the year on this stuff in the first four months so it will have to wait. Believe it or not, even at a little over $1100, the VP180 with the high gloss custom finish, compared to the competitors I have seen in this speaker category, would still be a bargain.

Onn, that is a stunning system you have. No question in my mind now that I'll be getting the high gloss rosewoods next time around.
