is there much difference in finishes between the stock Cherry and the custom finishes ?
Just don't want to spend the extra extra on a real wood finich is there is a bog difference.

How do you mean 'much difference'? The real cherry does look different from the stock vinyl cherry definitely - are you looking at Cherry Bordeaux? It's a little hard to show in a photograph since vinyl is in fact a photograph of wood, but if I can provide you with any photos I'd be happy to.

Vinyl siding or real cedar shingles? Hmmm?

Axiomman, when you're getting ready to pull the trigger, for a small fee (refundable upon return) Axiom will send you samples so you can compare for yourself.

IMO their performance is too reasonably priced not to get 'em in wood (though you'll have to wait a little longer for them). Plus, the choices of combinations of wood species, stain colors, finish sheens and grille colors will make them look super custom.

Amy,
I was thinking more along the lines of Boston Cherry standard finish, and the Vinyl finishes Sorrel Pear.

I want HG Cherry but, that is no longer available, unless I order it in real wood.

I am trying to figure out if I really need M80's
how much is it to ship the M60's back. Wish I could have the M60 and M80 side by side to compare.

Just trying to decide, I am having two systems one in living room for music mostly, not at high volumes and for tv ( tsn, news, sitcoms ) probably 1 hr aday.

downstairs in the movie room, is well mostly movies and tv and will get 90% of the usage.
Not sure yet for movie room if I am going towers or bookshelves.
Where it gets tricky because upstairs I want to show off so they will be real wood Cherry Bordeaux, unless the Sorrel Pear is really a step above the standard Boston Cherry. Also, it is here I am unsure if M80's will make a difference ( alot ) over the M60's specially when running a Martin Logan Depth sub.

Don't listen to Bob! I thought Axiom made a mistake and sent me wood finished speakers and he was the evil man who came over to my house and gleefully pointed out that they were in fact vinyl. A true friend would have left me to my bliss.

Amy, does the $25 for the sample go towards the speaker price if I send it back ??
If so I will need to order four samples.
Sorrel Pear, Cinnamon Beech, Warm Cherrywood vinyl's and Cherry Bordeaux semi-gloss veneer
