Just curious if anyone has seen any of these finishes.

I'm leaning towards the Russian Maple. What I can't tell from the photos is if any of these finishes are a high gloss or are they pretty flat?

The Sorreal Pear looks kinda orangey.

I thought you already ordered?

There's no way someone can really describe a finish. Your best bet is to order samples and look at them in your own home under different lighting scenarios.

Sorrel Pear is decidedly orangey.

The Russian Maple has always been my favorite, if I wasn't so cheap I would have a set with that vinyl.

I was initially thinking of doing something like getting the subs in vermont maple and the speakers in Russian Maple since they have a bit of a dark grain running through them. It would give a bit of contrast but it's really hard to tell how that would look.

In the end I think it's probably better to go with all one colour.

Has anyone seen the Burnt Sienna grill covers? I'm curious if they would look better with the Russian Maple Vinyl finish.

I could probably order the grills and if I don't like them, ship them back and get the black ones. But then it is an added cost.

Hi Daniel,

Yes, I've seen the Burnt Sienna grilles back at the Axiom plant. As Ken C noted, they do have an orangey tinge but "rust-colored" is how I'd describe them. They do provide a nice contrast with some of the finishes, however actually getting samples is really the only way to absolutely know.

Regards,
Alan

Daniel, you're in T.O., why not take advantage of the nice weather lately and go for a road trip up to Dwight to check out the finishes?
