I too didn't know until Slimpikins pointed it out. I think my v4 black oak looks better than TAM's rosewood. It looks better than v2 black oak. Everyone thinks it's real wood.

Where would you sit, lol.
M2's. I've always wanted to hear them.
I also had to take a second look when my M80HP's were unboxed. I was giddy. The vinyl looked/is amazing.

TAM


TAM - Your Rosewoods are the best looking. Don't take any stuff from anyone suggesting otherwise.

Rosewood is indeed gorgeous no matter what kind it is. I am sure TAM's active M5s in rosewood will look amazing!

Being serious for a change - our 4 year old M100's in real oak still look brand new. Try that with a Chinese made speaker.

My 12 year-old M80v2 with black oak in fine Valencia Vinyl still look like the day I bought them.

A factoid: lightning hit the giant oak beside my childhood home and leveled all of it except the one bedroom my parents and I were sleeping in.

I just noticed the M50s are 4dB more sensitive than the M3s. The M3s are already plenty loud at my MLP in the living room but could be louder when I'm putting around the adjacent kitchen. The M50s will likely do the trick. According to the specs, the M50s can go to 800W peak which means about 122dB at 3 feet away given their 94dB sensitivity. That's quite the feat! More importantly for me, there is no bump around 100Hz which means they'll be more compatible with my room.
