I just got a pair of these bookshelf speakers. After some break in these speakers are really sounding good. I think they are a very musical speaker. They are not fatiging and are well balanced.
I ordered these in midnight mohagany and to my surprise. when I opened the box, they looked like black painted speakers. I thought I had been sent the wrong speakers. Upon very close examination I could make out the mahogany woodgrain. At first, I didn't like the finish but after awhile it started to grow on me. Very subtle color which is pretty cool. Very different from other wood grain veneer I have seen.
