    Default Show Me Your LSiM's!

    In the great debate of which finish to get, I haven't seen very many in room pictures of LSiM Speakers. I'm sure either would work in my room, but it's hard to tell just what the finishes look like from the product photos on the website. I'd love to see some examples of them installed to gauge what I'll like best.

    So here's your chance to show off! Show me your LSiM's! Feel free to get closeups of the finish. :D

    TIA!

    I find the mahogany very hard to photograph I need a much better light source to do it justice. http://www.avsforum.com/g/a/2219834/...l-polk-thread/ but in a darkened room it looks black.

    I would need a softbox external flash to do this mahogany finish justice. I really like it. I am not sure how the LSi cherry compares to the LSiM cherry...but I placed it by an LSi cherry for reference.

    Not great pix...but you asked

    Great responses! From what I can tell the Mahogany disappears into a room a bit better, perhaps the better Home Theater speaker when you don't want to draw any attention to it? I do like how the Mahogany blends to the front face better, but the cherry sure does make the speakers pop!

    The S.O. likes the Mahogany a bit more, the Cherry looks a bit too orange for her tastes, but she does love the cherry finish on the RTi's, she says they're a very pretty speaker. Anybody have a pic of them side by side?

    Oooh, found this one too, does seem awfully dark, perhaps better suited to a brighter room than a HT Basement?

    Again, if you haven't seen it in person, for all intents and purposes its a black speaker. The light has to hit it just right to bring out that warm tone, and even then, you're likely going to have to look very closely to see it.

    This pushes me towards cherry. :)

    the dark brown color looks black under normal home lights. I only see brown when I point the light directly to it. You see it brown from pics online because of the camera flash.
    I don't like cherry because it stands out too much. My Lsi9s are cherry. Side by side, even my wife said the black color looks "classy". Unless all of your furnitures are cherry, then get cherry to match.

    Check on my signature "My Multimedia Room Gallery". Those pictures are from the old RTi A system. I need to upgrade those pictures with the new LSiM system and the Marantz SR7008. Everything else stays the same.

    That is perfect for HT. You want everything dark except for the screen in a HT. I need to paint my walls a flat gray to reduce reflected light in my HT room.

    Enrico, Nice looking setup! More pics of the front view?? Those definitely do look black! I think I'm sold on the Cherry's.

    Blue, I totally know what you mean. Adding a black sheet above the PJ screen made a nice improvement in picture quality, but as of now there's a quite a bit of reflected light in the room, and the A9's being cherry are the least of my problems...White ceiling and all.

    Thanks everybody for your help! I think I've made my decision, Cherry it is! The S.O. likes the Cherry A9's, these should match well for it, and I really like how the cherry makes them pop compared to the ebony. Perhaps if I ever have need them upstaris where it's much lighter they'd be perfect. :)

    Thanks again everybody! But by all means, don't hesitate to keep showing off your LSiM's, always fun looking at peoples setups. :)

    enricoclaudio,
    What camera are you using? I'm guessing a digital SLR? Your pictures are nice and have great resolution.

    This speakers are too heavy for surrounds ... if not screwed to the stand, i am afraid they keep falling off
