Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

Black oak is actually my preference - easier to match to components and no distracting reflections.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

I thought the gloss black was gorgeous, but a Rosewood would be great. If they do offer a wood finish (besides black oak) I think it would be helpful to carry subs in the same finish as well, ie: bring back a rosewood (rosenut) PB-13 Ultra at least.

Next would be a gloss birdseye maple/birch for a lighter color finish option.


If they are looking at other ideas, Maccasar Ebony would be drool inducing (perhaps the most cost prohibitive, but unique and gorgeous, and would play with the trapezoidal lines in an interesting way), and a gloss finish can up the lux factor.For example, something like this:



As a side note, images of the wood may be helpful in getting feedback. I had no idea what spalted maple looked like, and I see a lot of variation of it in Google images.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

I like a non reflective black for my HT room. Black oak is their current offering, but I prefer a smooth finish... or a very fine textured finish that is semi-smooth. For sheer beauty I think I would like rosewood even though I have nothing to match it.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

Thanks for all the votes, Shacksters! We're definitely taking the results of the poll into consideration when discussing future finish options for our Ultra-series loudspeakers and Plus/Ultra subwoofers.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

I would say the black oak and gloss black would be my top picks for a finish, SVS has nailed that part well, but if I had to pick one more.. I would also say the dark cherry.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

If I decide to do this I would replace my L/C/R with the new Ultras in Rosewood. The rosewood is awesome.
