Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

I voted for Walnut, since too many brands already offer rosewood and cherry. Monitor Audio and PSB have both shown that walnut can be nicely done, and not look reminiscent of the vinyl faux walnut that dominated the 80's.

That said, if SVS can pull off less run of the mill version of cherry/rosewood, I think they'd be great options.

A natural cherry, more along the lines of the cherry for the Quad L/L2 series speakers, would be great... and different from the very bright orange cherry most companies offer (think Aperion Verus).

Same with rosewood - something that isn't so bright red, but more natural in color would be nice to see (I believe Salk Sound has just what I'm thinking of here).

Burled maple would be cool too, but not sure it would be a bit hit with most consumers.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

I liked the darker red of the old Rosewood SVS's, but a nice dark walnut would be great as well. My Salamander rack is in a walnut finish and it would be great to get something to match with that.

Overall though, I just hope they bring a wood veneer finish back.

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

Interesting......


I was looking through some of the show reports from the Bristol show and came across this little beauty.



That is, of course, the UBS, in a nice walnut finish. Hopefully this means that the same finish will be coming stateside soon. I think offering a wood veneer with the Ultra series speakers (and here's to hoping on subs too), will be a boon for SVS. Less dusting/fingerprints than the gloss black, and a little more decor friendly for some than the black oak (especially on a speaker the size of the Ultra tower).

Link to blub.

So Mr. Mullen, anything you'd care to share?

Re: SVS Ultra Future Finish Poll

Those speakers do look pretty cool. I am guessing that the piano gloss black is the huge seller. I liked SVS previous colors on the M-series speakers, but in the end I went with gloss black. They just seem to go with everything. On another note, do they even make a gloss black veneer? I would assume the gloss black might be the hardest to make.

This walnut pair is just one example of several finishes we're evaluating - no firm decisions have been made yet on the next finish we'll offer in the Ultra line. I think walnut is very attractive, but with that said cherry or rosenut will likely be the most in demand.
