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:

when is it better to use room gain compensation instead of PEQs? assuming one has enough PEQs, can't room gain be controlled with PEQs?
Having just got my first of hopefully 2 SB13u, i've left the room gain control alone, and done all my tuning using PEQs, but am wondering if I'd be better...
SVS PB1000 and SB1000 Subwoofers
By Jim Wilson (theJman)
A little over a year ago I had contacted SVS and suggested they should add a subwoofer in the $500 range, something that had SVS quality but was a bit easier on the wallet than their current offerings were. The response...
SVS refers to its Prime Elevation speaker ($199/pair) as “the world’s most versatile home theater speaker.” While that sounds like blanket marketing jargon, it may in fact be true. Elevation, you see, is a highly adaptable and well-designed dynamo that delivers big on performance and...
