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.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).

So Mr. Mullen, anything you'd care to share?
We're being very picky about grain pattern and fill/gloss levels. Walnut came out stunning and that's one of the reasons we had the confidence to display it at an audio show - even as a one-off. Some of the other wood veneer samples looked very good but we weren't totally blown away - so we'll keep working at it until more mainstream finishes like rosenut and cherry look just as sexy.Thanks for the reply. I think the Walnut looks great, if your looking for feedback. Along those lines, do you have any other images/finishes that you guys would like to get opinions on? I'm sure we'd all love to see any pic's of any finishes.
