vote- best looking veenered monitors?


I would like everyone's thoughts on their view of the
most beautifully finished monitor in real veneer in the
$1500.00 price range.

My vote would be the Vienna Acoustics Haydn and the
Onix Reference 1 MkII.
you have to see Vienna's live, they really look like a nice piece of furniture (and very expensive). i've seen some of the speakers you've mentioned and they're not even close to any Vienna Acoustics line. don't forget, one of the VA co-owner is at the same time owner of fine furniture company, and you know Austria knows things or two about it!
Salk sound. Custom wood and finishes. The only downside is waiting to have your custom speakers built.
Castle speakers give you a choice of 8 furniture grade standard veneers but their special Yew finish is simply stunning.
No debate about it - the VA Haydn Grands in the new cherry finish. I've seen all of the above speakers (except the Salk) and the VA wins hands down. I don't own them but sure wish their sound qualities fit my wants. I'm tempted to buy a pair just for the aesthetics. This cherry finish is unlike anything else I've sever seen in speakers.
