What finish is more attractive: Wood or paint?

I took a good look at my Merlins last night and was really impressed with the paint job(Champagne). Gonna pick-up some "Mist-n-Shine" and have a ball.
Totally opinion driven. Woodworkers like myself are going to say wood is good.

Car lovers may like the painted look of Wilson and Merlin.
Sorry, this is a question directed to the distaf side. We may try and choose the component, aesthetics are down to the wife, so wood it is then. No Zu definition speakers for me.
I have the Ruby Heart Red's, love them.

Have to love wood too though, I can live with either.
