1) Do you like this finish? The quality of the finish in this “Hammered Earth” color is impressive. It seems very practical; fewer problems with fingerprints, visible dust, etc.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this? A dark, clearcoated glossy metallic (with depth) would be interesting; like some high-quality Lexus paint jobs. But, then again, there's a problem with fingerprints. The hammered finish is great.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)? A charcoal grey, perhaps; or, nice woodgrain. Hopefully, the sub would actually match the satellite speakers, though it might be difficult to have a nice looking ROUND speaker with woodgrain that doesn't look fake.
