If you were going to buy a pair of new loudspeakers this year and your chosen make and model was available in all the above finishes, what would be your first choice?

Feel free to post your second and third (or more choices, in decending order) below.

I can't make a single choice from your list...
I would choose any real wood veneer, although I have preferences in which one...
I would not chose any black finish...

FWIW, my most recent speaker purchases have been in Rosenut, and dark Cherry.

When I think back over the decades Walnut has consistently been my favourite. The new Dynaudio finished are beautiful.

I had a pair of Bosendorfer speakers in that finish. Very nice!
