Hooray, another contest :)

1) Do you like this finish?

Yes, it looks great.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this?

I'd like to see some wood finishes, or orbs made of wood. Bamboo, rosenut, light cherry, dark cherry, etc.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)?

Matching finishes to the wood mentioned above.

1) Do you like this finish?

Actually quite a bit, I like the distinct hammered look, don't recall seeing other speakers in a finish like this.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this?

I would certainly expand this line if possible, different metal hammered finishes would look nice.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)?

I suspect many people purchasing Orb Audio equipment are concerned about aesthetics, therefore I think the sub should match the speakers. Since these are a metal finish, I would be interested to see what kind of subwoofer cabinets could be constructed out of wood, then perhaps cover it with a matching metallic finish somehow. Could be chintzy done poorly, could be classy done well.

Contest Questions:
Orb Audio would like to get your input to help them continue to serve you and your audio needs. Please help them (and enter) by answering the following questions in your post:

1) Do you like this finish? Absolutely. This kind of finish would conceal dust buildup very well and doesn't look like the pits are too sharp to prevent thorough cleaning. It would also fit with my preferred decor perfectly. Amazing!

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this? For people who like lighter tones, a similar texture with a white or very light grey finish would be incredible.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)? A subwoofer with a finish like this would ooze beauty into any setup.

1) Do you like this finish? Yes, it looks antique.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this? This same finish with maybe some blueish tones. Like a copper pot that has tarnish on it. I feel this would go well with a room with brown couches.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)? Same as question 2. Matching the speakers and sub color.

1) Do you like this finish?
Yes, very steampunk.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this?
I don't picture too many of these kind of finishes ending up in the living room, but in a desk/office setting, a weathered brass might look nice.


3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)?

I haven't yet founds a subwoofer that I actually want to look at, but I'd love to see a cylinder with a metal finish of some kind. Something that looks like standing art instead of a box.

1) Do you like this finish?
Yes, the finish looks great. It's not like everything else out there.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this?
A wood finish would be great. I also think due to the artistic look of the speakers, you guys could have a designer collection and have designs on it. Possibly a design by a well known artist or something simple to build a little character. Good selling point to the wives :) haha Also, you can never go wrong with a Piano Black finish.

3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)?
I would say the same colors as the speakers. If it's a smaller subwoofer, then put a design on it too.

Something in a neutral gray/silver to match computer cases.

1) Do you like this finish?

Yeah, I think that's an awesome finish. I think it'd go great in a room that has a lot of either hyper-modern furnishings or almost a neolithic collection of adornments. I like that the shell of the speaker looks almost like it was hammered out by hand.

2) What other finishes would you like to see in a speaker like this?

I think a pewter finish along the lines of this would be pretty cool, too. Or an antique silver finish like this where you replace the bronze parts with an antique silver.

On the flip side, a highly reflective, almost mirror-ized finish... super-chrome, would be cool, too.


3) What color would you most like to see offered for a subwoofer (in addition to black)?

Bird's Eye Maple. That'd be more of a veneer.

Though it'd also be cool to do what Pro-Ject has done with their turntables and offer them in a highly reflective, bright, plastic finish in primary colors.

Thanks for the opportunity.

1) The finish is "OK" to me. I prefer a smoother, more reflective finish that fits my current interior decor better.

2) A piano black finish and a metallic finish.

3) A deep cherry. I have no use for that coloring, but, it's beautiful to look at when done right. These would also be great:
Cocobolo Rosewood
Brazilian Rosewood
Satinwood
