The veneer finish is high quality. These are advertized as ‘walnut’, but i could not find anything that said whether that is wood veneer or plastic veneer. I rang auna, and i couldn’t get an answer from them them either, but i did discover their returns system looks very good, and returns are free (i think). I have a deep affection for wood, so i care about this. Now i have the speakers i can say that it is a plastic veneer, but it is a very, very good plastic veneer. Examining it closely i was not sure, and i had to go looking in the telltale places, e. From a distance of a foot it is impossible to tell that it is not real wood veneer. I say excellent because plastic veneer is far less vulnerable to damage, and that is a huge plus, one careless whiskey glass will not wreck them. Also a nice touch, the backs are also veneered, so they look good too, connector junk excepted. I will not comment too much on the sound; my damaged hearing should not be used to judge anything. Having said that it sounds good to me for bach piano, handel operas, schubert string quartets, telemann chamber music, 40’s tango, modern tango, blues. Good clarity, nice tone, good bass.
Very, very good speakers for the price. I have top of the range speakers elsewhere in the house but its a pleasure to listen to these and they look good as well. Lovely wood to compliment the house.
Much better than expected, im now speaker snob or hi-fi specialist, i added them to my sony str dn-1050 and they work.
Bought the 5 set pack before which had 2 dented speakers and all different shades of wood. This pack of 2 was a different shade again and also one of the speakers had a dent in the wood. Lots of packaging, maybe no quality checks during manufacture?.
