Price is the main problem. Real leather = real expensive.

Most of my piano black gloss speakers are more than a decade in use and still look great with minimal wear.
Kept them in the main living room for many years and later (past three) in a lounge and really no issue to keep in good nick.

I would love a leather finish or carbon fiber too. Even a mix of the two materials like in the BMW 760i - then soft LED accent lighting like the B&W Diamond system has in the tweeters. Industrial/futuristic.

Some sample paint jobs. Reflection like a mirror, so very hard taking pics.

Thanks a lot

Spoke to Morne a bit about these

Want to get the 200 bookshelves as fronts and then the centre as my space is a bit limited

Will they come in full packaging for transportation?

And what will chances be of a different color on order, and what would it be?
