While many like the high contrast exotic woods similar to what is shown in the photo, I think it would have a different and maybe more appealing look to some if it were ordered with a simpler and darker wood pattern (example - a similar wood finish as shown on the stock 5A in the photo). I know that as it is shown in the photo that it would have no WAF from my wife but in somethng more basic, it may. (Perhaps in the similar finish as the Piano in the photo).

Here are some photo exemplars of both styles of veneer. It's a slide show....http://philharmonicaudio.com/cabinets.html

MARGARITAS,
they're not just for breakfast anymore.

So I am looking into get the philharmonitors for an LCR setup. I am looking to replace my current speaker towers and center channel with something with more clarity and for viewing movies and TV with the occasional gaming and music. Will these work out well. My budget is around 1500 for all 3 speakers.

I moved a couple months ago and was lucky enough to get a place that allowed for multiple setups, unlike my last place. Now my Phil 3s are all by themselves out in the living room with about as optimal a placement as I could get them. I don't know if it is the better placement, the fact that the apartment is brand new/better acoustically than the old place, or some combination of the two but the Phil's sound better than ever. My GF has said a few times that she can't believe there's no sub hooked up and I agree. Which isn't to say the bass is overwhelming or bloated, the overall presentation is just better top to bottom. As it stands I'm running 3.0 in the living room and want to go to 5.0, but given how things sound right now I'm not really concerned about the .X.

In any case, more fun times with the Phil's.
ahblaza and Eternal Velocity like this.

And Thanksgiving greetings to all--particularly you, Mudslide. I'm very thankful for all the friends I've made with Philharmonic Audio, and the opportunity to share my passion with music lovers everywhere. It has been a good year.

That is what I have, and I am very happy with it. Will it be better than your current set? I have no idea without knowing your current setup.

Ooops guess I forgot that minor deal

I have edesign a6-6t6 towers and a6-mtm center. It sounds ok but I am looking to upgrade. I did just bite on some emptek towers and center to see how they are and if I'm not happy I will look for something else.
