It's a shame that he cherry speakers didn't come out correctly. The main reason i even started looking at them is the their finish quality and their wood veneers.

Has anyone heard of philharmonic? I've been reading great things about their slim towers. How do they compare to the VG or VG2?

A black gloss demand lots of work to be done properly, and cannot be done over a veneer.

More than likely, after the Cherry failed quality control.
Aperion told the manufacture to start over and do them in black gloss, to get production going until they figure out the problem, with the Cherry veneer finish.

The Phil are very well regarded.
For music hard to beat, but will not have the slam has the Aperion for movie.
Many treads to read if you intend to go that way.

I didn't ask Aperion for details, but I suspect you are both right that they didn't receive then decide to refinish the speakers here in the US. As for how they refinished them from Cherry to Black, no idea. Perhaps I misunderstood the guy on the phone. Don't think so, but possible.
