New Cornwall IVs, cherry, walnut or black in 2-Channel Home Audio Posted April 29, 2021 I agree on the Cherry. Mine were really light. I kind of liked them, having always had dark finishes like Walnut. They are three months old and are getting that nice grain contrast. They are darker yes but still have a natural look as opposed to stained which was like my Heresy III. I much prefer the natural Cherry. walnut is beautiful too. It is a tough choice. I was all ready to get Distressed Oak but I didn’t really like it in person. Black and the new grilles are a sharp contrast too. Tough decision . I’m glad I went with Cherry.
