I’ve decided to place an order for Cornwalls, but I can’t decide if I want cherry, walnut or black. The pictures on Klipsch web site suggests walnut to be more grainy and darker as compared with my current JBLs. Cherry is difficult, usually cherry veneer change colour with age, not very fond of those becoming more red. 


Walnut is typically on average a medium true brown, often with lighter swirls.  It has the most character on average but it varies greatly.  Cherry is a little lighter nowadays, with a slight red tint.  UV rays definitely turn the cherry veneer darker.  A-stock cherry is usually more uniform.  B-stock or special order cherry can have more aggressive character like quilted or almost flamy but typically not the multi-colored swirls like walnut.
