White is matte, but still “glows” off a large screen.



Gloss black is basically a big mirror.



Rosenut will still glow and have a gloss turbine head. Only way to hide the speakers is to have them behind your display plane. Either in walls, Acoustic transparent screen or a false wall.


White has been a massive success. We have a minimalist house and it gets so many likes from guests. Also matches the lights. Not sonically crucial but domestically essential

They portray a "blacker" image for sure, so they shine in the quiet passages.
