    Go to internet.  Find bank.  Get another credit card.  Buy Both.
    Problem solved!

    Ohh, you must have done my suggestion a few too many times.

    But I had a better idea. I knocked over a liquor store. Always wanted to do it. My BB gun looks so real. I got $46.
    My lawyer asked me (during visiting hours) why I did such a crazy thing. I adjusted my orange jumpsuit and proudly replied: "The lush, euphonic ZMF Atticus--THAT'S why!"

    I bought Eikon, Atticus and am thinking of getting Omni. Cash for all of them thanks to saving up for such purchases.

    I think Zach is going to need Presidential recognition for single handedly kick starting the economy.

    Hey Zach (or whomever has been fortunate enough to demo these cans), I had a question about the color/finish of the cherry wood...
    The website images feature a very deep, rich red color whereas every photo of cherry Omnis (HPFNAO) I have seen are of a much more neutral tan color (see below for comparison). Is the cherry used for the Atticus/Eikon as deep a red as the website photos depict or has the saturation just been boosted to accentuate the color? (Disclaimer: I realize the natural variations of wood can result in differing shades, etc.)
    The reason I ask is I think I would prefer the lighter weight of the cherry, however I prefer the more neutral color of the Padauk... so if the cherry was actually less red in person that would be a plus for me [​IMG]

    The Red is the Padauk. The Tan is the Cherry.

    Oh boy! I'm very happy and slightly embarrassed. Thanks for clearing that up

    Just one point about cherry--discussed several times in this string--cherry naturally darkens somewhat over time, a result of exposure to UV radiation in sunlight. Cherry turns a rather beautiful medium brown hue that I prefer vs the tan color of new cherry.
    It's possible to stop this darkening by storing the headphones away from light, but IMO that's crazy. I think cherry gets more beautiful & interesting when it darkens.
    BTW, this same darkening effect happens to most woods, to at least some degree. But cherry is well known for how evenly and prettily it darkens.

    I don't think it will ever get as dark as Paduk though. The brown is still lighter than the Paduk red.
  12. Pharmaboy
    You're absolutely right. The 2 woods are totally different.
    Raw cherry is on the brown continuum, starting out tan/very lt. brown, then becoming medium brown, subtle & rich. Raw padauk is on the brown/red continuum--lt. to medium brown w/a red cast. I haven't seen aged/darkened padauk, but I've heard it becomes more of a cordovan color--rich red/brown.
    And it may be that some naturally darker woods don't darken as significantly as cherry. I'd have to do research that.
