My advice? Spend extra on the walnut - at least, if it's your TV stand. If not, then go with cherry or sapele instead, or a stained wood.
If it IS your TV stand, my advice is to go with the walnut. That's going to be one of the focal points of your home for years, maybe decades. Sure, it may be another $50 or $100 right now (at least, that's what the price difference would be between that and cherry where I live), but you spend it once and enjoy it for a loooong time. In a year or two, that $100 you saved or didn't save won't matter: And you'll still have a beautiful TV stand.
EDIT: Your pricing seems pretty close to what I'm working with in the central valley of California. And my advice comes from my experience with my own coffee table, built when I was trying to be as budget-conscious as possible. As a result, there are little details about the table that still bug me a little two years after building it, when an extra $50 would have alleviated those issues completely.
