My wife's a furniture maker (unfortunately speaker cabinets don't come under HER definition of furniture) and I know she tends to often use solid wood edges in the same wood as the veneer used on the rest of the piece. If executed well, it's often difficult to pick with the untrained eye.
I agree completely that the corners in the picture linked to are actually solid wood and rounded over. There is a telltale line running vertically for to far a distance that is parallel to the edge.

That being said the advice on veneering the corners round is good. It is done routinely and it works well.

I recommend against DIY veneer softener, but softener *IS* what you're asking for. I use the product available at veneersupplies.com

Don't waste your time with the DIY product. Spend a couple bucks and you'll be pleased you did.
