DOH!!!! my bad. I guess you would know better than I. How about some pictures so the fine folks at HTS can see a bit more of the fine craftsmanship and beauty come out of Salk Sound.

Booya! Those are so gorgeous! Brazilian rosewood is what I had initially picked, but it tipped the price scales for me. It looks amazing on your cabinets bro! Thanks for the teaser pics - you never can have too many out there.

Re: Speaker quest (listening reviews included)

Hey guys, I know I haven't been around in a while, but I thought I would stop in and say thanks for the comments in my absence. I have been busy collecting components for my still yet to arrive HT3s. I know, it seems like a long wait, but keep in mind that Salk's woofer supplier recently went bankrupt, so the wait has been abnormally long. Now that Jim managed to get all the woofer business sorted out, he is expecting the first batch of the new ones this week. Dennis Murphy tweaked his original crossovers for the new woofs and assured me that they are everything that the TC Sounds predecessor was before it.

I know I have really let this thread fall by the wayside , but I had stopped auditioning and found my speakers so I have been waiting patiently, but the day is getting close, and I am getting very anxious! I will come back and post pics of them when they arrive. But i have to say that it has been a very fun journey!


Cheers,
Greg


(On a side note, Jim posted a week or two ago about some SongTowers that he was preparing for delivery by Christmas. I think the ribbon tweeter version may be gone already, and I am not sure about the others, but he had 5 or 6 pairs ready to ship out for those last minute speaker shoppers)

Thanks for a great series of posts. They got me thinking about the ever present tension between desired quality and budget. Even though your goals are different from mine, it was educational to see the auditioning process through your eyes (ears?).

Also, it got me to pull out Abbey Road and listen to it again. I'd forgotten how good that album is.

I Havent heard much speakers, but you should really stay away from B&W speakers under the 800 series..
I've heard the 683/684 in many occasion's and was always suprised of their mediocrity.
I've never heard those speakers myself but do know they have several happy owners. Buying speakers is a bit like buying a fine wine or micro brew. I love a good belgian ale or stout, but others like plain old domestic pilser. How does the saying go, one man's trash is another man's treasure or something??

Round 12


Salk Veracity HT3(starting at $4499)

not the actual ones I heard today but I love this veneer


....... Full, rich, smooth, clear.... sublime. A couple hits on the triangle ring through clean and clear. When the guitar came in I got the chills AGAIN (this is ridiculous, I want them) the tone is absolutely amazing. I ended with a little electronic music and an expansive atmosphere opened up in front and all around me. DJ Krush’s manufactured universe runs deep. Detailed highs, full, deep bass, pure sweet mids... these speakers leave very little room to want more.
These are one of the nicest looking speakers that you have auditioned so far in my opinion, Its a shame that they cost what they do. Are you thinking that this pair may be the ones you get?
Fantastic reviews so far.
