Salk vs. Revel vs. Ascend

Would love to hear opinions and evals from someone who has heard the Revel Performa 206/208, Salk STSC and the Sierra Towers (you can throw in the Phil Slim's too).

They are all very accurate great speakers. Most people would be very happy with any of those.

Obviously, owners of each brand will be biased towards that brand.

Those who favor B&M brands will probably favor the Revel.

Those who favor ID brands will probably favor the Salk & Ascend.

Anyone want to weigh in on the Triton 2's on this grouping?

I would lean towards the original 3 speaker brands. As was said earlier - you really can't go wrong with any of those three.

They all look great. Some other speaker brands I would look into within that price point are Funk Audio and Soundfield Audio.

Salk and Ascend has a nice line up. Big plus is also the seas driver.

You may also want to consider Funk Audio as well... another ID company The mid drivers are world class!
