No rocket I ever had could stand up to Salk speakers so maybe it is your system synergy that brings you to that decision. The Rockets are good speakers so don;t get me wrong, but the Salks just smacked them down in my 2 systems. That's why I don't own Rockets any longer. Both have great customer support as well. And you actually wait less time from Jim than AV123 to get speakers.
Again it is cool you like your speakers but in A SMACK down I doubt you did half of what I did over the past 3 weeks. Im not even trashing the salks but man people get a whole bunch of empty and 100% subjective opinion just to defend what they own.....sigh
Heck, I doubt many ever ran FR plots or even know what they are.
Penngray - this is totally incorrect. The ST's are $700 more. That can mean the world as for as performance differences go. That's like a $1500 difference in the B&M world. A speaker engineer can do a lot more with an extra $1500 added to the speaker budget.
Not arguing the B&M at all, I think my opinion about ID on here is pretty obvious
Meaning, I 100% agree with you.
How do you figure this one out? The ST's start at $1695. considering they are from the same company I would say they are a solid step up from their $1K cousins...
The MTMs are $1400!! so it IS IN THE SAME $$$/performance range and the HTS have those very nice ribbon tweeters. I think you have NO IDEA about the HTS and how they are built...they are CUSTOM BUILT with top end crossovers and tweeters!!
I actually have the MTs that are $1K, the only difference between the MTMs and the MTs is really just the SPL and what rooms they can fill with sound.
All that matters is that you are happy. Enjoy bud!
Thanks, everything is subjective. I just hate the whole attitude that some people have thinking that only one person is building great products. Jim Salk is building great products but so its Mark over at AV123 and my point was that I demoed both products in house and I didnt choose the Salks in the end."They easily stand up to $3000 speakers and in most cases they still sound better. I think that it is safe to say that Jim doesn't have a very high profit margin on the ST's. You are getting top quality parts and craftsmanship at a literally rock bottom price."
Every word in this statement has been said about Mark and AV123 Products so Salks are not unique, I was just trying to point that out so that we dont go off the subjective deepend. No need to go further, its purely subjective banter and it never goes anywhere.
Back to the Salk love fest!
