After RMAF last October, we were contacted by Jim Clements of Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelitywww.hometheaterhifi.com. He heard the Exotica 3's at the show and wanted to know if he could review a pair.
Customers always come first. So it took a while to get a pair built for him. But we finally finished them.
Here are some pics...
Jim indicated he does thorough reviews and it would take him about 3 months to complete.
That review won't be coming for a while. There was damage done to one speaker so its been rerouted and is in the good hands of Salk for them to make a repair. Stuff happens! So for now I have one beautiful ST that I've been looking at for a couple of days. I am very impressed with the fit and finish of Salk's speakers. I'm used to seeing $5k and higher speakers with a nice finish - for the price of these speakers they are an outstanding value IMO. That they get such tremendous reviews for their sound quality only adds to the value.
Good things come to those who wait and I'm sure I'll be very happy once the repair is done and sent along to me. The plinths and center speaker arrive on the 25th.
As you can imagine, we get a lot more questions about the SongTowers than any other speaker we build. So we thought we'd try and put a video together that outlines the complete story and addresses many of the questions we are often asked. (Example: Will they work with my receiver?)
I made a few modifications to the video. Unfortunately, you can't "update" a video on YouTube. So the YouTube address has changed. Here is the new one...
Great video, from both a marketing standpoint and from a technical perspective. Bonus: Now I know how to pronounce Seas and Hiquphon!
Well, after the video was posted, someone emailed me to say that Hiquphon is pronounced "High Cue Fon." He told me it was no big deal since everyone seems to pronounce it the way I always have. Can't teach an old dog new tricks, so I'll keep pronouncing it the way I always have.
