Lurker here. I think I'm getting sucked into the happy vortex of Salk Sound.
I've been looking for speakers for primarily music listening, but also for TV and occasional movies. We recently moved and left all our speakers at the old house for the new owners (Mirage Omnisat system). Went to a BB with the wife, looking for bookshelves. The Magnolia room only had B&W to listen to so we started with a couple bookshelves and then added a sub and then listened (with our source material, Joan Osborne and Led Zeppelin) to 600 series towers. They sounded good, but none of the options blew me away. There was a noticeable difference in the different speakers, but I wasn't ready to pull the trigger since I at least wanted to research other options.
I don't recall my exact path to Salk, but I think I'm hooked before any listening or even seeing one in the flesh. I think I've read most of the reviews out there and have only reached 14 of these 327 pages. The information and passion of the folks here has factored into my enthusiasm. Its especially cool how Mssrs Salk and Murphy have given of their time to answer all manner of questions.
I suspect I would be thrilled with the SongBirds, but the STs and STRTs really have my interest. I love the idea of transparent, balanced sound. I love superior quality. I like the idea of maybe not needing a subwoofer. I love the idea of buying something once and being happy with it for a long long time. I love the ability to customize the speaker materials and finish. This could be key with the wife acceptance factor.
The room is ~17' x 30' x 9' ceilings, tile floors and not attenuation. The room opens to a kitchen behind the listeners. The speakers would be powered by a Marantz SR7200, rated at 130 W/channel at 6ohms. I sent a message to the Salk website, but have not yet received a response.
