I'd love to hear how it sounds.

The design and component selection seems to be top shelf.

How is the crossover?
The 3-A is right in my wheel house, but I'm intrigued by the Encore as well...anxious to hear the response from the show....I'd have to hold off on the center for a while at this pricepoint, but I'm very much a 2 channel guy and even though my system will have two subs, I would consider the Encore if the performance was another level up from the 3-A.

Here's a link to Stereophile's coverage. Despite the anecdote, it sounds like the initially impression of both the Song3-A and Song3 Encores are overwhelmingly positive. Congrats to Jim and the Salk team.

Thanks for the link...Based on his past works, I expected them both to be well received.

I'll check it out shortly.

Another solid review on a short sample....3-A.

http://hometheaterhifi.com/features/...17-highlights/

Scroll down to the Schiit room comments.

For right now (next 3 to 4 mos) I can afford to put about $6k into speakers and I was initially thinking LCR, but 2 channel is about 70% is my listening habits. HT use is growing though so I will need a matching center...I don't think there is even a matching center for the 3-A or Encore yet anyway.

I was at Axpona this year and thought Jim (and Dennis) work sounded superb. Piano sounded as realistic in my opinion as any speakers at the show regardless of cost.

Price Adjustments Coming June 1st

We have not adjusted our speaker pricing over the past three years. During that time, parts costs have risen and we covered the difference. But it is time to take a look at pricing and adjust items where necessary.

What models will be affected and what increases are likely? We don't know at this time and probably won't until near the end of the month. But I would say that Song3 models will go up a bit since we now have a history to work with.

We thought it would be appreciated if we announced this in advance so that individuals contemplating a purchase would at least be aware of it.

Thanks for your consideration,

- Jim
