Hey Everyone, I’m the guy who hosted Greg (aka funkmonkey) for his SongTowers audition. Despite what you may have heard
, Greg is a gentleman and you should have no hesitation in admitting him to your home if he wants to hear your speakers.
Greg has performed a great service to this community by posting his notes on the many speakers he’s listened to. It’s rare to see a comparison done through a single pair of ears by someone who is thorough and careful in his methods. Greg’s appraisal of the SongTowers was quite fair and unbiased. You can believe what Greg says, IMO.
Me on the other hand: you probably don’t want to listen to me because I’m unabashedly biased in favor of the speakers I already own: the SongTowers are an incredible value!
If you are in the mood for some blatant SongTower homerism, check out my own write-up on the Salk Forum. (I'll post a link later).
A couple of minor factual corrections to Greg’s review. My son is 9, actually
. My digital source is a Slim Devices Squeezebox 3 modified by Vinnie Rossi of Red Wine Audio. The modifications include upgrading of the internal circuitry, capacitors, and op amps, and the addition of a battery power supply. The SB3 plays lossless audio files which are streamed wirelessly from a hard drive in my bedroom.
Greg, good luck on your continuing quest, and I’ll look forward to finding out your final choice.
