These are contenders in more ways than just looks. A beautiful finish, indeed. Had the pleasure of listenin to music from some of my favorite records at a friend's house recently with some very fine equipment upstream. Thought I had jumped into an icy pond they were so awakening. Salk is an online manufacturer so the cost is much more manageable than most of the other speaks shown. Guess everyone knows that already (I'm kinda new). And it bears pointing out that those X-stats (in the photos with Bowser) are $800 bucks US. Nice thread.
PS- You video guys oughta get your speaks out from those walls for listening to music!
