Got my SongTower's today. Placed my order late February. Jim got my sample March 1. They shipped out March 28. There were some issues with DHL, which is why they took so long to make their way out to California. I think they cost a little over $100 to ship all the way out here.
Anyway, I've got pictures
for you all to feast on. Hopefully you can see the care in which these speakers were packaged. They arrived in perfect condition and were immediately mated to my Emotiva XPA-5. The finish is walnut with a slightly custom stain to match my sample.
I decided on the SongTowers from reading reviews from people like Nuance and from comparisons to other models which I had heard. That's right, I didn't hear these things before I pulled the trigger! After hearing them today, I have zero regrets about the decision. Well, almost zero-- I should have ordered a matching center and surrounds!
I'll probably get around to posting a more in-depth review later. In the mean time, my initial reaction is very favorable. I am pleasantly surprised by the bass response. A few times, I thought my neighbor had his sub cranked. Then, I realized it was my ST's
I'll gladly demo these to anybody who finds him or herself in the San Francisco Bay Area. Just PM me.
Thanks, Jim! I look forward to being your customer again shortly.
