Very Very Nice Enjoy Sebastian

Sweet looking set. I'm pretty sure my speakers are being made from the same flitch. I hope they look that good.

Jim,

These cabinets are superb looking. What type of veneer is this?

Regards,

Dennis

I'm not Jim, but I believe that is pepperwood burl.

A highly complimentary review of the Salk WOW1 was posted at InnerFidelity today. The reviewer was very impressed.

Congrats Jim.

It also appears that it's the only speaker review on that site which is remarkably similar to the stereophile website.

So similar, in fact, that the same people's names appear in the "Contact Us" section!

Well, the Veracity ST's arrived yesterday and I couldn't be more excited! I quickly unpacked them and just connected them real quick to hear them. All I can say for now, is HOLY CRAP!!! I've personally never heard anything better and I have yet to set them up properly. Me and the girlfriend were glued to the sweet spot until we got hungry. Both of our jaws dropped, it's a HUGE sq difference! I couldn't be happier, all i want to do is listen to all my music over again! I'll post more once I get these bad boys setup properly...

Awesome, glad to hear you're happy! I can't wait to be happy! All three of mine are at the "Final Inspection" stage, so it shouldn't be too much longer!

I have the same speakers and finish and all I could say when I set them up was WOW the BASS is fantastic.I just ordered the Super Charged Center to complete the front end. I have the Song Surrounds for the side and they also sound great for 5 CH Music and Bluray Movies.You will hear your new speakers sound even fuller in a few days.Best of luck and enjoy the Fantastic sound of Jim's newest speakers.

Looking at your previous posts, I see you have an XPA-5. I'm going to be driving mine with the same amplifier. I guess it's safe to say that you're happy with the combination?

I have XPA-2 driving the 2 Front speakers and the XPA-5 driving the other 5 speakers.Yes I like the XPA-5 but the XPA-2 is even much more dynamic sounding.I am looking into the Wyred4sound Mono blocks for the Veracity ST. You will love your new speakers as the AD on Salk site says it all about the sound.

The XPA-5 will have to do for now, as my budget was originally for 2 standard Songtowers, and I ended up with Veracity STs and a Supercharged Song Center!

You went the better route with the speakers, Ace. I'm currently powering mine with a Denon 4520 and there is plenty of power.

My AVR is an older Onkyo 703, and I've never really liked it. I plan on replacing it later this year, probably with the Denon X4000. Are you running Audyssey? I have some treatments in my room, but I'm interested to see the difference a good room correction system will make.

I just received a new Denon X4000 and added a Sherbourn 5-200 to power the speakers with. Was replacing an older Denon AVR-5800 and didn't want to downgrade on the amp so I knew the only real way to do that was separates.

Haven't hooked them up yet, just got them yesterday! Hoping I have time this weekend.

That Sherbourn amp is pretty much the same as the XPA-5, correct?

More or less, yes. It does come with a 10 year warranty though, versus 5 for the XPA-5. My main reason for buying it over the Emotiva was that the XPA-5 was not in stock and they had no idea when it would be available again.

I've had mine for 4 years with no problems, and I'm hoping that doesn't change. It's going to be given a more strenuous workout on a regular basis once my new speakers arrive, though!

Ace-

I will be trying Audyssey this week, haven't had a chance to set them up properly yet. However, they are amazing to listen to at the moment. Purchasing these speakers sight unseen was a nail bitter for three months, but the wait was more than worth it. Dropping 4k on speakers you never heard before, is not an easy task either. I now understand all the glowing reviews on Salk speakers, they are something to get your ears on. What a work of art... Thank you, Jim!!
