    I think you would like the Salk speakers .. I know i like the b1s better than the ascends.. But the ascends are still pretty good..

    We're kinda treading water as far as the virus goes.. We aren't getting hit real hard yet.. But with reopening it's tough to tell what's going to happen.. I figure everybody will get hit hard by about November..but that's the thing.. It's all speculation...

    Yea...I once asked Dave about doing a larger tower...like the Song 3...he's just set in his ways...his current approach has worked for many years...so why change.

    When I can make some room, I'd love to get the Salk WOW1 with sub or Song 3s for a dedicated music setup. I love the balance...I know the NrT domes walk a fine line but they're exceptional for movies.... for music though...I think... I'd appreciate a little less panache into the highest octaves...

    Take care and stay safe...from what my boy's tell me AZ hasn't been whacked that hard but restriction are in place...life around here is very slowly getting back to normal.

    I was impressed with Dennis' version of the b1s.. They became much clearer and even smoother... He turned a $300 pr of speakers into a set that could easily be mistaken for something twice or three times the price..
    I love az.. I am a native... I live in North central Phoenix.. I lived in mesa for 11 years a while back .. I worked at mesa country club for 10 years...it's a nice town...

    I understand that DM has modified one of your speakers. How did this mod change the characteristics of said speaker...positive or meh?

    Have you considered likewise doing the same to the Ascend? I know Dennis modified a set of 170se years ago and the owner had Dave give them a listen....obliviously yrs later Dave keeps voicing his speakers to his liking and not others...lol.

    Sending you a friend request....fwiw....since your in AZ. I have, 2 cousins...one is in Mesa, the other in Glendale...me and the missus drove down there while in LV last Dec...I love AZ and plan on heading back once this Covid fiasco is done.

    Take care....

    It's no problem really. I wish it wouldn't have gone so far out of bounds but things happened and it has been handled. Most importantly though, I appreciate your acknowledgement and apology. That, kind sir, is stepping up to the plate. Thank you! Now, let's get out there and have some fun!
