Well, since CV spilled the beans on my new speakers I've been urged to post pics of them. Late last year I went temporarily insane and acquired a pair of Salk HT2-TL speakers. These were a bit of a dream of mine to own. . . .and, well, I'm still pinching myself. By far, the most stunning speakers I have ever had. On top of the beautiful finish, they produce an equally beautiful sound. Thanks to my temporary bout of insanity I have been happily listening to music almost everyday since last November.

My two channel set up:

Close up of the curly cherry finish (apologies as it's a bit out of focus on the edges, I opened the aperture all the way):

Sean, those are gorgeous, and I wish I could hear them in person. Have you had Dean over to check them out? I'm curious about those ribbon tweeters, too. I wonder if Axiom ever experiments with other manufacturers' drivers to see what kind of performance they can get out of them.

Congratulations on the temporary insanity. I can't wait to hear about future relapses.

Also, remind me what you're using for amplification.

Yeah, I meant to ask about the electronics as well!

Detailed and layered. First time I've heard a ribbon, too. Checking off that box on my audio "to hear" list!

Thanks Mark! I pretended to be a real photographer and broke out my tripod.

Good for you, Sean! Way cool! If I bought a pair of Salks, the first cd I'd listen to is The Vaccines.

BTW, you live in f'Phoenix! What in hell do you need a coat rack for? Or is that an ill-advised floor lamp?

Dean has not heard these yet, but I'd be more than happy to have him over for a listen. (Sorry, Dean, I don't think I want to risk transporting these to your place like I did with my other speakers. The Salks are even heavier!)

Right now I'm using my Odyssey Khartago amp and Etesian preamp. With the warm weather fast approaching here in Arizona, the tube amps will have to patiently wait their turn.

Ha ha, I hang my hats on the coat rack. It was a Christmas present. . . from my parents and they were here last weekend and I didn't want to hear, "We don't see the coat rack we bought you???"
