Numerous things, really. For one, everything I have read about them has been mostly positive. I like that they are custom built to whatever a customer may want or afford. That right there makes them. . . .extra personal? Plus, Jim Salk is generous, patient, and very down-to-earth. An absolute pleasure to deal with. Customer service on par with Axiom.

Mostly, I wanted a pair of speakers that were both gorgeous to see and listen to.

You dirty dog!


Ha ha, Chris you are one of the few on this forum that runs tube gear. I've always wanted to hear Manley gear (how's that for a set-up line for Bob?). I used to live in Chino, Ca where they are located. Didn't know that until after I moved away.

Yes, they are Seas Excel W18s and the ribbon tweeters are from RAAL.

The finish is a curly cherry, which, by the way, is a standard finish for Salk. How nice is that? Pictures don't do the finish and workmanship justice.

Just curious, but is his name pronounced like "gym sock," or is the L not silent?

Ha ha, I don't know? I've always pronounced the L, but I always get names wrong.

Thanks, 2x6!

They have made me a very happy camper in this audio hobby/addiction.

Thanks, Michael. Next time you are in AZ, let me know and I'll be glad to have you over.

It's based on a quarter wave transmission line design, I'm not an expert on it at all, but there is a lot of folded stuff inside. Ha, how's that for a technical explanation? laugh

My dad lives in Sierra Vista, so I either fly into PHX or Tuscan, depending on the flight times, but it's usually PHX. I'll definitely give you a shout next time I come though. Any good pubs close by? lol.. I need to show Dean how drinking is done as well....

So what's the white things against the wall? Base traps??
