Future Song3-A Owner
« on: 5 Mar 2017, 01:47 pm »
I'm thrilled to report I am going to be getting a pair of Song3's. After reading the positive reviews here and on AVS, seeing the gorgeous finishes and working with Jim, I am convinced this will be a lifetime purchase.

The WAF factor was extremely high as she was all in on the purchase. The fun part now will be choosing the finish. The console is rustic, the wood has grey, silver and tan tones, some of which are mimicked in the tile and paint. Some sort of black-ish baffle with contrasting sides and front are our initial thoughts.

I look forward to Jim's ideas.

A rustic finish would look neat. I dont think I've seen that on Salks or any other speaker for that matter. If you did decide on a rustic finish consider the top coat options. By that I mean glossy vs flat. With the rustic finish I would lean towards flat.

 Boy, i can't wait for pics of these to show up!  I think Jim will make sure you're satisfied.  I'm a very happy owner!

Totally enjoying my Song3 "BEATs" . . . I can't imagine you'll be disappointed in your decision.  Picking and obsessing over the finish is half the fun  :thumb:

Here's a better pic of the finish on the wood. This is going to be a very fun challenge!

Don't know why the image went sideways, apologies.

Just a thought here, but can the face of the drawer come off? You could possibly send that to Jim so he has something in hand to accurately try to match. I'm sure he'll do it anyway but if he can have the actual finish to go by it might make it easier.

Another note to is that you might possible want to take a color from what's there and think about what would pair the best. There is some nice earth colors and grays in there. Stay on the same spectrum of colors either lighter or darker.

Enjoy.

That is a great idea, thanks! We will definitely do that.

Before dismantling your furniture, give Jim some credit to be able to match via a nice camera photo. He's done that many times. Talk to him.

Ay yo, what if he wants to dismantle his furniture? He seems pretty excited about it and I'm excited for him!  :green:

It was just a thought in case he couldn't produce an accurate picture of the color.

Well Jim has done some pretty accurate work just through photos before. Why make it easy on him? :lol:

No current speakers. Prior speakers did not travel in the move.

Jim is working with the pictures and has an idea based on a standard veneer. Excitement level is at 11.

It's a great little speaker. A tough choice between these and some of the nice bookshelf speakers.

Funny you say that because my quest started with looking at bookshelves, but one listening session with one brand of speakers quickly changed the direction to towers.

I am curious and excited to see what Jim will come up with. He recommended curly maple for the veneer.

I'm thinking about a pair just to have in the living room in some cool veneer because they are so kuhl. I'll have to call Jim to see what he has cooking for new stuff.
The nice thing is that the finish is great and the speakers sound even better than they look!
