I honestly don't know! It may have to do with the light stain that really highlights the maple.

It is the name of the color as chosen by the manufacturer.  We tested with two separate gray stains and two other stains to add color (corn and pure).  It turned out that a combination of silver gray and pure came the closest to the look we were after.  We also selectively used some black and orange aniline dyes in the topcoat as well.

Love the form factor of this 3 way.  It just looks right.

And from ALL the pics I see of Jim's work, you will LOVE the finish in person!

This is so true. I absolutely love how they look: without the grills they look purposeful and elegant; with the grills they simply look elegant. I like how they look with the grills mor than I thought they would. Pics will come soon.

The finish Jim and his team came up with fits very well in our eclectic setting.

I was just thinking after reading all about the Song3 BEATS, that a similar version with a RAAL instead would be awesome.

Two questions emerge:

1. Would the AT mid "play nice" with the RAAL?

2. Would Mr. Salk risk producing a speaker that could become known as RAATS? 

I bet it would sound amazing.

I had that exact combination in a pair of Silks . . . known now as the Silk AT's . . . and without a doubt, YES, they were amazing together.  That was my first intention when purchasing the BEAT's but I decided to go with the beryllium tweeter instead.  I have often wondered what the RAAL would have sounded like in this design.

Awesome!  Thanks for the reply.  I wonder who is gonna be the first to order it this way?  (Maybe me!)

Dear Audiophiles! :)

I am considering the Song3-A’s and have a few questions for prospective buyers and happy owners:

What drivers have you chosen for your speakers? :scratch:

Has anyone auditioned the Song3-A’s at fairly low listening levels (say 65-75 dB) in a mid-field situation such as the listener at 7 to 8 feet from the speakers? :scratch:

What distances from the side and back boundaries did you find optimal? :scratch:

Would you consider PASS Labs XA30.5 amp adequate for driving the Song3-A’s? :scratch:

Please chime in! :)
