Curly maple with silver gray and pure stain. It will be a non-uniform finish.

How might the Song 3-A compare to supercharged Songtower?
Would these overpower a 100 sqft condo?

Jim is the best person to talk to about that.  Call the number on Salk's website.  Be careful though, I just called to order a tshirt.....next thing I know I'm purchasing Song3s.

The Salk circle has been rather quiet lately.  So I'd thought I'd share that I placed my Song3-A order last Friday! :D  I'm going with a white automotive finish.  Not sure if it matters which one.  I'm currently leaning towards Lexus Eminent White Pearl.  Any comments on which white paint?

In the meantime, I'm trying to sell my HT3s.

I bet they'll be gorgeous! This is with the standard black grill?

White is nice!





You picked the right version in my opinion. I really liked the Raal and Accuton together in this unit.

Hmmm.  Good question.  I don't normally use my grills.  But in the new place, I may need to.  Perhaps I should ask Jim for white grills?

Glad you responded since I thought you had white Exoticas.  Did you get a particular white paint?

I deliberated on what combination of tweeter (RAAL, Beryllium) and midrange (Accuton, Audio Technology, Eton, bamboo) to get.  I also asked Jim.  In the end, I decided on the Song3-A since I had heard it, the success Jim has had with the RAAL/Accuton combination in some of his other speakers, and it was a standard combination he already offered on his website.

Well I searched hard for a "white" metallic color. I learned from my wife how whites can be gray, green, yellow in tint. Ended up with Hyundai metallic white tri-coat after pouring through all the paint books at the local NAPA store. We used natural light and fluorescent to compare and contrast the whites until we found one that worked in both.
