So the SongBirds arrived today, and they're BEAUTIFUL, works or art really. I hook them up, make sure the volume is all the way down on my amp and turn on my system. I hear a crackling sound from the left speaker, and I see the woofer slowly move from the in to the out position, and there's a burning smell. Weird. Next step, I turn the volume up slowly about quarter way, and start playing Blue Train. No sound from the left speaker, I'm freaking. Called Salk, got Jim on the line and long story short, after talking me through some steps, he figures the woofer is blown and he is sending me a replacement. I'm disappointed that I can't enjoy my SongBirds right away, but I really think it's cool that when you call Salk, you're more than likely going to get a hold of Jim.
