Thank you for your reply, but I have had several speakers in that room,Focal 948 Aria,Tekton Pendragons, Ushers, Egglestonworks, they sounded good in there.

Will be replacing my venerable Boston Acoustics Lynnfield VR 950 towers and VR10 center with Song 3's and a Song 3 center.   :D

Replaced a pair of Aerial Acoustics 7T with a new pair of Salk BeATs and couldn’t be happier!

First Salk purchase: replaced the non-existent low end of my Kef R300 with a Salk Rythmik 12 Subwoofer. I love it.
Second Salk purchase: replaced the built in speakers on my dad's tv with a self-powered Salk SongTower. He loves it.
Third Salk purchase: replaced the Kef R300's with Veracity ST's. I strongly assume I will love them.

Replaced NHT 3.3’s (relegated to 2nd system) - picked up an original set of Veracity HT3’s. Couldn’t be happier.

@Ledhead26 - The Aerial Acoustics 7T is a pretty impressive speaker.  I auditioned a pair years ago and was impressed.  I have some 3A Beats on order.  Can you elaborate on the differences and what you like more about the Beats?

Replacing Paradigm Studio 100 v5.  It's a very good speaker, but the Salk is in a different league.

Unlikely to replace them but I may soon compare a pair of Salk’s to PBN Montana SPi’s, which would be a tough test indeed... they are basically my “forever” speakers... I have preferred their sound even to newer PBN’s. Super clear midrange, abundant tight bass and sweet highs. Should be interesting!

New to the forum...pretty jacked up!  Been reading up on lots of speakers and really captivated by Salk and reviews from owners. Bought Wharfedale Lintons in March...they replaced 34 year old Phase Techs and even older B&O bookshelfs.  Drove 15 hours, one way, to listen to BeAT's and the white Veracity's available on website.  Really enjoyed meeting Jim, Mary and getting the tour.  Love the Song3 BeATs!! Gave Jim a check before driving back South and look forward to going back in March, probably, to pick them up! Thanks to all of you and your comments about the speakers or never would have made the drive to listen!  I know will be BIG upgrade from the Lintons!

New to the forum. I recently purchased a pair of Veracity ST monitors.  I have owned several speakers over years and these are special. These replaced a pair of Alta Rhea. What a difference! The Veracity’s are in a class above the Altas, in every aspect. Clarity, detail (specially in the midrange), overall sound quality.
Only have less than 75 hours on them,  can’t wait until I get more time on them.
Thank you Jim.

After moving into a house with a much larger open concept living room/kitchen, I replaced my (new to me) Totem Rainmakers with (new to me) Salk Songtower QWT. Though I think the Rainmakers are a great speaker, the Salks provide better sound in the larger room and, as a speaker that costs about twice as much as the Rainmaker, is notably better across the board. The Totem tweeter is a double-edged sword that does provide some extra sparkle sometimes, but also can be too bright occasionally. I had been intrigued by Salk Sound and Philharmonic Audio for many years and I'm so happy to finally have a chance to enjoy to the Songtowers.

Loved the Dunlavy IV except for size.
The SS 9.5 must be really good

I had the IVs (Blk) initially which I replaced with the IVAs (Nat Oak).
Sonicaly the IVAs are superior to the IV in every way especially driver integration.
Of course the IVA was priced twice as much, $8000 vs $4000.
Both IV & IVA are 6' tall and weigh 180lbs each.
