Custom Jim Salk-Dennis Murphy Speakers
These started out at Philharmonic monitors (Dennis has his own speaker line called Philharmonic Audio – amazing stuff). I LOVED the sound, but wanted to convert them to towers 1) because I wanted a better box alignment (the original cabinets were undersized) and 2) because I wanted pretty towers in my living room.
I sent the monitors to Jim Salk, he created his own cabinet design for the drivers. The result is amazing. These speakers are EXTREMELY flat/neutral, with loads of detail, yet NEVER fatiguing. Actually, they strike that rare balance of being nice and smooth sounding while still allowing lively rock to sound energetic. Jim’s towers go a little deeper and sound bigger than when they were in monitor form. That said, they still dig every nuance out of my classical vinyl collection. I have used these for 2-channel stereo only and never needed a sub (YMMV).
OK, so why sell? New house with tiny space for stereo equals limited physical space for speakers and furniture.
Will be shipped in the original boxes from Jim. US shipping only at buyer’s expense. Local pickups are OK – I live in Virginia and am willing to drive about an hour or so to meet someone (from 22902).
