I have a pair of Silk AT's that I ordered never have heard any Salk speakers either. I took a leap of faith, but with all the positive reviews I think we are very safe with our decisions. I have my eye one the Song 3 as well for an upgrade to another system. See how things go for next year. Good luck with the wait, I think I am just a little over half way there on my build.
Thanks for your comment. That's another one of those things that you can't do when you are flying blind and that is assess the merits of two similar options like the Silks and the Silk ATs. Since I have a 60 Watt tube hybrid amp, and haven't made a decision to go up to 100 or 200 watts (yet) I am wondering if it might be better to consider the ATs as they have a bit more sensitivity. My old but lovely but too big and too heavy Meadowlarks are 88 db and play as loud as I would ever want with 60 watts. The ATs appear to be better suited for my current amp. I feel like Hamlet these days. Joe Hamlet
Woodman:How do you rate the bass of the Silk ATs? On paper its about a 3HZ difference (deeper with the regular Silks) with a give back of about 3db in sensitivity (to the ATs). But a lot of speakers out there are at about 47-50HZ which I read have good to very good bass performance for "real world" acoustic music listening, which for me means classical and acoustic jazz. I have no idea what 3 HZ really translates to in actual listening. I get that the regular Silks are "the best" at bass; but is there really that much of a difference with the ATs? I am not suggesting you know, but I am just asking whether you find the bass satisfying without a sub. Thanks,Joe
