What does everybody have on order? Waiting room.
« on: 19 Dec 2020, 10:33 am »
I don’t believe I’ve seen a “Waiting room” thread here - if ok with jim thought it would be fun. Currently have a  pair of Song 3s in silver Gray burst over maple that were assembled yesterday. These will replace my WOW1s in our new living room. Can’t wait, I’ve wanted 3 way speakers since I was a kid putting together a Hafler kit. Embarrassed to say how often I check the tracker lol.

Anybody else?

I have a  pair of Jim’s new Soungtower II on order.  I have always felt the original Songtowers were one of the best audio values ever.  If the new ones are better yet, they should be spectacular.

I have a set of Encore's on order that I'm very excited about.  Won't reveal the details about them just yet.  I'm currently 7 weeks in and am at 23% completion.  And all I can say right now is that the suspense is killing me!   Also embarrassed to say how often I check my status daily.

Yep, for sure I remember what the wait was like. Once my Soundscape 8 order was placed the weeks seemed to slow down. Was very difficult to not check on the progress!

Hello Salksters.  This is my first post here. 

I am anxiously waiting for the completion of a pair of Salk BMR Monitors in curly maple, dyed rose red.  I've had many different speakers since my first system in 1980.  However, these BMRs will be my first to not be purchased second-hand, or otherwise deeply discounted.

A follow-up to my post above. 

There is a sticky topic to tell what speakers you are replacing with Salks.  I'm waiting to chime in there until I get my BMRs and can compare them to my trusty Bowers & Wilkins DM602 mains.  I really like my B&Ws.  The tweeters failed from playing Tidal, volume differences when a non-MQA song was followed by a (much louder) MQA encoded song...  I took the opportunity to upgrade to the better OEM tweeter w/ wave guide. 

My sub is a Rythmik F15HP. 

Amp is a Denon AVR-X5200W, was rated 140 watts @ 8 ohms.  I hope it will drive the BMRs to descent levels.  My current speakers are slightly more efficient but my critical listening is practically near-field at 10' to 11'.

My system does home theater duty but music is what I care about most.  My main source of music is Amazon HD on a MacBook via USB to a S.M.S.L. M500 DAC.  I used to listen to more vinyl but the ease and the selection of music streaming has won me over.
