New Song 3s, many pics of these and opinions have been been posted here (by more experienced folks than myself)  but for people that haven’t had the pleasure of getting Salks I thought it would be helpful to share some of the small details that you wouldn’t necessarily get to see otherwise (construction of the grills, packaging, hardware, plinth details, included microfiber cloth, piece of foam for between the speaker and plinth   etc.) jim sends these out with love! These replaced my WOW1s and are the first time I’ve seen one of Jim’s burst and dyed finishes in person and even the wife thinks that they’re beautiful (I still hear about our vandersteens I had 20 years ago when we met lol)
Unfortunately my tube amp needs a service so I borrowed an Onkyo receiver just to get them running and even on 100 watts of a low priced receiver they fill the fairly large room (25x15x16 foot ceilings) and sound fantastic (I’m no Julian Hirsch or steve guttenberg but I will update when I get my tube amp back). Thanks Jim!

Congrats! They are stunning!  I can't wait for my 3A's to get here. I had no idea that grills came with them.   Veneer?

Look great. Love the 3's. 3A's are my favorites.

To be clear, MARY is THE shipping department. While Jim's a nice guy and all, the love you get is really from Mary!!

Thanks Bubba, have been eyeing a PrimaLuna for the collection...400 is serious kit.

Thanks AB, yeah the grills come with all Salks - these are a standard veneer "Curly maple with smokey gray finish and burst edges". Jim suggested that the maple goes better with the smoked gray than the cherry which I had on my Wow1s.

They look great!
Thanks!

He's a pretty nice guy.   But Mary runs the show.   Happy 2021 everyone!

Those are sweet! Bet they sound sweet too.
Salk is on my must own list before I die. One day.
