Sometimes if one takes pictures with an iPhone they can be that way (and other things too)

Those speakers are fantastic

I bet they sound amazing, Is this part of a 5 or 7 speaker bed layer for HT?

Do you happen to know the dimensions of the speaker?  Jimdoesnt have the center channel up on his site yet.

When I talked to him last may he said he was working on 2 new center channels so this is obviously 1 of them. I'm hoping one is to compliment the encores and beats.

Also besides the satori Be tweeter what do the midrange and woofer section consist of.

You can probably guess why I'm asking all these questions,

What a great system you have

At the Salk website you can go and search for a finish in their gallery:

I guess one must just go to the selection page - https://www.salksound.com/gallery.php

and if on 'Custom' finishes one selects 'Bubinga' and 'Any' for every other selection you get a result.

Upload the photo to your gallery first. There you can rotate the image. Then use select and insert from gallery. The speakers are gorgeous.

These were done in burled walnut and hand-rubbed to a high gloss finish.  The pictures of the SS9.5's have too much red in them.

Here is a picture with more accurate color:



And a close up...

Jim,
Those speakers are beautiful.

I'm 9-12 months away from ordering but here is my plan,( by way of a lot of help from the guys here back last May/June.)

I'm going to get the Song 3 encores with either this center channel or another based on the satori tweeter and eaton midrange that I think Jim is working on. (I could be mistaken).
For surrounds I was looking at 2 pairs of Song surround plusses for side and back surrounds but then noticed the the song bird floor standers are the same price so I need to talk to Jim to see what he thinks

Im going to get 2 subs and 6 in ceiling Atmos speakers but no clue which ones yet.
