I have received a few requests to post pictures of new speakers.  These were just completed this week and have not yet been posted on my own site.



These Veracity HT3's were done in block mottled African cherry with Mexican cocobolo front baffles and trim.  They were part of this home theater system:



Here are some shots of the center channel:





These speakers are headed to Korea.

Here are some HT3's in white oak that have been dyed black:



The client requested them without solid wood front baffles.

Marble's speakers should be done this week and I will post pics as soon as they are assembled.  Others will follow shortly thereafter.

Jim sent me a picture of my speakers under construction and the Ebony looks absolutely insane. This is like no Ebony you have seen before (trust me on this). :notworthy:

The baffles will be figured Claro walnut. I am sure that Jim will post completed photos when they are ready to show off.

Outstanding job Jim :!:

The Claro Walnut is super nice IMHO.  My speakers are possibly going to be Japanese tamo ash stained black. Here's the wood:

Jim,
    They look ...."Fabulous" !!!! :hyper: [/list:u]
      But I'm not surprised....I've seen George's speakers up close and personal....nice job !!!! :D [/list:u]
        And...not only do the look great....they sound great as well !!!! 8) [/list:u]
          I'll be watching for your next set of photo's...Rob's, Bryan's, and Gordon's speakers (those I know of). I know what it's like waiting for things to arrive, but Jim's speakers are well worth the wait.[/list:u]
            Kind of makes me wish I had a bigger sound room..... :? [/list:u]

Walls are highly overrated. Are you going to let something like sheetrock and studs stand in your way of audio nirvana? :rotflmao:

Well...I'm surposed to move...at least that's what my wife says :lol: ....just have not gotten around to cleaning things up and packing things. Who's got time when your working all the time. :? (she's had it with living in NY...wants that country air... :P ).
    So...some time in the future....I'll be moving. And when I do, it will have a sound room big enough for at least a few systems....nice !!!! :lol: [/list:u]

These speakers are totally STUNNING! I have not read much about them (besides the Salk website).

Can somebody who owns these please post a review. If one exists maybe somebody could supply a link. Thanks!

Cheers,
Bill

    Here's my short review:

    I liked the speakers so much, I bought them!

    My wife likes them so much, that once I sell a bunch of my extra gear I am buying a second pair of HT3's!!

    Ok Wolfy, I will write something up in the next week.

    I also need to write reviews for the following gear:

    TacT RCS 2.2x
    McCormack DNA-500

        High WAF...its the real deal as the photo's show...a win-win for both sexes.. :lol: . They look and sounded excellent....and at George's, sounded even better without the sub when we were comparing speakers. :) [/list:u]
