Anyone else think we should add a Mapbuilder or Frappr map to the first page where we can tag all these locations? Actually, it would be cool to use colored tags to indicate speaker models.

I wouldn't want to include any information other than a user name, speaker model, and city.
Excellent idea!!!
It would sure simplify locating a suitable audition...

I was about to buy a pair of Maggie 1.6s when I came across all the buzz on the SongTowers (in my price bracket of under $2K.) I'm 71 and this will be my last set of speakers so buying without listening is out of the question. Presently still enjoying my AR9s that I bought back in 1981. I want to buy one more set of speakers and one more car before it's over - me, that is.  :wink:

So....is there anyone within 100-150 miles of Little Rock, Arkansas, who would be good enough to demo their STs? I''d be happy to make a day of it and maybe bring some beer or wine for an hour of two of listening. Maybe someone in Memphis or down on the Texas border?

Anyway, I'd sure appreciate your help.

Hi All-

Interested in auditioning a set of HT3s in the Bay Area and based on this thread it looks like Koiman (Leon) is the nearest owner (in Antioch). I've sent him an email but I've not heard back from him thus far. Does anyone else have any other potential leads on HT3 owners in my general vicinity in the mean time?


Thanks for any responses.

Looking for anyone in the Tucson,Arizona area who owns any Salk speakers.
I am interested in auditioning Veracity QW speakers... I realize there are very few Veracity QW's in this forum.
I just want to hear the "Salk sound"... 

I would love to hear any model of Salk speaker...

My two systems:
Veracity QW's would replace my Apogee Centaur (circa 1990).

Trying to get hold of "Tod"(His moniker not name) from Tucson,Arizona.
 
Tod left me a message on 10-01-2009 with a very kind offer to audition his HT1s.
I replied to his message 10-06-2009. Have not heard from him.
I am hoping he will see this post and we can make an audition day and time.

For those living in South East Asia (excluding Australia), I may well be the only Salk representative! :wink:

I am now living in Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Come visit the new room that I built exclusively to house my two HT3, measuring 15 ft x 9 ft x 25 ft. Speakers are placed 8.5 ft apart, 8ft from the front wall, 3 ft from the side wall. I am sitting 7.5 ft from either speaker.



28 acoustic panels are spaced strategically behind the curtains. The subwoofer used is REL B1, crossed at 40Hz.

There is an audio group in Dallas you should get to know.  See the North Texas circle here on AC.  Those Maggies will need a ton of power to perform to their best and could benefit from some wall treatment behind them.  Having said that, I've hear them sound very, very good.  The Song Towers I have yet to hear but there is certainly enthusiastic buzz about them here and elsewhere.  Cheers.

Jim, can't believe you have clocked 1700+ posts on audiocircle  :o, and you're only here just over 2 years! The world is so small, I am exactly 9392 miles from Houston, but it's just one click away  :green:

Have fun listening.. :thumb:

Anyone in the DC metro area care to have a shootout with my Swan F2.2's?  I would love to compare to a pair of Salk's.

PM Dennis Murphy.  I'd bet he'd be game and could use his magic switching box for an instantaneous comparison.

Hey guys  :D

I am interested in auditioning a pair of Song Towers or HT2-TL's in the Houston area.  If anyone has a pair and is willing to allow me to take a listen, it would be awesome.  I live in Friendswood, but I would be willing to drive anywhere around the Houston area for a listen.

Thank You,
John
