Picked up my salk HT3's and HT surround system last week. My wife stayed up with me to hook them up, ran new speaker wire and mounte the back surrounds, then played and played them.
Sound is amazing, a clarity of the highs and midrange that have to be heard to be appreciated.
Use for both 2 channel stereo and HT
Panasonic 65" plasmaPZ750U
Integra DTC 9.8
Halo Parasound A51
panasonic DMP -30,
Oppo DV-980 (SACD, DVD-A)
Dish DVR 622
Marantz CD 5001 (for 2 channel)
Blue jeans speaker wire
Halo has plenty of power to drive these HT3's, plan to add benchmark DAC for the 2 channel.
As you hopefully can see, I needed the back surrounds to mount flush high on the wall. Jim designed and built a modified HT1 with down facing port.
