Lots of Nice HT3 speakers are going places now that Jim has the drivers to finish them up. My V3s have arrived:
These speakers are suburb. I hear detail in music that I was not hearing before. They will play loud without distorting while being powered by the Cary Cinema 5 amp, and are also very balanced, clear and clean at low volume settings. I had Jim make some custom changes. First, you will see that the black baffle stops short similar to the Songtower instead of being full length like the other V3s. The cones under the plinths are custom black chrome ones instead of the usual ones supplied by Salk. As discussed before (and heckled by Dennis) the center channel is a smaller sealed version of the V Monster center channel, so it will fit our planned cabinet arrangement. I don't know what the low end performance loss is between my CC and the full VM, but I still have an HSU VTF3 sub for HT duty if I think its needed. I cut the VTF3 off when I set the V3s up and have not missed it yet, Even when I played the openning scenes from TOPGUN at -0- db on the Yamaha, (Had the wife yell "turn it down") I don't feel like anything is missing or distorted.
Jim, Chalk up another happy Salk Signature Sound customer.
