The above speakers were built for me.
So much has been said of the outstanding sound and build quality as well as the value of Jim's speakers, it becomes somewhat difficult to say something not already said.
I was a few weeks away from buying a pair of JM labs, and while researching, I ran across some very positive posts on other forums talking of Salk speakers. Although the thought of not buying commercial speakers never entered my mind, I was intrigued, and had to learn more. After a little digging and much to my surprise, Jim was about an hour drive from my house.
My wife and I decided to give Jim a call.
What I experienced during and after my first call to Jim was something special. Of all the things I purchased in my life, not one was as enjoyable as this.
Having the owner/builder/operator invite you to his shop, show you around and answer all your questions is truly a special experience. Afterwards, we are invited into his home, meet his family and are given a chance to listen to his speakers and chat more. Add to this the extreme passion Jim shows for his work, the unbelievable sound and craftsmanship, and it is becomes apparent that this is truly something unique.
Texas Steve, I visited Jim's shop a couple times, and she was with me for both visits, and actually enjoyed the process with me. She also picked the finish and loves everything about them. She is a good woman.
I LOVE MY SPEAKERS
Thanks Jim, and to all involved.
