I wish I could agree with all the favorable comments on these speakers, but I find them very unattractive. First of all, the pattern draws way too much attention to the speaker which I have always felt should blend in with the surroundings. And the pattern looks grotesque to me. I am not a Salk speaker owner so maybe I don't feel compelled to go along with popular consensus.
As three-dimensional as the front of these speakers appears in a photo, it must really be something sweet in person.
I am not a Salk owner either. I have, however, had the unique opportunity to sign final permits on some really beautiful work from some very talented cabinet makers. Jim's cabinet making skills are amazing, in my book. He is a gifted and rare craftsman, IMHO.
Then again, our choice in dogs isn't the same, either.
