I recently acquired these speakers locally. I’ve been wanting to move from stand mounted speakers to a larger floor standing speaker for awhile now. When I moved into a place where I can play my music as loud as I want, whenever I want, I started really looking. My Fritz Carreras sound so good, especially eq’d, that they beat out everything I put up against them. When I saw these Salks locally, I pounced on them and am glad I did. They sound absolutely incredible and are exactly the move I was trying to make.
I’d say the strengths of the Salks are a very flat response, great bass response, smooth delicate highs, great soundstage depth and very dynamic. When I used an eq, I could get the Carreras to do 90% of what the Salks do, which is quite impressive for a speaker 1/3 of size and $1500 less expensive.
All in all, I am very pleased with the sound quality, build quality and appearance of the Salks.
