Salk Sound Supercharged Songtower speakers for sale - must collect from London UK


Recommended Posts

A rare chance to experience the magic of Jim Salk's much renowned speakers. More so after Jim sadly decided to close shop last year as he retired.

 

Salk Sound is one of those brands you've either come across or not. In my case I was looking for the very best floorstanders I could afford for under £5k and after much research landed on Salk Sound. Salk was reccomended to me by pals in the hobby and the more I read the more I liked. He has an almost cultlike following over on Audio Circle. 

 

I bought these direct, custom made, from Jim Salk in 2016 and paid nearly £5k once Fedex from Michigan to UK and import duties was factored in. Unfortunately they have a few scratches from when we moved house but these are only noticeable on the stands and the speakers themselves look great. Marks shown clearly on the photos.

 

I truly believe these were one of the true bargains in this hobby for delivering the performance of a much more expensive speaker at a very reasonable price. I'd to go up to the £15k Focal Sopra 2's in order to convince myself I was truly making an upgrade.

 

I don't have the original boxes so the buyer must collect them from me in Central London. Factoring that and the marks into account I'm looking for only £2500 and I'll even throw in the Iso Acoustic Gaia III isolation feet that cost another £370 and make a wonderful improvement - especially on hard floors like wood.

 

Details below:

 

Smoky Silver Maple finish

 

RAAL RIBBON

This tweeter does an amazing disappearing act. It is almost as if there is no tweeter there at all...just a crystal clear window into the sound. This helps create the illusion that the performers are actually in the space with you.

 

MAGNESIUM CONES

The Seas W15 woofers in this design feature stiff, low-mass magnesium cones. Thus, they are able to re-create subtle detail in the midrange that other drivers simply can't reproduce. Many customers remark on hearing detail in familiar recordings that they never heard before.

 

Search the audiocircle forum website for Salk Sound and you'll see the kind of enthusiasm Salk Sound speakers have over in the US.

 

These are an absolute steal and will make many systems far better. But unfortunately shipping looks too much of an ordeal to sort out so I'll do them at a great price as long as the buyer can collect from me in central London, UK.

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Cheers,

Alan
