A beautifully crafted 3-way tower with 33Hz extension from Salk Sound, the Song 3 looks to be quite a bargain. A papyrus fiber cone woofer, bamboo mid and RAAL tweeter all come together in the Song 3 for a sound which could match the quality of other speakers at AXPONA that were many times more expensive.

Check out these beauties if you dare!

I heard them at Axpona among other models by Salk, they really deliver amazing sound quality for the dollar. I would be easily be a top pick at that price point.

Must be an older picture of that single speaker in the write-up as it has an $1895 ticket. ;)

It's written that Salk Song 3 is ported, did he go away from the transmission line loading?

What I am really curious about is those sweet looking cable elevators! Maybe we should have an audioholics AXPONA 16 Cable Elevator review – or is it too late for April's fools?

Yup... The cable elevators make me doubt everything else.

I can assure you the speakers were developed without the aid of elevators, other than the accumulated dog hair on my carpet. And the prototype wire was from Parts Express.
Even the most irrational audiophiles agree that dog hair-coated PVC-insulated copper wire makes better sounding speaker wire than Teflon-insulated silver.

Interesting. So this would make it essentially a direct Home Theater competitor to the Ascend Sierra RAAL Tower? Since the original SC Songtower was an MTM, making it more suited for music, whereas this would be a true 3 way and have a much wider sound field.

I would like to see the waterfall graphs!!
Waterfall graphs comparing speaker wire performance require speakers so an acoustic measurement could be made. If the speaker performance could somehow be subtracted out, the graphs of different wire performances would all be flat. Unless you believe the world is flat :D.

In all seriousness, these speakers themselves are much more interesting than kidding about speaker wire :). They deliver more bass than I expect while in a smallish cabinet. The mid range driver covers most of the primary tones, apparently without stress, all while delivering wide dispersion. They are very attractive, especially at that price.

I know this is an old thread but anyone know how these compare to the Ascend RAAL towers? Or heard both?
