Good deal.\n\nI'll tell you the same thing I told the guy that I hosted...bring some music that you've played many times.\n\nComing from a 20 yr old pr of 804 series B&Ws I knew to get an appreciable gain, the upgrade was probably going to be north of $3k for the L&R. I had a budget of roughly $6k for speakers...namely LCR which would not go very far with the new 800 series B&Ws.\n\nATL still has a decent high end brick & mortar audio presence so I demoed a lot of speakers, and didn't really start hearing what I was looking for until I heard the Revel F208 and Monitor Audio Gold 300...now I was hearing something better than what I had and the LCR for those was a little over $6k....I discovered Salk and the rest is history.\n\nI only went to hear the Personas to compare them to the Song3As after I'd had them about a yr..Jim said he thought my 2.2 setup would compare well with speakers costing more than double the price...so I got the bug, .how would they compare to a $10k speaker? IT wasn't a true A to B comparison, but the same content...2.0 to 2.0 listening to music peaking into the 80 dB range ...3F was slightly meatier in the bass which you expect, but Salks held up much better than I expected mids\/highs, and when I factor in the dual subs...the Salks pkg was still half the price of the 3F.\n\nThe 3As\n\n\nWhat a nice looking setup! Nice and clean. \n\nI remember your process here. You were very thorough and did your homework. I'd love to hear it if I'm ever in your neighborhood.
