Salk WOW1 speakers in fiddleback walnut! (Grills are black, not blue as the pic suggests).
One of the finest desktop or small room speakers, these are real gems.
To me, these very small (10.75x7x9 inches) speakers are the logical extension of the LS3/5a concept, but with better drivers, much lower coloration and far deeper, tighter bass.
These use premium drivers- the superb Seas Excel 12cm. magnesium woofer/midrange, used by Joseph Audio, Von Schweikert, Alon and others in $$$$ designs, and the justly famed hand matched Hiquphon OW1 tweeter, all blended by Dennis Murphy's hand, coupled to gorgeous Salk Sound cabinets.
The sound is excellent from top to bottom. This review has it right- they sound way out of line with their price and size:

These had a small veneer chip on a front corner when I bought them, which I have repaired. It is visible in the photo next to the quarter. There is a minor scratch on the bottom of each. This is why I rated them a 7. They are otherwise pristine.
I'm asking the list price of the drivers alone- $675. Crossovers, cabinets, grills, design work and packaging are free!
I will ship in the original, very protective packaging. For local pickup or where shipping charges are less than the amount charged I will refund part or all of the ship charge.
Thanks for having a look!
