The company debuted the high value 3-way floor stander Song3, a vented 3–way member of the Song loudspeaker family. The Song3 employs RAAL Advanced Loudspeakers’ select model 64-10 tweeter, a bamboo fiber reinforced midrange and an “Egyptian papyrus” cone woofer.
The slim tower construction leverages Salk Sound’s expertise in creating high fidelity speakers that also deliver exceptional value. For an accurate, low distortion treble response, the Song3 employs RAAL Advanced Loudspeakers’ select model 64-10 tweeter coupled to a 4th order crossover network. The 4-inch midrange driver, with a bamboo fiber reinforced cone and neodymium magnet, is complemented by a 7.5-inch, low distortion high sensitivity woofer with an Egyptian papyrus cone.
The speaker’s nominal impedance is an easy to drive 8 Ohms, with an 88dB sensitivity. Despite the slender, decor friendly design, the Song3 achieves a frequency response of 33 Hz to 40 kHz, ±3 dB. The dimensions of each tower is 9.5 inches wide and 42 inches in height. Front to back depth is 14.5 inches, and the weight of an individual loudspeaker is 70 pounds. The suggested minimum recommended power is 50 watts per channel.
According to the press release, Jim Salk, founder and chief designer, is always concerned with balancing capability and cost. Believing that great sound shouldn’t require great expense, Salk initially thought that the design mandate was a contradiction. When asked to design a great 3–way for under $3,000, he thought that it couldn’t be done. Now, with advances in driver design “…and our increased manufacturing proficiency, we have delivered an uncommonly smooth and neutral speaker with seamless integration of the carefully chosen components. It plays remarkably low and, as one critic mentioned, throws one heck of a wide and deep soundstage thanks in no small part to the ribbon’s outstanding transient response”, Salk said.
Per pair pricing for the Song3 is $2,895 for the standard curly maple, curly cherry and curly walnut, plus oak, straight mahogany and satin black finishes. Hardwood trim, custom colors and dyed finishes are also available as an option, as are crossover component and bi–wiring upgrades.
