    I know what you mean about the Salon 2 being an expensive girl. I have had my Salon 2s for about 2 1/2 years and in that time frame I have spent more than $70K to upgrade all the electronics.

    Enjoy the K-03 and give us a report when you receive it.

    Rich, wow, pretty funny. Looks like we are following the same expensive path, lol. Revel Salons, Krell S-1200, and soon the K-03! I'm assuming you like the K-03? What should we do about amps, LOL? I really really like my MacMC452 though, and not likely to change any time soon. In fact, I'm hoping that, other than a server, I'm done with equipment for a long time and can settle into just listening. No...really....I mean it

    Jeff,

    The Esoteric K-03 is a very good unit. I am sure you'll like it. I think you have a pretty setup with the Krell and K-03. It's time to just sit back and enjoy the music.

    I am done with upgrading for awhile. It's been 268 hours since my last upgrade. I think I can hold another 120 hours before the next upgrade.

    I am pretty satisfied with Salon 2 as well.

    What would you like to see in the Salon 3?

    I would like to see sensitivity of at least 89 dB/m.
    Better cabinet finishes/selection. I liked the paint job on the first generation Ultima series.
    No more speaker terminal cover on the cabinet. The one on the Salon 2 don't work.
    Maybe slightly shorter cabinet. I think Salon2 is a bit tall.

    Rich,
    have to agree would like to see more choices of woods. Better sensitivity would be nice as well
    The cover has got to go for sure. keep it world class and less than 30,000

    André - - - Keep it simple system
    Amp = Chord CPM-2600
    Source = Chord One
    Speakers = Acoustat 1+1s highly modified
    Life without Acoustat is possible BUT senseless.

    Re: Any Revel owners?

    I have a pair of Revel F52's which I think 'fight above their weight' although I have them relegated to duty in my theater. Bought them instead of B&W 803's in a direct audition many years ago. They work very well in my room and as the front channel but I do feel guilty that they are not able to fully show their stuff in this setup. They are sweet in the mids and for staging.
