    Wonderful photos! The Salon 2's really are works of art. I love the wood finish.

    Thanks.
    I love the wood finish (mahogany), too.
    Your Salon2-fascination is shared: I read in threads that you own them yourself. Excellent speakers.

    Congratulations PacMan!!! They look beautiful. I wish you many hours of happy listening. The Salon 2's are world class loudspeakers and have some of the smoothest treble I've ever heard. The speakers just don't have any weak points.

    Best,

    The ARC REF250's on the Studio 2's was incredible. The 2301's on the Salon 2's was excellent, but they killed them. I shut down the 2301's more than 10 times. Those Salon 2's are beasts to drive!

    Re: Revel Ultima Salon2 pictures

    Great pics ! Now you have a set of speakers to build your system around. Remember, with the Salons, they will continue to get better as the rest of your gear does. So take your time and audition as much gear at home as you can.

    Thanks, Mark.
    I have most of them (and more pictures too) in NEF format, also. In that format the size of each picture is more than 40 Mb and is very detailed.

    Pac Man,

    I like those photos with your reflection in the curves of the front baffle, very artistic!

    The photos are taken by a friend with a Nikon D800E camera.

    Hi Joe, how do the Ultima Salon 2's stack up against the Magico S5's in the areas of sound staging, imaging, balance, coherency, resolution, inner detail, tone/timbre and overall naturalness in your view? I know you've got big wraps on the S3's which also impressed me .

    Hi David,

    I've lived with Studio2's which are great (especially with ART monos). A couple of friends have Salon2's, which are awesome (they've used Ayre and the Hegel H30). I briefly heard the S1, S5 and S3 in different demos. They are world class but can cost well above the Salon2's.

    Honestly, I think the S5's have better/more bass than the Salon2's. The S5's display a higher level of resolution and clarity. The S5's also have a better - more balanced midrange, as the Salon2 midrange can seem slightly recessed, especially with certain amps (but it's not a deal breaker) . However, the Salon2 tweeter is world class and smoother to me. That being said, there is still a $10K - $15K difference in pricing which also much be taken into account. The Salon2's, with the right amps, fight way above their class and can easily satisfy one's audiophile needs. I'd take S3's, for my room, in a heartbeat. I'd also take Salon2's in a heartbeat with the gear that I already have and never have to look back.

    Re: Revel Ultima Salon2 pictures

    That's a very fair comparison Joe.

    David, I know you didn't ask me,but I hope you don't mind me putting my 2 cents in. The S5 is probably a better overall speaker when it comes to reproducing sound. What I mean by that is that it does all the audiophile stuff better than the Salon 2. I really like the S5, a lot !

    What the S5 didn't do, and I'm only speaking for myself so please don't take this as a criticism, is give me the emotional connection to the music as well as the Salons do. The Revel tweeter as Joe pointed out is one of the best in the world. And the speaker has an excellent overall balance, with a seamless integration of the drivers.

    At this level, it comes down to very personal choices. The S5 truly is a world class speaker, as is the Salon.

    I love Apples, you love Oranges. Everybody wins !

    Very well said Mark.

    I'd love to live with the S3 and see how I connect with them.
