James lives in a small NYC apartment and had no room for floor-standing speakers. But he didn’t want to sacrifice sound quality. So he asked us to develop a no-holds-barred high-end bookshelf speaker.We started with the same custom RAAL tweeter we use in our flagship SoundScape speakers. We paired it with the Scan Speak Illuminator. The results surprised even us!Despite their small size (8” W x 14” H x 11” D), these speakers play down to 42Hz. They are front-ported so they can be placed on a bookshelf or quite near the rear wall. We call them SILK because they are “smooth as silk” from top to bottom. Listeners were floored with the performance at various audio shows where these have been previewed. We have certainly never heard a bookshelf speaker perform to this level.applicationsThe SILK’s are perfect for building a small system with high sound quality. Their size allows their use in spaces that will not allow for a larger bookshelf or tower speaker.available finishesStandard finishes include curly maple, curly cherry, curly walnut, oak, straight mahogany and satin black. Of course, as with all of our custom speaker products, the SILK's can be ordered in virtually any finish you desire.SILK pricingNaturally, a speaker of this quality is priced accordingly. At retail, these would be about $8000 per pair. But we are offering them at an introductory price of $3495 in a standard finish (custom finishes available at extra cost).contact usBecause these systems are made to order, materials and finishes can vary greatly.
