AV123 Mini; Salk HT3; Devore Gibbon Super 8

Has anyone heard any two or all of these speakers and can provide comparison for sound and build quality?
Your right about that 1musiclover Jim Salk is a god when it comes to woodwork,and all the drivers are top class,and he has a magician in his corner for the crossover in Dennis Murphy,its pretty hard for them to be anything but world beaters,but the things the Mini's can do for half of the of the HT-3's already low price is amazing,and the Mini's had their own guru's at work on them to in Danny Richie and Mark Seaton.I cant wait to hear the HT-3's and Rick Craig of Selah Audio's 3-D and Danny Richie's LS-6's and OB-7's,im still gonna listen to the Super 8's and the Dali Helicon 400's although i know the Super 8's wont go deep enough in the bass the 400's may come up a bit short to, a listen to the Usher lineup is in order to.
Joey,truthfully I didnt expect the Mini's to be anywhere near as good as they are,but they are stunning and a absolute steal at their price,definetly a heafty contender up to about 5k to 8k,are you still listening to yours or have you went back to the Summits yet?
I go back and forth between the 2... lately, I've had on my Summits again, but a few weeks ago, it was mostly the Minis. The Minis are good speakers, but once you get up there, there's quite a lot of contenders in the >$5K range if you look. I've had several people (audiophile friends and acquaintances) come by my place and listen to both speakers... and the consensus is always the same each time. The Minis are good, and the Summits are something else entirely.

Glad you enjoy the Minis!

So these Strata's are the real deal huh? Interesting, since right now I am auditioning lots of contenders in the $3-$5K range. Dynaudio, Devore, etc...I have the 804 b&w now but have the urge for something else. Will look harder at the Strata.
I own the HT3's and heard the Mini Strata's at RMAF this past year. While not exactly a fair comparison (home vs. show), I didn't feel that the Strata's would compete with the HT3's.

The Strata speakers will not have the same level of dynamics, resolution, and refinement. That being said, they are silly good for their $2k price - I honestly don't know how Mark does it!!

As for the HT3's...they were my main speaker for the past two years and have only recently been replaced by a pair of Vandersteen 5A's. Yes, I really did have to move way up to the 5A to find a speaker that improved on the well balanced sound of the HT3.

You can find lots more info on both the HT3 (over at AudioCircle.com) and the Strata (AV123's own forum).

I haven't had the pleasure of hearing the Devore speakers.
