Lew, glad to see you finally have your Salon's up and running and more importantly have them pulled sufficiently into your room so as to provide for a proper soundstage !

Me too. I infer that a nice guy named Tim saved weeks of waiting and got a screaming deal. Smart guy!

I can understand why you'd wait to spike them. I'm doing it today instead of going to the gym.

I watched the new Star Wars yesterday. Fast review: silly movie utterly lacking in imagination, great sound track. The best thing was the music by John William's played over the credits. The sound these speakers reproduced was stunning in its reach and extension.

There's a fair amount of cyber ink about how Kevin wants you to deploy these speakers. Following his recommendations seems to work.

I tipped them over to install the spikes and to my surprise they just didn't want to screw in. It feels like the captive nuts' threads don't match the spikes or vice versa. Am I missing something?

Sorry to hear that. Maybe they changed sizes of the spikes or threaded inserts. I had no issue with mine. It might be time for a call to your dealer.

That happened to me with the 208's, on BOTH speakers, 2 spikes screwed in perfectly (2 spikes per speaker) and I had to use a bit WD40 on the others. One would simply not go in more than 1/4 way.

The dealer sent me a new set of spikes, I tried the new pieces and only 6 of the (new) 8 fit correctly. I ended up using something different to decouple the speakers from the floor. Honestly, its the only disappointment I have had with the 208's, still, this should't happen. Surprised you are experiencing this with the Ultima line.
