No, obvioudly the Salk "song tower" imply by name that they are floorstanding. I read an enthusiastic user review for the Salk but have not heard them.

Based on the Salks I have heard (ST, Ht2-TL, SS 10), the Salk house sound runs to the cool, analytical, and detailed, rather than the warm and bloomy. If that is your bag, you could really like them; if it is not you might think them a bit dry, and respond more as Toddnkaya did. Salk is reputed to have excellent customer service, and the box work is lovely.
I don't know the Lore, but single driver speakers are a particular flavor, and I'd expect it to be a bigger change from what you have then the Salk, though moving from dome to ribbon could make a large difference.
This is just a guess, but I suspect either of these moves would be lateral, though either of the options might better suit your taste than what you have -- depending on what that taste is!
I do like warm sounding speakers, so it may be i take a look at something other than Salk. And this coming from a Merlin Owner, which are not warm speakers at all, but i have the highs tamed dowm, so no problem.I just want to use the Merlin with tubes and some other speaker that mates well with SS, that is what i am looking for.
