Congratulations ; vinnydabully as they truly are beautiful speakers. Franco Serblin who was the original master behind Sonus Faber creates some works of art sonically as well as aesthetically with his speakers. I have looked at the Accordos as well as the Ktema's and they are speakers that I am surprised have not gained much of a following over here in the US. Enjoy the music as I am sure you will .....
I would love to listen to the Stradaveris....l can't comment on them because I've never heard them....so l won't make any judgments..other than the 6 1/2 in. Polypropylene mid seems a little big and the aluminium woofers may have some inertia issues....but l could be totally wrong...the cabinets are exquisite....audiophiles often say the Stradaveris are Franco Serbins best work....
Obviously they look like the Sonus. If any of you are in the NYC area our Listening Room in Northern New Jersey we have the Sonus Faber Strats that you are welcome to come listen to.
While having emotion in sound is one of the things we also love, equipment used can also add other attributes like sound stage, dimension, speed, openness, detail to that sound so you can have it all.
Congrats and Happy Listening.
After hearing many different good tweeters over the years, I have to agree with you. It's hard to beat a good silk dome.
Did you ever consider that the correction might have saved him from future embarrassment if that mistake was made in a business email for example? We all learn here about different things.
Back to the regularly scheduled program
Indeed the Serblin speakers seem to be overlooked here in the US. I think possibly because of their aesthetic? Not sure why else?
IMHO, Franco's best works were the GH's, the Strads and the Ktema's. Each needs a room appropriate for the speaker size, like all speakers.
I'm a 60 year old hard working machinist, who owns no home computer...(wife has one)...l still can't figure out how to post pics on Audiogon easily...she could help me ....as far as aesthetics go l can see your point.The speakers are very ornait, maybe too much...the Accordo essence (not mine) looks like a museum piece.. everything is so refined...compare it to a Tecton and your head will explode.. l can live with my Accordos, but my furniture is barley worthy....the speakers look like there overdressed for a a party in my room...
