I am quite versed with high end audio, but not on European specific equipment. I live in the US but will be in Florence at the end of May if you would like to get together over a bottle of wine to discuss.
Corrected for TYPOS only. In Italy, beware of Devis (Italy and UK) wire and cable or anyone assoicated with that company or affilated company. They do not pay their bills and consumers have told us they are not reputable. We know from our own experience with them that they are not honest or trustworthy.
