Just be aware that Silverline offers a warranty only to the original owner. Caveat emptor.

I have a pair of Sonatina and they are a very musical speaker. Yes they can be a little bright, especially if something upstream tends to be that way. These speakers have beautiful finishes, easy placement, and Alan Yung is great to work with. They produce some of the best midrange I have heard. Tubes are a better match than SS IMHO. I think these speakers play certain types of music better than others, ie. if you like heavy metal, probably not the speaker for you. If your tastes are more mild this would be a nice speaker for you.
I'm unfamliar with an upgrade for the Sonatina MK II. I own the original Sonatinas and have been ejoying them very much for three years. Yes, I am considering selling them (I'm the original owner) only because I bought a 45 SET amp in February and was so impressed I'm considering either a horn or single-driver that will better matchup with my Moth amp. Let me say the Sonatina+Moth combo is a very compelling duo. I just want to investigate first-hand what all the fuss is about.
