Sonus Faber Elipsa vs. Elipsa SE

I have an opportunity to buy a pair of Elipsas. They don’t come up often. Should I nonetheless wait for a pair of SE’s? How much better are they than the original Elipsas? Thanks. 


I had a chance to hear both. I got the SE version. Much better tweeter. Much better finish. The tweeter is the biggest reason to get the SE. The upgraded tweeter comes off their flagship 45K legendary Stradivarius, which is currently listed on Audiogon for 20k. How much are you paying for the Elipsa? Can you swing the Strad? 

Thanks for the feedback. The Elipsa is around $8,000. There were two other Strads that recently sold in the high teens.
