Sonus Faber Stradivari vs Sonus Faber Amati Futura

I'm in a position to buy either the SF Strads or the Futuras. I would like to hear from those who have heard both and which you prefer and why.

My room is 14 feet, 1 inch wide by 30 feet, 6 inches long. It's a dedicated, closed, acoustically treated room.

My amps are Mcintosh 2301's (300 watt/channel tube amps)


A friend owns the Strads so i've heard them many times. I was even going to purchase them from him until his new upgraded speakers in waiting turn out not to be an upgrade at all, I've also heard quite a fewer speakers worth many times the price of the Strads. I won't go off on a rant but I will say the Strads are finest speaker I've experienced bar none.
I can't comment on the Futura's as I've only heard them a few times at are local salon, so a comparison by me would not be of much if any value. I guess if I was to try and form some type of estimate, I would say the Futura was more neutral where the Strads were more musical.
I liked them both, but would do almost anything for a pair of Strads.
