The Sonus are gems. Warm, organic, musical, but truthful capturing the emotion of music. I want them.....

I've listened to the Canterbury SE and a 12" PHY driver system both are wonderful with the PHY a bit more natural but doesn't have the bottom end or play as loud as the Canterburys. Try and have a listen to any PHY based speaker, once heard it's hard to listen to a multi driver speaker again.
i have owned the original Cremona (not the M) I now own the Tannoy Kensington SE
The Kensington are in another league. No multi driver speaker i have heard compares to the soundstage and naturalness of dual concentric speakers.
Both are musical speakers but the Tannoy is on another level entirely.
The Tannoy are also very unfussy in terms of amplifier and room placement. You do need to match your cables carefully as they can really show up weaknesses in your components.
Audition both but my personal experience on my hifi journey is that, the Tannoy are simply the most musically satisfying speakers i have ever heard. i would only swap them for a Canterbury or Westminster.
i am a big fan
