Reference 3A- i heared them a/b's against SF Extremas a long time ago. not as good as the SF but very good speakers with a similar tonal balance. also a lot less money of course.

What sounds better is to some extent a personal preference. To my ears Sonus Faber sounds a bit polite and overly refined - I like my speakers more dynamic and in your face eg Lenehan Audio and Rockport.
Disclaimer: I live close to Lenehan Audio, visit them often to check out there gear, and have a lot of it so am for certain biased. Still, if you can locate one to hear, which may be difficult if you are not in Australia, well worth a listen.
You can probably find somewhere to hear Rockport virtually anywhere.
