What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
I’d be more than happy to accommodate. My reach out to you is simply knowing how close you are and the path you’ve been down. It is definitely worth an afternoon of your time, or anyone else’s who might be in the DFW area.  
What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
JM, you need to experience the series 2. The elevation Francesco made is nothing short of astounding. I had an Audioquest rep over yesterday and he was shocked by the Elba 2. He expressed that he had never heard a speaker sound anything like that ... 
What comes after Harbeth 30.1s?
You're local to me.  Come hear the Rosso FIorentino Pienza and Fiesole.  The Pienza are currently at Part Time Audiophile for a review but they will be back at my house on October 16 for an audio meet.  Maybe its an ideal time for you to come out? 
Suggestions for Minn/St Paul HiFi Stops? Retail/Manufacturers/Private Homes
analog.audio has a wonderful, fully dedicated and treated room that is worth visiting.  He is on the Northwest side of Minneapolis.He has the Rosso Fiorentino Elba 2 on demo currently, being backed by Nagra gear if I'm not mistaken.  The Elba 2 is... 
Wilson Audio Sasha sound imbalance
A wavering center image in my experience has always been solved by more precise setup of speakers.  Double and triple check your measurements as well as toe-in.  The fact that it wavers only in a certain band strongly suggests to me it isn't a bal... 
Ohm Speakers and Services prices to increase September 1st
This is where the world is going unfortunately, due to COVID's impact.  If you are on the fence about any brand and think you'll pull the trigger on a product eventually, try to do it sooner than later.  A price increase is looming for everyone. 
New mains to complement Usher 5.1 setup?
Perhaps consider the N6311 or N6361. They are based off the CP-6 series and represent great values. 
Actual Lead Time on Tekton Speakers
I don't think anyone has said anything out of line, but the reality is that the world has changed and is completely unpredictable right now.  I have no vested interest in Tekton - in fact, they are a competitor - but I do hope clients can understa... 
Actual Lead Time on Tekton Speakers
You are not wrong to have grievances, but the state of the world today is a massive challenge for production.  Manufacturers are struggling to meet deadlines because their suppliers are also failing to meat deadlines.  During the post-COVID adjust... 
Opinions on the ; Rosso Fiorentino Sienna or Volterra II Speakers
urbie,There is truth to your words, but Rosso Fiorentino is not a brand that is going to stay that way for much longer.  I have worked with the brand for six years now and been acting distributor for about four.  We are establishing ourselves and ... 
Opinions on the ; Rosso Fiorentino Sienna or Volterra II Speakers
Hello garebear and riaa,I know I've spoken to you both recently about RF but I will follow up with some information here.  All reviews we have on the products in the US are available at the link below.  There isn't much out there yet on the Volter... 
Intimate, warm and holographic alternative
Rosso Fiorentino should be on a short list for these requirements.  The Elba 2 has a handful of reviews out now, including Robert Harley from TAS in the April Issue.  I would suggest looking at the Volterra as a real option and pairing it with a N... 
Moving up the Harbeth line
My experience with the models is that they are a family, but not a nuclear one.  The P3ESR is like an only child.  The Monitors (30 and 40) are one set of siblings while the C7ES3 and the SHL5+ are another set of siblings.  They are all cousins an... 
Moving up the Harbeth line
I am a dealer and am local to you. Feel free to reach out - that emotional connection is what I build my systems around. If you don’t get that, it doesn’t matter how much detail retrieval you can achieve. I also prefer close field settings so it s... 
Stereo Times list of the " 2020 MOST WANTED COMPONENTS"
It appears to me the reviewers had to choose a single product they reviewed that most impressed them.  I know Greg and I were in serious discussions of him purchasing the review pair of Rosso Fiorentino Elba 2, so at least in that case it was not ...
