In search for speakers of "natural" sound
I heard the Gato floorstanders recently. V natural sound, with their amps. Big fan of that brand. 
might be partly down to SF liking to use relatively small mids across quite a broad frequency range.  
SEAS vs SB Acoustics
With Class A power, you are more at the mercy of Hoffman’s Iron Law (regarding the much needed sensitivity/efficiency). It may be a choice between large cabs or less bass response 
@daveyf, I didnt critique the sound of any particular SF product. Have a great day. 
$27,500 for whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???
Why are you even discussing it. For the super rich, they’ll get a kick out of telling friends over dinner at Masa they ordered it in the 27k paint option. 
Sonus Faber kind of became a caricature. Wood, leather, marble, metal etc, lets see how many different materials we can combine. The image is a bit stuck in the past and not really high design anymore. Altho the more accessible range has a much cl... 
Sonus Faber peeling leather
Slightly off subject but noticed a small manufacturing defect on Olympica models at recent show - the plastic molding around mid (and tweet) wdnt sit flush - either side of mid at thinnest point. I cant understand how that is acceptable tbh.

Schiit Freya plus. Is this an upgrade?
Can these globe fubes fit in a Freya? The spacing is tight.https://psvanetube.com/wordpress/store/products/treasure-globe-6sn7-se-pair-gf-limited-special-editi... 
Design a $60,000 Speaker - Start here
Bump...  Sonus Faber..  the drivers on some of their lesser range look pretty cheap. I dont esp like the sound from the base tweeter they use. Back to 60k speakers, that 11" accuton is a beast! But why 8 ohm? The parameters call.for a large box, s... 
Choices narrowed Rogue RP-1 and Primaluna Prologue Premium Preamps
Surprised no one mentioned s/h Copland preamps. 
Atoll IN200SE Integrated Amplifier
Thanks for your detailed review. There are FA reviews on the interweb .. maybe a ton in Francais, but there we go. I'm driving over to northern France from UK soon, so plan to buy this amp-  maybe even from factory(if its possible), which is not f...
