Has anyone directly compared Dali Rubicon 6 to Sonus Faber Sonetto V speakers?
Sonetto are lovely looking. I don’t know if there’s literally any sonic advantage of them over the Dali however. But they are less money to be fair. Both lines are very long in the tooth, and should be replaced soon I’d guess. The Sonetto have a... 
trying to contact Albertsportis
Yes, MOST of the stuff he advertises he doesn't even have.   Apparently he sells B stock as A stock sometimes too.  It's nice that some people have had good experiences with him, but he's a bait and switch scam artist no matter how much people wan... 
Ever Been Too High?
Lame dad jokes aside, you heard the difference in the room more than anything. 
Speaker brands known to use first class internal components
"I would hate to buy a pair of speakers that I absolutely love and are totally worth the money to me based on their sound and look, but I'd be devastated if I found out the internal parts weren't high quality."Ugh. 
My swarm sub system is in The Absolute Sound !!
So much thought and money put into cables and not a dollar spent on room treatments...  :-\ 
New Paradigm Persona Update Coming Soon?
Proac K6 Signature, Sonus Faber Amati Tradition,Verity Audio Amadis, Kharma DB-9
The Sonus Faber for sure.   
Are the Paradigm Founder Series really, really good speakers?
The bookshelf speakers are meant to be surrounds or used in stereo with subs.  They have very little bass extension which is disappointing.  If used in those two scenarios, they're great.  Basing your opinions off that unusual bookshelf is quite u... 
Paradigm or JL subwoofer
JL makes quite possibly the least reliable sub woofers on the planet.  I used to love them until I realized how unreliable they are and watched their retail price climb over the years with zero advancements.  They seem to just not care about their... 
You pay for it and you get it...
How high up are the midrange drivers on the Alexx V in comparison to the Sabrina?Rhetorical question, of course. 
Sonus Faber Olympica III vs. Focal Electra 1038BE
Why in the world do people dig up these old threads is just beyond me. 
sonus faber electa amator iii or magico A1 or any other suggestion
The Electa Amator is far more musical.  I’ve heard both quite extensively.  I don’t love the marble on the bottom of the Electa, but it’s an otherwise painfully gorgeous speaker.  No comparison to the Magico in that regard.The Electa also has much... 
Open Letter To REL, SVS, Hsu, etc., et al
That sneakers track actually sucks too. But really, you don’t have Tidal or anything? No way to play a YouTube video through it? I agree that they should provide what they think would be the best setup tools, but it’s not like it’s impossible to d... 
Which speakers did you find bright, fatiguing or just disappointing in some way?
fastfreight: Which dealer?  My local dealer has them sounding incredible but they always mention how they hear of other dealers setting them up horribly and doing them a great disservice. 
Upgrading from Thiel 2.7 to Sonus Faber or Focal???
Olympica Nova by a mile.
