) sometime in the next few months. Initial impressions on the IIIs and Center are very favorable. I'll be setting up the Is and subs this weekend.
I was tempted to ask for the IIs for review as it seems like they are the "middle child" in the lineup and haven't gotten much love yet. However, since my room is so large (24 x 28') and I'm a bass-junkie the IIIs are a far better fit. I've got to say, my media room has never looked so good. These speakers truly are stunning.
Sweet can please I come by?
If I were building a new room from scratch I would buy 9 Olympica III + 9 Olympica I and four Fathom F113 subs
or if I win the lottery then I would go for this
Sonus faber Homage, a new look for your luxury home theatre
The Homage Collection has always been one of Sonus faber bestsellers: the family composed by Amati futura, Guarneri evolution and Homage Vox has got an infinite potential for excellent hi-fi systems, stereo or multichannel and is perfect for luxury home theatre
; from now on, two new finishes will add more choice for customers: Red/Black Satin
and Piano Black
The main difference in both the new finishes regards the aluminum used for the top of the speaker, for the rear reflex-port and the bases. The Avional
, the precious aluminum alloy used for the Homage collection as well as for the flagships Aida and Lilium, is no longer nickel-plated, but instead it follows a different satin process which darkens the metal.
The same metal, in the Piano Black finish, has all the edges milled in silver; this treatment gives brightness to the black metal and enhances the black lacquering of the sides.
Moreover, the fixing screws of the drivers on the flange and the spikes are in silver creating a charming contrasting effect.
A brand new look for this classic Collection, that proves its maturity and, at the same time, its endless spirit.
