In your opinion, of Franco Serblin's own Sonus Faber designs or those designs for his own company. What was his best speaker?

For me it would have to be the Extremas, speakers way ahead of the amplifiers of the day, but amazing nonetheless.

The Electa Amator and the original Amatis are no slouches either....;)

The Extrema's, surely. I have owned them but only keep the original Electa Amator with the wood stands and the Guarneri's. :rolleyes:

Stradivari Homage.. Enjoyed them for nearly a decade. I choked up a bit when they were being driven away, hopefully to a good home.

I think the Extremas with todays SOTA high powered amps would be amazing. Selling these was perhaps my greatest shouldacouldawoulda moment in audio.
