One year old. Cabinets built by the former Sonus Faber plant in Italy with love and leather ... or is it? Built by Opera Loudspeakers. Designed by Mario Bon. Surely these are the best looking, highest value of all the retro loudspeakers to have emerged in the past few years? Classic 12-inch paper woofer with horn loaded compression driver. Switchable valve or transistor amplifiers, they fill the room with highly scaled soundstage as it ought to be. Raw studio sound, at last! Hence they perform like high-end giants. Truly a bargain and much better value than any alternative, new or used. We love them!
