Sonus Faber Amati Homage

Manufacture Date: 2000
Serial: 440
Made in Italy

One of the best speakers ever made, and probably the nicest looking speakers ever made.
In absolutely immaculate condition. With original double shipping boxes, packaging, manuals, all paperwork and accessories. Everything as new
This was Sonus Faber's top flagship model until the Stradivari Homage came out. Has been very well looked after, and in execellent condition.
The best way to describe the sound is for you to read the review at:
http://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/139/
At the end, the reviewer said this "How to convince my (nonaudiophile) wife to spend that kind of money? Amazingly, that was the easy part. After her first audition of the Amatis, she stood up and found herself saying—almost involuntarily, as if Beetlejuice himself had taken over: "I don't care how much they cost—we have to have them!" Guys, this direct quote says more about the Amati Homage than my whole damn review"
He bought his review pair and used his as his reference system.
These have the sweetest most amazing mid range I've ever heard from a speaker, and I've had lots of expensive speakers!

Feel free to ask questions, but please don't ask to come see/listen. Please bid, and if you win the auction, then you can spend the day audititining them. And only buy them if you like them. If not I'll relist, no harm done.
