Sonus faber Electa Amator III review is coming

The pair of Sonus faber Electa Amator III speakers is leaving the factory premises in Vicenza for the upcoming test and review. At my visit, a few months ago I've seen the prototype and was attracted by what has been shared to me by the creative team. So yes, I'm looking forward to the prolonged, intimately encounter with these beauties.

GT-Sound GSU-UH1 ultra super tweeter

The condensed blurb of this interesting super tweeter... “The high bandwidth does not get corrected by the super-tweeter.

Also the mid to low frequencies reproduction capability will bdramatically improve. Its like an secret recipe for thee music.”

No compression!

Tim De Paravicini shares a great news about the new Mark Knopfler album... “Just had a lovely email from Bob Ludwig about how proud he is to master the forthcoming Mark Knopfler album that was mixed to my 1 inch tape and mastered from same type with no compression or hardly any Eq. As he says 99% of the work he gets is polishing turds time. But this just admiration of Mark Knopfler.”
