sonus faber choices

Hi All

Would you go for a used pair of Sonus Faber Guarneri Homage from 2002 or a new pair of a Cremona M Auditors.

Not sure how much I ought to pay for the Guarneri but they have not been used much I'm told.

I only listen to classical / jazz and have a Pathos Logos and Ayre DAC and some decent JPS Labs cables.

Any good alternative to Sonus Faber around to $5000-$7000 US ? Quads are an option but I don't have the space right now.

Advice please ?

options

i heard an insanely great sounding pair of dynaudio s25 aniversarys recently. they are a limited production and are about 5700 if i remember right. the finish is drop dead gorgeous. i was shocked at how much low end weight they had.

I'd look into a pair of Opera

I'd look into a pair of Opera Linea Classica Quinta loudspeakers for $4500/pair. They will take up little more room than the Sonus Fabers on stands that you cite and will dig a little deeper. They have been called the poor man's Sonus Fabers and have been compared to the Sonus Faber Concerto Grand Piano and have been said to be better.

They are available at Audiowaves in Trinidad, CA.

Hello, I hope you have already made your choice.

Anyway, can I ask you an opinion? Are you hapy with your Pathos Logos? I own a Krell S300i, with an Audio Analogue Maestro CD and Sonus Faber Liuto Tower. I have a atractive offer to exchange my Krell for a Pathos Logos. Would you advise me to do so? 

 

Thank you
