Thanks for the close up photos!
Btw, the stand looks like it's install the wrong way.

However, stand looks great and Franco appears to have realized that getting xovers out of the speaker can be a huge improvement. Speaker should be really good.
The crossover is external? at the back of the stand?

thanks Bill,Tommy and Howie for sharing
The chrome-plated metal is in no way my thing, it seems to be a new trend of style in the process of generalization, I hope that Sonus faber will take out a black version

I don't care much for the look of the speaker but for my tastes the stands although plain look better than those on the Guarneri's.

They are beautiful for sure, and I'm sure they sound as they look, but why do I see Sonus Faber from so many angles?

Franco Serblin started Sonus Faber in 1983 (Thanks Bill!) and sold it a few years back. He designed many famous SF speakers during those times, including the Guarneri Homage, Stradivari Homage, etc. I can't wait to see what he has in store for the next project!

Right Bill! I confused that with his first Snail speakers. Corrected now. Thanks.
