Apexocra , great pics thanks for sharing . I will listen to it at the Munich show . Hoping it's not that much better than my Coltrane 2. are you familiar with the C2 , is the C3 different sounding . Any figures on sensitivity , impedance ... Am tond the newer speaker is a slightly more difficult load to drive .Cheers !

Thank you!
I don't have the spec.
C2 is great to. Have not heard them side by side. I imagine that C3 is a far better speaker all together.

They look gorgeous to boot. Not sure what the RRP is though.







These are just gorgeous speakers.

My nickname growing up was Coltrane. I think I might need to get some just because.

They are quite a bit heavier than the IIs.

Serious stuff yes.
I guess price wise they reside in Aida and TAD Reference One territory?

Yes thats right. You can probably add some more contenders, but probably not with C3's resolution. Not even TAD R1 is my guess. That is one thing I have to check out in The Munich 2015 Hi-End show this wednesday.
