Am I the only one who is not that impressed by these new models? It's not an ugly speaker by any means, but from Sonus faber I always expect gorgeous aesthetic perfection, and these are just generic looking. The stands look flimsy and do not visually match the rest of the design. Color me underwhelmed.

From the pictures on the SF website, the workmanship looks impeccable, and the Electa definitely doesn’t look generic in person, with the brass insert around the bottom and the marble bottom of the speaker matching the marble base of the stand - they live up to SF standards. The smaller one looks pretty good in the website detailed pictures, but of course may be different in person, I haven’t seen them yet.
