Default New SF model. Aida mini?

Sonus faber has been running a "name our next speaker model" contest on their official facebook page during the last few days. From the looks of it, it will be a smaller version of Aida. Anyone have more info about this? Please tell me it's not another $50K speaker!

I propose Sonus Faber "Iris"

In Greek mythology, Iris is the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the gods. She is also known as one of the goddesses of the sea and the sky. Iris links the gods to humanity. She travels with the speed of wind from one end of the world to the other, and into the depths of the sea and the underworld.

The first question it came my mind is, what is going to be the price bracket?

we have the following:

futura @ 36k
strad @ 45k
new @
aida @ 120k
TSF @ 220k

it is my guess only it will be between strad / aida. not even sure about that but i think this is a good guess.

Did anybody read the information they gave on the Facebook teaser? That will tell you much more if you look closely.

Remember Aida will inform every Sonus faber going forward.
