That must be awesome. Lucky you

Hearing the original Cremona is what got me interested in the SF brand. A beautiful musical sounding speaker in my opinion. Don’t let them out of your hands.

A friend who was with Sumiko for years, told me to replace the tweeters with domed ScanSpeak Revelator & the Cremona would be transformed (much improved). He likes the Cremona, but said the tweeter was always it's weak point. I think it's a physical drop-in, but I'd probably need to add a resistor to match the output of the old tweeter. It's an intriguing idea though.

I always knew my Cremona Auditors had potential. That’s why I have kept them for 10 years and have attempted to mate different amps to them, though always unsuccessful. I just paired them with my newly acquired preowned Mcintosh MC452 and they finally sing like I knew they could. C22 commemorative preamp to inject a little tube magic and it sounds pretty impressive. My non audiophile friend was amazed by the “big sound out of such a little speaker”

I use an Audio Research Reference 150 with my Elipsa's. Although the amp stopped working last week and I'm sending it to ARC for repairs and an upgrade to SE.
