Thank you everyone.
Since I have a some sort of upgrade disease like many of us here, I’m thinking of getting Amati Tradition.
Anyone went from Serafino to Amati? I would hate to lose money on new speakers but my room can handle bigger speaker.

You mentioned earlier used Amati Futuras. While I've not spent much time in front of Amati Traditions, my understanding is that they're at a lower price point than were the AFs, and if they were in the same generation, would have been below the AFs in a product lineup.

That course of action may not be practical if you have a good trade in option with your dealer for Amati Traditions. If you have the upgrade bug, going to the ATs sooner than later probably makes a lot of sense. If you're asking the question now, you're probably not satisfied. Welcome to the rabbit hole!

Look forward to hearing what you do. All that said, your current system is excellent.

Yeah, that wasnít me with Futuras.
Exactly what Iím thinking though is while they are relatively like new to get better swap value as Iím getting pretty good deal.
Donít know something about deeper bass that I think I would want more of. At the same time I ruled out Amati Tradition initially as I thought they were too big for my room but now looking at it, Iím thinking Amati would be just fine.
Serafinoís are spectacular though.

Re the Futuras, my bad - recalled that on the thread from a while back and didn't remember it wasn't you.
