Default Apexorca systems



A big speaker change in my main system!
I have been listening to a lot of different reference speakers for over a year to see what they can do and what I like.
Sonus Fabers most speakers have a sound that I like a lot and thats the way with Fenice to. The best of them all. This one was tha last one for sale that I know of.

Amati Futura can't beat The Sonus Faber (Fenice), not many speaker can, I would say. So Futura has to leave. And SF Toy are supposed to live upstairs. Nice to have them in the same picture.
The xxl, m, xxs.



Now I'm doing some tuning to end up with a good position for them. They are not easy to move around.

"Upgrade" is an understatement.

Awesome system. I'm sure you'll have plenty of joy once the Fenice are setup and burned in.

Enjoy it in great health

Thank you everyone! I'm very happy about this upgrade.

I'll be back with more fotos and a verdict of the sound later. So far, Fenice and Futura is hard to compare. It's a completely different thing. The sound is more real in Dynamics. More like scale 1:1. Smaller speaker makes everthing in the music smaller. This gets very clear when you try side by side.
