Yes, they are big. The Aida's are big as well but side by side they look skinny.
Apexorca, as a proud owner of a pair of Amati Futuras it really hurts to see that photo!

Sorry, jealousy is an ugly thing!

Seriously, hope you're still enjoying those big boys in good health!

Sounds like a challenge Ivan - a change of diet may be in store.

Hehe. Get over here and hear for your selves.
I'm enjoying them for sure.

The Amati Futura is a great speaker and it's possible to make them sound extremely good to. All music can be enjoyed fully. They are also the most beautiful speaker ever build, I think. The look/design, the size, the sound. That mix is the best ever.

Best get them in the correct position the first time. Moving them will not be a simple task.

Probably should make sure you have a proctologist on call just in case things get out of hand.

Those are gorgeous speakers by any standard.

I'll bring a bottle of iced Skåne if you've got a six pack of Peroni to keep it Italian! It's probably 32 years ago to the day since I spent a week at the Folkets hus at a conference and a few nights partying at Erroll's there in Göteborg.
