This is a true destination speaker so I plan on having some fun down the road with its myriad possibilities. I held off 4+ years before ordering them, heard them multiple times, tried another top10 (IMHO speaker), several others owned or loaned, hit two Munich shows and heard countless other top flight speakers along the way in homes and dealers plus Munich shows. That all confirmed what I believed which led to getting them last June and being 100% in my choice.
Mark, very impressive, great choice, looking forward to see where this flexibility will lead you

Those are the Elipsa SE's (as correctly highlighted by Bart, thanks!), which share the same tweeter as the Strads.

I have actually been offered a pair of Stradivari 35th Anniversary at a pretty "decent" price, but have held off so far as I'm worried that 2 x 12" woofers would be too much for my modest size dedicated music room.

I'm working on some acoustic treatment, I'll see how that goes, if things turn out positive then maybe I'll give it some more serious consideration.

Or the Franco Serblin Ktema's.

Or I'll have to change house

Joel, this is a great opportunity.
But try them out at your place if at all possible.
Ivan's room with Strads isn't that large either, if I recall well, and they sounded great.

You see, your AudioAficionado friends care for you, and help you to spend your money wisely.
