Coming from Sonus Fabers previously, still a great-looking system.


Like our other client SS, Danny can rightfully claim to be an authority of room treatment products, after testing and installing the major brands represented in this roomWith the right products, any room can be tamed, without damaging the integral harmonics.


It's easier to tame speakers of their frequency extremes, than not to have it in the first place.  A small room should never be a deterrent in having good floorstanders (emphasis on good) in them.
