Does owning 2 pair of Sonus faber come close to 2 pairs of Tannoy’s!?
Apart from the sound i really like the way both are put together, i appreciate good workmanship.
What i really like about the Sterling is the ease of setup, Francis said they were plug and play and he was right.

Now, should i change my amps? :? :lol:
Cheers, Paul

enjoy them.

while they are indeed 'plug-n-play', experiment with the front ports/vents and the crossover settings. i had them set at the normal level and it sounded a bit lazy. moving it up changed the character of the mids and very much to my liking. try them...

I set the lowest level while playing a Patricia Barber track, she went to sleep in mid song :lol:
Same setting with some Roy Ayers 70's funk sounded more "Live" :D
Amazing! Always something new to learn or enjoy.

Nice to see that Stirling has found a new home... and the new owner is enjoying it as I did with them before...

When that becomes vintage or an antique... I can help in its provenance... :D
