Amazing Speakers that I purchased from an authorized dealer on 6/2/17 and took delivery on 6/9/17 so only a few weeks ago!! I have had some bad luck since then and this is the only reason I am selling.
Secrets of HT & HIFI Review:
While the Sonus faber Olympica speakers are by no means cheap, I cannot think of another speaker line near this price point that delivers as high a level of performance while being housed in such impeccably designed and finished cabinetry. For those of you who want to enjoy incredible sound without sacrificing your home’s decor, the Olympicas should be at the top of a very short list.
I have been searching for a new reference speaker system for my main media room since I started writing for Secrets over five years ago. My current system is very enjoyable for listening to music and movies, but was not really analytical enough to reveal the subtle differences between different components I had in for review. With that in mind, I started looking at components that excelled in some of the more traditional aspects of an audiophile product, i.e. retrieval of detail and outright neutrality. But every time I listened to speakers like that for an extended period of time, I realized there was no way I could live with them long-term. I don’t love speakers like that.
While they could sound great on a perfectly-produced source, those are few and far between. What I really needed was a speaker that was analytical enough for my reviewing job but still retained the sense of musicality and ease that I demand of components for my personal use. Above all, I had to experience an emotional connection to the source when listening to them. I was starting to feel like this couldn’t happen. Then the Sonus faber Olympica system showed up at my doorstep.
