Sonus Faber is known for giving all of the details the attention they deserve. Stepping into the Olympica line adds a luxurious flair with highly detailed sound. Cabinets are finished and trimmed in real 'solid' woods, hi-quality leather and polished aluminum similar to that of their speakers in the $50K+ range. Specially designed and built drivers are specifically fitted into these cabinets creating a speaker to be longed for.
The Olympica III is the largest, flagship product in the line. It includes the precision detail and naturalness of the other Olympica's while solidly grounding the low end with the addition of a 3rd woofer in its larger cabinet. To most listeners these are capable of reference level performance, especially in the mid-frequencies. They play well with many quality amplifiers and are capable of providing a luxurious warmth and tonality that's truly satisfying to listen to for long sessions.
This pair is used and has some cosmetic flaws. However the drivers, grills and hardware look new. There are a few scratches and scuffs (all shown in the photos) and we'll as a cracked upper trim edge. We have not attempted any repairs so you can clearly see the flaws. With a bit of filler, stain and shoe polish, the flaws could be easily hidden. No part of the speakers responsible for sound has any damage and the speakers play flawlessly.
