Franco Serblin NEWS - New LIGNEA Speaker
« on: May 26, 2016, 08:07:27 PM »
Franco Serblin need no introduction for those who have followed & Supported the Sonus Faber Brand over the past 35 years.

Founder of Sonus Faber, after he sold the company a few years back, started FRANCO SERBLIN, and some believe he kept his best designs for last.
After his unexpected death, his Son-in-Law; Massimiliano continued his work, and the latest offering has Franco's signature to the finest detail.

In his words:

After three years of research and development, LIGNEA,
one of the last projects conceived by Franco Serblin, has become a reality.
During all the steps, I always followed his teaching and his
“modus operandi” for every single detail.
Today I wish to affirm that the value we give to things
is the meaning we put in them
The value I attribute to the LIGNEA
project is the profound esteem I always had for Franco

I also think they look stunning! Serblin was an artist and this design is so fresh even though it is classical in signature.

I am hesitant to with my next comment as I don't want to erode my appreciation for the design and admiration for Mr Serblin, but I think the baffle is not sensitive to the overall organic and fluid shape of the rest of the design. Maybe the grill as a design element, that is probably intended to form a link with his other work, is not helping in my view.

Notwithstanding those minor criticisms, it is awesome and a fine tribute to Franco Serblin.

Stefan, maybe a guitar bridge was too obvious a design choice? Nice observation though.

I too have heard the Accordos, and having owned every Serblin version of SF except the Extrema and the Guarneri I can say that these are by far some of the clearest most articulate speakers I have ever heard. They are crystal clear and marvelous to listen to. IF you like instrumental and vocal these are for you, yes, they will play rock but to use them for rock only would be an absolute waste.

Over the years the Accordo has really grown on me.....a very unique product indeed, like it's designer......one in a lifetime.
