Unveiling the Franco Serblin KtÍma in Gloss Black

The System:
 The World acclaimed Emm Labs XDS1 SACD CD player taking care of the Digital front end. With multiple Digital inputs this unit allows for versatility to send any digital stream into the DAC section. The Esoteric drive allows for the Highest CD playback available....
The Amplification, the Emm Labs Pre2SE running into a Plinius SA REF Class A power amp. Amazing control and detail from this combo.
Power filtering, Triton/Typhon with all ZTron Anaconda power/signal & speaker cable take care of the signal path from source to loudspeakers.
The Lovely Franco Serblin KtÍma Loudspeakers acting as the voice of this system brings out the Reality and Scale of full Orchestral sound with such ease.....

All in All...KtÍma....A possession for Life.

Jo,clean and neat to the point of almost being clinical! Even the floor and lovely carpet look brand new.

I'm sure it will sound spectacular in the room being prepared for it,no doubt well treated for good acoustics.

I have to say, not too sure about the look of the speakers, loved the red robes but the top/front view reminded me of Alien
