    Hi all,
    Have recently arranged to buy a pair of S/F Concertinos and wondered if anyone had any opinions on these?

    Thank You

    Not the home version , but did have a pair of concertino domus
    (which replaced the home) , if it's anything like the domus you will not be dissapointed .

    The high points are the imaging , and a very fluid sound ( go's nice with valves) .

    Bass is good for the size of the box , and tunefull .

    Word of warning , they like plenty of space around them to sound there best , even with a front port .

    What amp are you using ?

    Lovely little speakers, nearly bought a pair once... absolutely amazing what they can do for their size.

    Wonderful speakers, but I prefer a similar sized speaker of the also Italian brand Diapason.

    The Diapason Micra.

    It's a bit more open/transparent and sounds more detailed, sparkling, compared to the SF Concertino home.
    The SF sounds a bit warmer, more mellow.

    regards,

    Thanks for the opinions, just checked out those Diapason Micras , very nice too, i am a bit taken lately with these Italian speakers. A friend uses Chario Academy Millenium ones and the cabinets on them are beautiful, they sound very good too. I have picked up my Concertino's and I certainly feel i have moved up a league in quality, both in sound and in build.
