Bottom Line:   
Sonus Faber Amati Anniversario is a really high end loudspeaker. Feed them with a amplifier and signal source in same high end class and you will have a music system you never get tired to listen to for ever. This speakers will give you all the musical information the orchestra can offer. From the big drums to the small piccolo flute, the wooden sound from the stings and the timbre of the cymbals and triangles. The stop and start time in the 2 new 220mm woofers with magnesium membranes are the most precis low frequency transducers available today. You can feel and hear this no over-shooting and precis bass-response.
The 150mm midrange device gives the well known Sonus Faber midrange, the timpani, brass and voices are clear and open. The new 25mm ring radiator tweeter give a superb transient response without any over-shooting in sound. The design wood and finish are in highest class. The speakers are art sculptures with high wife factor! The price is high but it is not easy to get better speakers in this class. I have experience with B&W 802 and 801 but SF Amati are better in all aspects.
Amati is no hard to drive speakers. Some times I use a 2x40W tube amplifier Hovland Sapphire with topp results but mainly I use a 2x400W Jeff Rowland 301.
No bad words can be said about this speakers only superlatives!
