Years ago, when I first met CH, he asked me what do I think of Guarneri?  Of course, he didn't know I am a big fan of Franco Serblin, and I've owned Guarneri and Amati myself.  

I told CH that Guarneri happens to be one of my favorite monitor speakers.  It's a keeper.  Even if you ever upgrades speakers later, I would still keep the Guarneri.  In my opinion, the Guarneri isn't just a pair of speakers; it's a piece of art, a collectible, and the pinnacle of Sonus Faber.

Many years later, do the Guarneri still sound good ?  No, they don't........................... they sound awesome !!  The precision of the soundstage, the richness and full sound of the midrange, the sweet treble, and the unforgettable vocal; that's how Guarneri sounds.  Of course, it has its weakness, but with the right music, the sound of Guarneri is really hard to beat.  

Of course, CH spent a lot of time and effort to make his system sounds better.  With a full system of Burmester, and being the first owner of a full system of Siltech Double Crown cables in Vancouver; CH could have easily upgraded his speakers in the past.  Yet, he kept the Guarneri all the time.  I asked him why.  He told me that he has heard the new Sonus Faber, but he was rather disappointed.  So, he simply loves how they look and how they sound.
