Dominating the room were two sets of speakers new to me. I heard the Rosso Fiorentino Volterra ($11,950/pair), a most attractive Italian 2-1/2–way low floorstander designed by Francesco Rubenni (pictured). Boasting a range of 38 Hz–100kHz with its optional "ultrasonic generator" (a Murata supertweeter), the Rosse speaker offers a 6 ohm nominal impedance and an 87dB sensitivity. The bottom 8" woofer is sealed, and the mid 6.5" woofer is vented. To be unveiled at the end of March at the Munich show is the larger Siena, which will boast a frequency response of 25Hz–100kHz. I can't wait until it makes it to the USA.
