My passion for music, as well as my interest for musical instruments and their materials, have lead my research since the early’80. Lutes and violin, through the use of wood, strings, their forms and harmony of their constitution, have inspired my systems. – Franco Serblin

 

LIGNEA

"After three years of research and development, LIGNEA, one of the last projects conceived by Franco Serblin, has become a reality. During all the steps, I always followed his teaching and his “modus operandi” for every single detail. Today I wish to affirm that the value we give to things is the meaning we put in them The value I attribute to the LIGNEA project is the profound esteem I always had for Franco."

    Harmony is the result of the need to blend in a single loudspeaker the knowledge and the love for wood with the passion for the research. It is this sense of true harmony that overwhelms us when these elements combine in perfect balance.

    ACCORDO

     
    I have always loved small speakers, for their discreet presence, for their suitability in less critical environments, for the “magic” which they often are able to create in music reproduction. With "Accordo", I followed design patterns that are particularly dear to me. A sound, a voice capable of reaching the depths of the soul

    Franco Serblin’s visual aesthetic was very refined; just look at his speakers. But, he also had a very specific aural aesthetic. As such, the Accordos are very ‘Serblin specific’ to placement. More specific than any speaker I’ve reviewed. This care offers musical dividends that will erase the time you have spent to set up. Be patient. And also with break in.
