    I went to a demo at a person home in Orlando and they had the Nola 3-piece open baffle BRIO TRIO system, not to bad , at all.

    I have been after a pair of really good standmount speakers for a while and recently bought some MicroOnes. Very happy with mine, really incredible things.

    Norman,

    The T&F ART caught my attention ever since Lukasz mentioned them on Facebook some time back.
    What system did you hear them with?

    Regards.

    The Art's sound great with high-powered tube amps and solid state but even my 300b Melody push pull AN300b at 26wpc drives them more than sufficiently.

    Rosso Fiorentino Fiesole and Diapason Astera; if musicality and tonality is your thing, they're hard to beat at their respective price points.

    At a 2nd hand dealer in Lausanne some 7 years ago. Even the dealer was in amazement as he demoed the speakers to me. Since then I ran into Andreas Freidl at several shows and we talk a bit about his design concepts.

    I told Lukasz about them long before he heard them. LoL

    I think Geardaddy bought the Isis model.

When I was setting up the stands/bases, I thought I was setting up a piece of outdoor furniture, surely not a pair of high end speaker stands . They were also hard to sell.
    I use mine with a pair of custom made Vibex stands.

    Stereodesk is selling a pair of Art's for 50% off (with stands) for Black Friday. That's $2,500! If I didn't already have a pair in beautiful Zebra wood I would jump all over these. Here's a link. No affiliation, of course: http://stereodesk.com/collections/bl...nd-friedl-arts
