    Kharma Exquiste Midi 3.0 vs Sonus Faber il Cremonese ex3me ?

    Hi everyone.
    I am a long time Sonus Faber user and love the brand because of its great deap soundstage but some times it is too warm and lack of treble detail. My speraker is at the reference line and limited to 50 pieces all over the world and has a düamond like berilium tweeter but it is even lacking some treble detail. I am using CH Precision C1.2+ X1 + M1.1 stereo (will add L1 soon) with all kubala sosna eletion cabling. My dealer suggested me to change my speaker with Kharma Exquisite Midi 3.0 He will try to bring it at my home to try but i want to know what to espect from this upgrade. Or is it really an upgrade
    Thanks

    Agencal -

    I’m surprised that your system is lacking treble detail. CH P is one of the most transparent component brands in the market; however, you don’t mention which SF speakers you own.

    The Kharmas are wonderful speakers and, I think, more transparent than SF specially with the diamond tweeter.

    Lastly, worth experimenting with cables.

    That in home audition is your best way to answer your question and trust your ears. I'm not that familiar with Karma. Although I'm not a fan of SF it seems odd beryllium would fall short on the high end. I personally would have to look for a speaker that leans more lively than SF.

    Definitely the midi exquisite 3.0 will be more airy and resolving.

    Sounds like its not your electronics.

    Doesn't the CH preamp have some sort of EQ controls or other sound shaping built it? If it does, have you tried it. I get its not adding something that is missing.
