We might be moving, and my Cessaro four way horns ,sy not fit into the new place ( they hardly fit in the old place).
Cessaro use excellent TAD compression drivers, Supravox dynamic drivers and extremely high quality parts/fittings.
They are tall and weigh a ton, literally a metric tonne.
Recommended retail is expensive ,condition is perfect, piano black Corina construction with an off white mid range horn.

Yes exactly. But so do tractrix horns if I'm not mistaken, in fact the two end up quite hard to tell apart once you introduce a mouth flare on the tractrix, as these seem to have.



Anyway, these look like very interesting speakers, good luck with the sale.

Incredibly beautiful craftsmanship in the construction!

Supravox, he uses TAD 15” drivers but I think TAD stopped making their 12” hence the French driver.

I always wanted to hear a large system based on TAD compression drivers and contemporary horns.
I can imagine that they sound very very good.
