I listened to the SabrinaX at a local dealer last spring. I thought they sounded excellent, but I wasn’t wowed. The bass was fast, and there was more of it than I expected based on reviews and frequency roll off charts I’d seen. The mids were solid, and the highs were as well, without being fatiguing. The soundstage was wide and pretty deep. In general, the speakers were very articulate — I felt I was hearing everything in the signal, without smearing. The timbre was good. Also and significantly, I didn’t perceive any weaknesses — the speakers did everything well (apart from very low bass extension, of course). But I really wanted to be wowed, and for whatever reason I didn’t feel the magic. Perhaps I was having a bad ear day. I spent a couple of hours listening to some of my music, as well as music the dealer provided. The system was solid, and tracked what I have at home, with the exception of some 5-figure speaker cables — Valhallas, I think.
I went back to the drawing board, researched a bunch more and two weeks ago took delivery of the Perspective2 Graphene. (Aaron at Now Listen Here has been great to work with, as was Jeff Joseph.) I’m very happy so far. I posted a few notes capturing my initial impressions on a thread started by Prof. You can find that if you want more. Actually, I strongly recommend you read the entire thread — it contains insightful commentary (by others) on a variety of speakers in the range you are looking at, including the Perspectives; I think DeVore is in the thread title. The listening session with the SabrinaX is too far in the past to make meaningful comparisons, but I feel the magic with the Perspectives. Or perhaps I’m feeling recency or purchase confirmation bias. In any case it’s working for me.
I don’t think that either speaker would be a bad choice. They are both excellent.
