Upgrading Speakers

Does it make sense to upgrade my speakers to Sonus Faber Olympica Nova III from the Sonus Faber Sonetto V. connected to Moon 390 and Moon 330A respectively. I love the Sonus Faber sound so I want to stay with the brand but when I consider the price point of the Nova !! relative to the Moon amplification I'm not sure.Also love the Moons.

@ghdprentice That makes total sense. Fortunately I have a local dealer I've visited in the past that carries the full line, I've always been curious about in thinking about future next steps from the Focals.

I spent an hour yesterday auditioning the Olympica Nova III at the local dealer's listening to a wide range of musical genres. When I got home I then went through the same genre assortment listening on the Sonetto V's. there was a marked improvement in the clarity, detail, sound-stage and overall dimensionality (if such a word actually exists) in the presentation of the music from the Nova III.  Bearing in mind the Nova III is thrice as expensive as the Sonetto I'm not sure that I can justify spending three time as much as I did to replace Sonetto with Nova III. I'd be grateful for links to any actual comparisons between those two models if anyone has seen any.


You must also consider the venue. it is not inconceivable that they might not sound a lot better in your room, perhaps with your equipment.
