No - Thanks for the link - I think I need to read about those...!

Seems I'm heading in the opposite direction these days = minimalist

Nuuk's dipole. The glass wings make them look much smaller.

Hello Magnetar!

The only Saba speaker I have heard so far looked like this:
http://cgi.ebay.de/Riesige-Saba-Stud...QQcmdZViewItem
with 12"/ovalis/horn supertweeter.
The ovalis doesn´t need a supertweeter, and I believe it was mainly added to compensate the treble loss of these times´ cardridges and output trannies. The sound is seemless, not a highend midrange with some treble, like some modern fullrange drivers. It is very soft, more like an old radio than like a modern speaker, but rather precise. On axis the supertweeter doesn´t match very well, I find, not only because it is too prominent. I don´t know the famous 4" tweeter that is used from 5kHz up with the 8" drivers, but since the Saba sound is so different from today´s hifi I believe it only makes sense in the context.

Regards,
Oliver

I use SABAS in my greencone OB. And yes there is something special about them. But they have also flaws so im searching further this time with modern drivers.

Flaws are... not very straight FR /i suppose this is kind of sound that people like about them/ - this leads to honky sound thats its very hard to be filtered.

Tweeters beaming like hell and not as detailed as modern ones.

After time i dont hear fancy sound but coloration so i quit.

Pluses was - very dynamic uncompressed sound - very fast reaction to transient - very sensitive about 100db

I has two different pairs with different magnets /both alnico/ but basic character was same.

Now they are serve very well in my HT. They reproduce voice very well and uncompresed dynamic in movie is good thing.
