In fact, that ceiling on headroom makes this one of the ultimate small-room designs. While many will be drawn by their striking and consciously asymmetrical looks, or the sublime finish, that only buys you some time on the end of a system. And the Accordo does so much more than that. Where the cynics only see a pretty box, the Accordo also sounds sensational and fills that small room with big sound. The timeless looks coupled with the excellent sound make this – more so than most speakers at its price – your potential ‘forever’ loudspeaker.
The Franco Serblin Accordo is a sumptuous looking loudspeaker with a sound that at once harks back to some of the best small speakers ever produced, yet does so without becoming a rose-tinted wayback machine and has a clean and extended treble that’s as modern as they come without sounding harsh or brash. It’s also a deceptive looking loudspeaker because it looks smaller than it is, and it’s very much a deceptive sounding loudspeaker because it sounds bigger than it is! But, most and best of all, it’s as entertaining to listen to as it is to look at.
