Heritage & Manufacture:
The Sibelius CG is identical to the SG in every aspect, apart from the fact that its cone has a deep copper colour which some people prefer. The ‘CG’ is a limited edition of only 48 pairs. Please check for availability.
The Sibelius CG is designed to deliver extremely lifelike sound reproduction for all genres of music, but especially classical, jazz, folk, blues and rock. From solo voice to small ensembles, chamber, symphonic orchestras and full on rock – the Sibelius CG faithfully reproduces the full dynamics and realistic sound stage of the original performance.
The Sibelius cabinets are crafted from 3.2 cm thick French oak and take a total of 12 weeks to manufacture from start to finish. Each cabinet has its own visual signature and is matched with its left (or right) handed partner, prior to receiving its final colour finish.
Pairing: Because The Sibelius CG’s deliver so much detail (what comes in you hear) they are best paired with well designed, high quality amplifiers. This means; very low distortion, neutral and extremely dynamic. We have no specific preference whether the amplifier design is single ended ‘Class A’ triode vacuum tube, or high quality solid state. In our listening rooms we use all kinds of amplifiers, even a pair of high output, Class D mono-blocks. If we have a preference, it is usually for ‘Class A’ but we have also had very good results with current dumping amplifiers and AB (push-pull) amplifiers. Please contact us directly to discuss your specific situation and requirements.
