Franco Serblin Accordo Goldberg

The Franco Serblin Accordo Goldberg loudspeakers are remotely similar in appearance to a musical instrument. Not that strange, actually!

Designed in Italy by an Italian furniture and instrument maker. That is the legacy of the Franco Serblin Accordo Goldberg speakers. Franco Serblin founded Sonus Faber in the early 1980s. He sold that company in 2006 to start a new brand under his own name. He took with him his expertise in luxury Italian furniture, working with then unique curved cabinet walls and using quality materials such as exotic woods and Italian leather. Sadly, Serblin passed away in 2013. It meant that in his lifetime he saw only one (and the first) speaker leave the production space: the Ktêma. But: he also left a legacy in the form of numerous designs, concepts and drawings.

Inspired by stringed instruments (and Bach)

The Franco Serblin Accordo Goldberg loudspeaker is one of those designs from the master’s legacy. Naturally handcrafted. To which is true that it is special anyway when the company releases a new speaker at all. The name, by the way, comes from Bach’s Golberg Variations. And a classic design like this fits in perfectly with that, of course. We’re talking about a two-way bookshelf speaker, equipped with a 180 mm mid-lowrange driver and a 29 mm silk dome tweeter. The walnut cabinet (and its shape) was based on the appearance of snare instruments.

For a pair of Franco Serblin Accordo Goldberg speakers, you’ll have to pay £8888 GBP.
