In July 2016 issue of Hifi News there is Munich High End 2016 show report stating that Falcon Acoustics has come up with a B139 replacement. Does this mean that we will see Concerto and maybe even legendary AusKef/Falcon 53 crossover again?

Nice to see this to become true...

If they retool T52 SP1049 I can rebuild my Cantatas to perform well. B110 SP1057 seems to age well, but B139 and especially T52 seems to have some age related problems even I have several sets from mid 70´s... I have used Cantatas recently with late 70´s Macintosh C26 and early 80´s MC2125. Everything seems to be quite well when listenins something like Diana Kralls All For You tribute to Nat King Cole Trio or Atomic Rooster In Hearing Of, but hf seems to be brittle and one dimensional when listening orchestral recordings or other full blown material.
