    Default OOOOH Rare speakers - info please

    Hi all...

    Does anyone have information on 'Saba' speakers. They are from Germany, and rare, but I can't find anything. Someone local to me has put up four 'Model 80' speakers, and a Saba 9120 Receiver. I found one post on Audiokarma that had very vague information, and that's really it. Thanks in advance for any info you may lend, and happy holidays to everyone!

    If they are the ones I am thinking of they have eight drivers in each cab kind of all over the place.

    They are known for there green drivers. Especially a 6x9 looking one that is very good at mids and highs. A ton of DIYers like this speaker.

    I have not heard them in a million years and don't really remember what they sounded like.

    Here's a brochure from ebay--Ad says "Model 80", brochure says "Monitor 80" so not sure that's the correct one.

    I didn't see model 80's on Ebay...I saw a brochure only. I'll recheck. The SABA's that were on there were expensive though. Not sure where the Model 80's fit in. I did request pictures, but no response yet. I found a few pics and stats on the receiver - but no idea if it sounds good or not :) Also, if it is a German receiver, are there any power issues wtih plugging it in. Inquiring minds want to know :)

    Anyone actually hear any SABA speakers?

    I am thinking of ones that are much older than that. Those look like just about everything the Japanese manufacturers made in the 80's.

    Wouldn't expect much from them.

    Here are some links for you. Hope this is the correct model since I found next to nothing on the model 80. If this is the wrong model skip to the last link. Good luck on your quest.

    I COULD ask my wife to translate, since she's a german teacher, BUT - then she'd know I was looking into new audio gear - and that's a no-no :) Anyone care to make out anything written? And woudl still love to hear if anyone has actually heard any SABA gear.

    Thanks much for the links!
