John Atkinson has posted a review of the ENIGMAcoustics Sopranino electrostatic supertweeters ($3640/pair) at Stereophile. His conclusions:

“There is no doubt in my mind that EnigmAcoustics’ beautifully made and finished Sopraninos made a subtle but genuine improvement in the sound of my system with both the loudspeakers with which I tried them. There was a sense of loss every time I disconnected the supertweeters, the imaging losing some of that addictive palpability. But yes, at $3690/pair, plus $600 for the dedicated stands if needed, the Sopranino is an expensive means of achieving a small if worthwhile improvement to the sound of one’s system. And I am not sure how much of that improvement will be audible if the owner’s hearing cuts off at a lower frequency than mine. There is also the issue of the amplifier with which it is used being fazed by the Sopranino’s impedance. An audition will be mandatory prior to purchase. ”
