Sonus Faber Venere 1.5 bookshelf speakers
The Stereophile review of the Venere 1.5 brilliantly captures the unique character of the baby Venere 1.5 - small in size but not in sound. Here's the excerpt. Call us for an audition. I am sure you will agree.
In the Venere 1.5, Sonus Faber has produced a natural-, involving-, detailed-, and dynamic-sounding loudspeaker. The Venere shares some of the magic of the more expensive Sonus Faber speakers I've heard in various locations over the years. As such, it's a testament to the ability of creative speaker designers to trickle technology down from the highest of the high end to affordable prices. Without a doubt, it's the most visually attractive bookshelf speaker I've reviewed, and its appearance is likely to blend in with a variety of décors, as well as earn high approval from spouses. Finally, the Venere 1.5's tiny footprint belies the fact that, with any type of music, it was capable of reproducing big music at volume levels that tricked me into thinking I was hearing much larger speakers. I began missing the little Venere 1.5s the moment they left my listening room. A stunning achievement.
the 2 way bookshelf.
Venere 1.5 is a bookshelf speaker with its own stand and characterised, like all models in the entire line, by the Lyre shape. Also for this model, the particular construction of the cabinet, a tribute to our flagship Aida, provides a solution to the problem of internal spurious resonance and gives a rear aerodynamic profile which prevents criticality with the wall behind the speaker.
The front positioning of the reflex conduct also makes placement in the environment even easier and enhances the potential of the drivers (one mid-woofer with a Curv™ cone and a 29mm tweeter with silk dome created by DKM) thus generating sound that is fresh, fast and always very exciting. The sloping front baffle, featuring curved lines, allows for perfect timing and effective 'dialogue' between the drivers, always ensuring an enthralling listening experience.Particular attention was given to the stand, with a tempered glass base and its adjustable aluminium feet, it confirms its belonging to the Venere family, providing fluidity of style but also functionality: the feet allow for the effective coupling to the floor, producing sound that is even cleaner and more vivid. This 2 way, like all members of the Venere family, is easy to use and suitable for placement in a variety of 2 channel, multi-channel or home theatre environments.
