Sonus Faber Venere 3.0 floor standing speakers
Soundstage Ultra has this to say about the Venere 3.0 3-way loudspeakers
It can play large and loud, it can render recordings of both high and low resolution in enjoyable fashion, its substantially neutral tonal character won’t distract you with speaker colorations, and it can do all of this while looking spectacular. In this respect, it’s an easy recommendation for listeners both serious and casual.
flagship of the Venere line.
Flagship of the Venere line, the 3.0 stands out through its larger cabinet, wider frequency response, and its implementation of a driver dedicated entirely to midrange frequencies. This is a three-way floor speaker characterised by the typical Lyre form, a homage to its 'mother' Aida and at the same time is a key functional and aesthetic element of great prestige.
The lyre shaped cabinet provides excellent structural rigidity and control of spurious resonances, making sound clear, detailed and extremely dynamic. The front reflex also facilitates the placement of the speaker by avoiding unwanted reflections with the rear wall. Equipped with two 180mm woofers in CurvTM, a 150mm midrange also in CurvTM and a 29mm silk dome tweeter made by the German company DKM, a European leader in driver production. The 3.0 has a baffle characterized by waveguides, which allow for harmonious housing of the driver and give a vivid and engaging sound; the same inclined positionof the baffle facilitates proper timing in all environments, ensuring great listening every time. The tempered glass used in the base and top and the aluminium in the adjustable feet are the materials which unite the Venere line and give a contemporary edge to every model. As with all the speakers in the Venus line, the 3.0 also stands out for its ease of use and to set up as well as for its magical ability to "disappear" leaving only the music as the protagonist. An ideal candidate for creating an excellent 2-channel system in good sized environments or to set up an evolved and engaging home theatre system.
