Pearl Audio is happy to announce the arrival of Sonus Faber’s new speaker, the Venere S.
The lyre-shaped cabinet of the Sonus Faber Venere S, which stands for Signature, sweeps up from the rear, looking as if it was molded in a wind tunnel giving it flare and bravado to match the amazing acoustics. The front panel has a subtle curve, and its clean vertical lines extend all the way down the baffle, unobstructed by ports or the heads of driver mounting bolts. A flourish of brushed aluminum encircles each of the five drivers, while the raked top panel is a piece of black glass with the Sonus Faber logo laser-etched toward the front. The cabinet’s sweeping lines taper to a very narrow, flat rear panel on which are two pairs of five-way binding posts; jumpers for bi-wiring and bi-amping are included.
The physical profile of the Venere S is just stunning. The Venere S is the prettiest speaker I’ve ever seen. The S’s dimensions of 48.2”H x 15.2”W x 18.6”D make it a substantial proposition. It weighs in at 63.5-pounds the Venere S doesn’t have the most inert cabinet you can buy for $5000
I enjoyed every minute listening to Sonus Faber’s Venere S loudspeakers. With its stunning profile and attractive looks this speaker not only looks great buts sound great without compromise. What is surprising is that the Venere S combines visual beauty with a vibrant and neutral sound, while offering thorough bass. That makes a loudspeaker handmade by artisans in Sonus Faber’s workshop in Arcugnano, Italy, a bargain at $4999/pair. So come on in and listen for an audition you won’t be disappointed!
