Sonus Faber Liuto Monitor

The trend towards small, yes sometimes invisible speakers is hard to stop. Audiophiles like to see this development with concern, to be able to have but sub-sat sets replace not just the reputation of being a classic stereo. The solution: a highendige compact box which can keep at least at normal listening volume today with moderate shaped stand models.

  1. Sonus Faber Liuto monitor
  2. Data sheet

Sonus Faber, the Italian specialist in fine woods, called his new compact box full-bodied Liuto monitor. The second name is an indication that it is committed in addition to schöngeistigem sound mainly to acoustic honesty. She is also the unusual material for Sonus relationships, yet elegantly curved and perfectly processed down to the finest detail housing. Unusually narrow it tapers to the rear to give no chance to resonances in the volume. Similar to a lute – Italian Liuto – which explains the first part of the name would be. While this instrument popular in Renaissance and Baroque filigree design promotes natural vibrations, is that thick sound wall of the box and damped with a soft leather surface.

The chassis not to put on mass production, but can be custom-made in a Norwegian specialists make: so the 15 Woofer membrane consists of conventional polypropylene, these will be brought but as well as the surround with a special Thermo process in a resonance-free structure. This is also necessary for the drivers plays up to 3500 Hz up. Furthermore the tweeter – a classic single inch model with silk membrane and superior sound leadership takes over gently
With its small dimensions, the Sonus resembled a graceful Karateka, who too high competed in two weight classes. However, sonically she is no lightweight. The strong room damped she filled with Jon Lord crossover masterpiece “Sarabande” with a Hollywood suspiciously large and colorful panorama. The B & W CM5 beat similar to soft tones, achieved a few points more in the bass cellar for themselves, left the musical scene in Handel’s “Messiah” (Katzschner, DHM), in this case with a true lute however accompanied, in comparison to the strikingly realistic projecting Sonus also something in the abstract. The Liuto harmonized perfectly with plucked instruments: the gently blown tenor saxophone by Yuri honing in addition to gnarled shredded double bass (“Star Tracks”, in-acoustics) presented them with impressive impulse fidelity and amazing authority. Only, if the drum was added, the testers missed but the air push, as only larger boxes can really produce him. With regard to resolution, must fear little competition the Liuto.
