Sonus Faber Electa Amator III & Gravis VI Sub – RMAF 2018

By | October 29th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Sonus Faber actually had two rooms rocking at RMAF this year. The bigger setup featured the new line-array XRT2.1Ks we covered at our visit to the NY World of McIntosh secured to a pair of the MC1.25KW monos. A very nice sounding system in its own right, but our attention was drawn even closer to the secondary room which housed an MA8000 integrated and MC80 transport to a pair of the new Electa Amator III bookshelf-style speakers.

The two-way speakers were sitting next to a new Gravis VI ($7k) sub due out in early December, but at the time of my visit wasn’t hooked up.… Read the full article

RMAF 2018: McIntosh Labs, Sonus Faber and a Gorgeous Sea of Binghamton Blue

By | October 28th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , |

Can I talk about McIntosh Labs without mentioning the beautiful blue meters? Can anyone? Should I even bother?

As I wandered down the corridors at the 2018 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, those ubiquitous blue meters beckoned me to enter the two Mac rooms and bask in that legendary glow. I can’t resist this timeless gear, mostly because I’ve always had a secret lust in my heart for Mac ever since I first set the loading for my cartridge on a borrowed McIntosh MC2300 preamp via the remote control.… Read the full article

Sonus Faber Aida loudspeaker

By | September 18th, 2018|Categories: Stereophile|

In 1959, in their musical revue At the Drop of a Hat, the British musical-comedy team of Flanders and Swann sang their “Song of Reproduction.” It’s not about sex. The song mocks audiophiles (you thought this was something recent?) for how we spend “all of that money to get the exact effect of an orchestra actually playing in their sitting room.” Before launching into the song, Flanders quips, “Personally, I can’t think of anything I should hate more than having an orchestra playing in my sitting room!”

I’m here to tell you that there’s nothing I love more than having the sensation of an orchestra playing in my sitting room—or, more to the point, of being transported to the venue in which the orchestra was recorded.… Read the full article

Note: This is Part Two of this Sonus faber listening event coverage. Read Part One here. New Sonetto Loudspeakers Demo'd at the 1900 Building The celebration of the new Sonus faber Sonetto loudspeaker collection is noteworthy news for a few reasons, the first of which is fiscal. The eight Sonetto loudspeakers can be purchased for surprisingly less than princely sums (starting at about a grand), especially in comparison to the company’s other high-end speakers, whose prices extend well into the five-figure range (and beyond).… Read the full article

Sonus faber Sonetto Loudspeaker Event in Kansas City, Part One

Sonus faber Launches Sonetto Speaker Collection

By | July 4th, 2018|Categories: Audioholics|Tags: |

Sonus Faber Sonetto TweeterThe Italian loudspeaker manufacturer Sonus faber is perhaps the perfect example of the luxury side of high-performance audio. While other brands strive to build the audio equivalent of a Formula 1 racer, Sonus faber caters to the Bentley crowd, where performance is only one part of a complete, luxurious experience. Like its iconic sister brand, McIntosh (both companies are part of the McIntosh Group conglomerate), Sonus faber knows that its customers are willing to pay a premium for stylish design, beautiful materials, and exquisite craftsmanship.
