Sonus Faber Minima Vintage Loudspeakers

December 5, 2010

Wojciech Pacuła has posted a review of the Sonus Faber Minima Vintage loudspeakers ($2499/pair) at 6moons. His conclusions:

Each loudspeaker is a set of design choices and compromises. Such small and—considering build and finish quality—relatively inexpensive cabinets are affected by the laws of Physics even more than most. That makes the personality and vision of the designer, his personal sonic signature, so vital. Serblin's design might not be as old as the BBC LS3/5A, the precursor of the P3ESR, but it surely is no longer any novelty. If we look at it from this perspective we appreciate how certain things in the audio business were invented a long time ago while at present many manufacturers struggle to keep up with prior accomplishments.

The tweeter in the Minima Vintage is outstanding and key to its great sound. The design, cosmetics and spectacular sound create a truly extraordinary proposal for customers who must remember only one limitation – the speakers’ small size. Although they are different than the Harbeth, EBTB and RLS, they belong to the same group of products that allied with proper electronics and placed in a properly sized room will fulfill almost any dream of their owner. ‘Almost’ makes a difference but in this particular case it isn’t large.
