David Price has posted a review of the Sonus Faber Venere 2.5 loudspeakers (€2500) at Hi-Fi Choice. His conclusions:
“Although not quite the most forensic or revealing at the price, this speaker boasts a wonderfully smooth and sumptuous balance that’s delightful to set ears on, yet still exhaustively imparts the music embedded in any recording. It’s a very mature performer in a way that’s frankly unexpected at the price- one where many rivals all too easily betray their lack of breeding. Factor in the superlative build, styling, finish and pedigree – and Sonus faber’s new Venere 2.5 floorstanding speaker is pretty hard not to love.”
