Sonus Faber Venere 2.5
Beautifully finished in black or white lacquer, the Venere 2.5 is a compact (43.2″ H by 13.3″ W by 17″ D), 2.5-way, reflex-loaded design with a 1.1″ fabric-dome tweeter, a 7″ Curv-cone mid/woofer, and a 7″ Curv-cone woofer. The cabinet’s sidewalls curve around to meet a very narrow rear panel just wide enough to accommodate a staggered array of four multiway terminals; the cabinet sits on a thick glass base plate that accepts four substantial spikes, the front pair nearly an inch longer than the rear, so that the entire cabinet tilts back to align the tweeter with the deeper woofer diaphragms. The sound was spacious, relaxed, and well balanced overall, with detailed mids and highs and a rich lower midrange, said KR. “The Venere 2.5 is not only provocatively sexy in appearance; it delivers,” he concluded. The Venere 2.5 exhibited an exaggerated midbass on the test bench, but offered “respectable measured performance” overall, said JA.
