Liuto, Italian for lute. There are few things classier looking in hi-fi than a Sonus Faber speaker. Irrespective of whether the brand's traditional leather and wood mix appeals, there's no denying the look is as luxurious as they come.
The Liuto Monitor streamlines the traditional Sf form without sacrificing heritage accents. That continuity includes the lute-shaped enclosure, the engraved brass nameplate, the warmth of the leather-like grained surfaces, and the sculpted end caps of the vented rear panel. The stands are works of art—graceful and rigid, with a top plate that is cross-drilled for securing it to the threaded holes in the bottom of the Monitor’s enclosure. Heavy knurled knobs allow even chunky fingers to tighten down the included spikes and mounting screws. Frankly, unless you’re dropping the Liuto Monitor on a shelf, I can’t imagine living without the stands. <click here>
Once ready these are lovely speakers. They're fast and articulate, casting out a sound of impressive cohesion across the frequency band.
These speakers are at their considerable best when asked to produce acoustic instruments. They work a charm with an old mono recording of Miles Davis's Birth of the Cool where the speaker's agility, lightness of touch and impressive low-level dynamics come to the fore.
The same strengths are equally apparent with larger scale symphonies such as Tchaikovsky's No.6, but here they're coupled to an impressively expansive sound stage that pleases with both its scale and layering.
The Liutos are rather fussy about positioning and work best well away from all walls and (in our room at least) with a strong amount of angling towards the listening position.
Do this and you'll be greeted with a sonic image of great solidity and scope. The way these speaker project the sound is a major strength and it means that once properly set-up the Liutos simply ‘disappear' within their well crafted sound stage <click here>
