"The larger of two standmounts in the Venere range, the 2.0 is, as the name suggests, a two-way design, with a letter-box port at the front and bi-wire terminals at the rear. The company doesn’t make its own drive units, but ‘specs’ units to its requirements from drive unit manufacturers of repute; this means Sonus Faber can take advantage of the skills of the driver maker, while getting a 29mm soft dome tweeter and 180mm composite polyproplyene ‘Curv’ cone woofer. The DKM-derived tweeter sits in a very deep oval horn, but this oval is wider top and bottom, yet again to allow better dispersion when slightly back-tilted. It’s also a distinctly high-end loudspeaker in terms of soundstage and overall refinement. That tweeter especially is a real honey, making a sound that’s extremely smooth and very accurate right up into the upper registers... There is something intrinsically right about this speaker and its sound...
Too many high-end entry points act as a sweet taste of the good stuff, enticing the listener to upgrade and spend more. This doesn’t, the Venere is all you need". THE ABSOLUTE SOUND MAGAZINE
I'm including the Sonus Faber custom stands with this sale (boxed separately). They cost $399.00 extra when bought separately. Overall condition is excellent, a few swirls on the glass top from cleaning. I bought them new 3 years ago. Comes with original box and packing materials. It is triple boxed for extra safe shipping.
