I am selling a pair of Sonus Faber Liuto Monitor Speakers with stands. These are the black model as you can see in the photographs. They are in Very Good condition. The only flaw is two small spots on the cover cloth of the left speaker, which can be seen in the photo. Otherwise the speakers would be listed as excellent condition, as there are no dings or scratches in the speakers themselves. They are from a non smoking home and sound great !
In tonality and general sonics, the Liuto Monitor hews to the Sf company line by focusing first on capturing natural richness and a bit of romance throughout the midrange. This is consistent with my experience of Sonus faber. Its speakers have a flair for the dramatic, imparting an almost operatic dimension to the sound. At a mere 13″ tall the Liuto Monitor has a lighter overall balance than the three-way Liuto, but that is to be expected, as it must make do without the virtues of a dedicated midrange driver. Still, I found its midrange character often echoed the warmth and fleshiness of its sibling, if not the sheer dynamic zing.
