Sonus Faber Venere 3.0 Home Theater Speaker System

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction to the Sonus faber Venere 3.0 Speaker System

This Sonus faber home theater speaker system is based on the new Venere 3.0 floor standing speakers, the flagship of the Venere line. The Veneres are designed in Italy and include drivers designed from the ground up specifically for this speaker line. The drivers are made exclusively for Sonus faber by some of the best suppliers on the planet. The Veneres even have the famous Sonus faber lyre-shaped cabinets.

What sets them apart, however, is that they are assembled in China which means they are available at a surprisingly affordable price. That means you can get a system with a bona fide high end pedigree which offers a taste of the Sonus Faber line at a very attainable price point.

This system also included Venere's Center and Wall models with a REL T9 thrown in to handle the low bass making for a complete 5.1 system with great promise.
