Recently I had some time to kill and needed to relax so I went upstairs into one of our sound lounges to have a bit of a play with some speakers and to try and unwind myself after a pretty stressful week.
Here at Audio Solutions we recently acquired Sonus Faber as a brand so I thought I would give a pair of their Luito’s a try. I must admit, I had yet to sit down and give the Luito’s a good listen but knowing the sound of other Sonus Fabers I excepted them to do their job of relieving me of my pent up stress.
I connected them up with a Luxman L550AII integrated amp, the same amp that Lucas reviewed a few weeks back, and the Luxman D-05 CD player. I also used some Kimber Select interconnects and speaker cable.
So the outcome!
Wow,wow,wow. To put it simply, for a speaker that retails for $6999, the sound stage was unbelievable and you’d be forgiven for thinking someone had secretly placed some speakers behind you! These speakers are almost a contradiction in terms. To have so much detail without sounding forward and bright seems impossible.
If I could use one word to describe the sound, VELVET would be the word.
