Product Description

Flagship of the Venere line, the 3.0 stands out through its larger cabinet, wider frequency response, and its implementation of a driver dedicated entirely to midrange frequencies. This is a three-way floor speaker characterised by the typical Lyre form, a homage to its 'mother' Aida and at the same time is a key functional and aesthetic element of great prestige.

Overview

The Venere series combines Sonus faber's more than thirty years of speaker design with state- of-the-art computer modelling and critical listening sessions. The loudspeaker's enclosure incorporates precision CNC machined pieces that are assembled, and refined manually. Finally, but no less important, are the internal components. All of the drive units are custom-built by the finest international manufacturers for Sonus faber. The crossovers for the Venere series have been designed using component parts of the highest quality - even the speaker terminals are engineered to provide a secure connection to your speaker cable and guarantee the highest quality signal transfer! This careful selection of materials and strict quality control during production ensures the sound quality, cosmetic appearance and durability of the speaker.

Cabinets By Italy: The lyre shaped cabinet provides excellent structural rigidity and control of spurious resonances, making sound clear, detailed and extremely dynamic. The front reflex also facilitates the placement of the speaker by avoiding unwanted reflections with the rear wall.

The 3.0 has a baffle characterised by waveguides, which allow for harmonious housing of the driver and give a vivid and engaging sound; the same inclined position of the baffle facilitates proper timing in all environments, ensuring great listening every time. The tempered glass used in the base and top and the aluminium in the adjustable feet are the materials which unite the Venere line and give a contemporary edge to every model.

Drivers By Germany: Equipped with two 180mm woofers in Curv, a 150mm midrange also in CurvTM and a 29mm silk dome tweeter made by the German company DKM, a European leader in driver production.

Set-Up By You: As with all the speakers in the Venus line, the 3.0 also stands out for its ease of use and to set up as well as for its magical ability to "disappear" leaving only the music as the protagonist. An ideal candidate for creating an excellent 2-channel system in good sized environments or to set up an evolved and engaging home theatre system.

Venere by Sonus faber: The role of any loudspeaker is to reproduce an original musical event, making it live again and provide the same emotions we feel when listening to an orchestra, rock band, jazz trio or powerful movie soundtrack. This is why Sonus faber designs speakers as musical instruments, and why we believe great sound depends, to a large extent, on the acoustic chamber - just like a stringed musical instrument.

Design: The construction of the acoustic chamber is of great importance to the tonal balance of a loudspeaker. Sonus faber has always been a leader in the development of cabinet shapes and proportions that guarantee exceptional control of internal resonances, driver stability and create an ideal acoustic environment. It was a natural choice that the Venere series to be inspired by the shape of the Lyre. Applied to the form of a speaker, it ensures the absence of parallel internal surfaces, controls air movement inside the cabinet that creates sound that is dynamic, clean, rich in musical detail yet at the same time, highly natural in tone. The successful realisation of sonic requirements and the balance of form and function drove Venere's overall design aesthetic.

Our Take

Sonus faber is confident that in the end, the best assessment of our design choices is listening with the human ear. This has always been a key principle that has driven the design of our products since the founding of the company. In the research phase, each component is conceived and designed with these criteria in mind. The world's best driver manufacturers craft all Venere drive units to Sonus faber's specific requirements and additional optimisations are carried out during the manufacturing phase providing further enhancements prior to final assembly. Extreme care is taken in the design of the crossover network in an effort to meet their high standards since choices regarding the type of network and component parts combined with the drivers, are fundamental to the sonic performance of the speaker. So while the Venere series is designed using specialised computer software, in the final phase of their development, everything is perfected and reviewed by ear, because the ultimate goal of Sonus faber is to deliver the satisfaction and emotion of music listening.
