Sonus faber Venere Center Center-Channel Speaker
Form Follows Function: Lyre-Shaped Sonus faber Venere Center Center-Channel Loudspeaker Eliminates Resonances, Provides Organic Sound and Sterling Clarity
Two Curv-Coned Woofers, Two Front-Reflex Conducts, and Wooden Base Make Sonus faber Venere Center Center-Channel Loudspeaker a Top Performer No Matter Where It Is Placed: Seamless Harmonization With Other Venere Speakers
Sonus faber states that its superbly built Venere Center center-channel loudspeaker ensures optimal performance of the ensemble. Indeed, this gorgeous-sounding and beautiful-looking center is designed through and through to complete and complement an array of main speakers and surrounds. A classic example of form follows function, its lyre-inspired shape eliminates unwanted internal parallel surfaces while the curved walls do away with internal resonances. A German-made, silk-dome tweeter produces eminently natural sound distinguished by organic timbres, stunning clarity, and savory details. Center is rounded out (pun intended) with two Curv-coned woofers and a baffle with two front-reflex conducts that allow for versatile, easy placement in a variety of environments. You'll also feel confident placing Center in a variety of positions thanks to its wooden base. But what you'll love most is how Center seamlessly harmonizes with other Venere speakers, giving you home-theater sound you never dreamed you could have at this price. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"While far more expensive center speakers can deliver more texturally nuanced dialogue with greater in-room believability, the Venere Center avoided the lumpy congestion and nasality that some modestly priced centers exhibit."
– Michael Fremer, Home Theater
Curved Walls Eliminate Internal Resonances, Wooden Base Allows for Fine-Tuning
Recalling the Lyre shape and offering a solution that ensures no internal parallel surfaces, the Venere Center cabinet is characterized by its curved walls that eliminate internal resonances. A 29mm silk-dome tweeter is produced by DKM and guarantees the dispersion of sound, providing a natural timbre and very detailed performance. The front section of Center also holds two active mid-woofers with Curv™ cones and a baffle set apart by curved lines that produce a decidedly live sound and perfect integration between the driver and the cabinet. Center's baffle is distinguished by two front reflex conducts, a solution that permits simple placement in any listening environment. An elegant wooden base allows for fine-tuning of Center's inclination. Its cabinet can be positioned according your specific needs.
