QUALITY OF BUILT
HARD TO DRIVE
NOT REALLY FULL SCALE
Summary: I imagine today is the great day for me compromises on my first impressions of the speakers sonus faber guarneri evolution. First notices packing: 3 boxes of 100 pounds each one. Packing is of a quality except standard. Disappointing the instruction manual which is miserly details on the assembly of the mounting with the heads. The brochure included is truely a piece of art. The reward appearances of the evolution high beyond reality. Sonority now it should be mentioned that the speakers are greedy because my my amplifiers become hotter than with my previous Egglestonwork ANDRA 3. The whole of the system being as follows: amplifiers LAMM M 2.2. preamplifier LAMM L2 reference, transport CEC TL0X been next to with an audionumerical converter FORMERLY JS1 MK3. Wiring is ensured by cables PURIST AUDIO DESIGN out of Bi wiring for high the speakers. Power cord are TARA LABS wich supply the power amplifiers. Sonority is very soft like is envisaged. In the sound there are much air and staging. The timbral respect is with return. The produced effect is very holographic and allows an excellent legibility of the musical passages. They describe perfectly the area where took place the recording. The tweeter is very discrete although it goes up at a frequency of 30,000 hertz. The low frequencies are not remain and fill up an overflow room well about it of average size to large, mine being of 23 feet by 23 feet with a ceiling of 8 feet. If you ever ask Yes they can full-fill a pretty decent average room for sure. There is much of depth in the sound and dynamics is very present although discrete. That to say of other, more at ease with certain types of music yes it is true. An approach which emphasizes the medium frequencies and the low medium frequencies, where all the action proceeds. Example the voice are chesty... The voices not need to mention it are soft, present and magic the staging of the traditional musical instruments is incredible a little as if the rate/rhythm were with the idle. The speakers now enable me to appreciate the presence of the 15 tubes in my system. Preferably the Evolution appreciates wattage of quality for good to be expressed. Tubes or transistors it is your taste, I prefer the hybrid design of the LAMM. They offer in a part of listening area of average size a very full sound did not fear. Better than my old ANDRA 3 can be ?, difference it is certain and surely less analytical and less ahead. To summarize the Evolution its good more than one high end speaker they are genuine musical instruments to the service of the demanding music lover. The sound is high, broad with much spatiality. Pushed with high volume they are effortless. They disappear literally from the living room and become like phantoms. I do not test the need to add sub woofer if that can answer the question of several among you. Is the Evolutions will be my last enclosures ? For the moment they have a serious subscription with me. With Sonus Faber Guarneri Evolution you do not listen to a sound reproduction you belong to the event. You will excuse the quality of the text my language first being French. Yes I forgot my H.P. are of red color violin but they are not still broken in. Don't forget there is surely "MAGIC" going out of these "small monitors". They are not even burn in. Une main de fer dans un gant de velours ? Sorry i think i am going back listening to the "Cowboy Junkies" "the trinity Session" if you don't mind.....
