Sonus faber Electa Amator III Loudspeaker Review
November 16, 2019 § Leave a comment
“As you will have surmised, then, this loudspeaker isn’t just a device for superior reproduction of scale, space and, yes, rich bottom octaves: it’s also a champion with vocals. The interplay between Rawls and Reeves has long been one of my aural litmus tests, and the ‘III sailed through it with aplomb. Detail, controlled sibilants, ideal contrast in the vocal textures – the title track oozed warmth and realism, even sounding valve-like when driven by the D’Agostino Momentum Stereo.
On to Keb’ Mo’s Peace… Back By Popular Demand [Okeh/Epic EK92687] to hear the twang of the bottleneck guitar, the sublime piano on ‘Imagine’ – the Electa Amator IIIs simply sang. I could surely live with these, concerned with only one downside: I’d be up every night until 3am, trying to hear my entire record collection just one more time.
