Here's what Sonus Faber have to say;
Sonus Faber remains the best-known Italian speaker brand in this country. Its products are always stylish and built to very high standards. They usually have an extra touch of class to the finish too, and a visual flourish that most of the high-end competition can't quite match. More than that, the company's products tend to strike a well-judged sonic balance, treading the fine line between analysis and listenability brilliantly.
We reviewed and liked the original version of the Auditor back in February 2004. It was, and the M remains, the entry point into Sonus Faber's middle-market Cremona range.
New technology driversThe two generations of Auditor are pretty much the same size, shape and style, but the M version has a new mid/bass driver, re-engineered tweeter and re-profiled baffle. These changes make an already good speaker even better. For all its strengths, the original had a slightly veiled sound that traded outright insight for overall sweetness.
The new version hasn't lost any of the musicality but is capable of digging far deeper into a recording. You'll hear more of the layered instrumentation on Ravel's Bolero and keep hearing more as the piece gains in complexity. Dynamics are stronger and there are gains in speed, punch and agility.
Small but mighty speakersThese speakers are great all-rounders, sounding as happy with the likes of Kanye West as they do with a Shostakovich string quartet. Stereo imaging is precise and focused allowing the Auditors to disappear in a truly out-of-the box soundstage. These speakers do serious bass and high volume levels for their size, too.
