Sonus Faber Toy Loudspeakers

The new Sonus Faber Toy line brings the company’s products down to an entirely new price point. Although these are the lowest-priced speakers from Sonus Faber, they still possess some unique features, such as full leather cladding and ring-radiator tweeters.

The three models that make up the line include (from left to right) the Toy Center ($1000), the Toy Tower floorstander ($2700 per pair), and the Toy Monitor ($1500 per pair). Believe it or not, the all-leather outer covering is actually less expensive to manufacture than Sonus Faber's traditional wood-paneled finish and is partly responsible for the attractive pricing. We liked how the speakers looked regardless of price.

As you can see, the Toy Center is a dual-woofer design that is front ported for ease of placement.

At the entrance of the room was a micro system using Toy monitors, Pro-Ject's mini electronics, and iPod iTouch and Nano sources.
