Sonner Audio was also getting great sound from its Legato Semi ($6500/pr.) two-way floorstander driven by the new Luxman550AX II Class A solid-state amp ($5500) and an AbbingdonDP777E DAC. The emcee played Reference Recordings’ Big Band Basie, a live album, and I could clearly hear everything going on, including the hall itself. The entire system cost under $15k.

I got to hear the smaller Sonner Audio Legato Unum speakers ($4,750/pair) at the Capital Audiofest so I was pleased they were playing the larger Legato Semis floorstanders ($6,500/pair) in NY. A lovely Luxman L-550AXII (S5,500) took care of power while the Abbingdon Music Research DP-777SE DAC ($5,000) delivered the tunes. This system had a nice, big, spatial ease coupled with delicacy and nuance. Nice.
