YG's New Sonja 1.3 Speakers
As I was about to ask for a CD to be played on the 4-box dCS Scarlatti player, audio critic Paul Bolin beat me to it and played a recording of electric Renaissance music from, of all people, erstwhile Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. The sound was still stunning. Perhaps it was the Sonjas, which were stepping out of the way of even unfamiliar music like this, to let the musicians maximally communicate.
Like the earlier YG flagship speaker, the Anat, the 506 lb Sonja is a modular system, comprising the Sonja 1.1 two-way compact speaker, the Sonja 1.2, which adds a matching passive woofer section to the Sonja 1.1, and the Sonja 1.3, which adds dual matching bass modules to the 1.2.
A pair of Sonja 1.3s will be taking up residency in my listening room in February. Based on what I heard at CES, I can't wait!
