Trenner & Friedl SUN w teście Stereophile!
Roughly half the size of a breadbox—remember those?—the Trenner & Friedl Sun ($3450/pair) is arguably the smallest stand-mounted loudspeaker presently available for serious home listening: only 8.5" high by 6.25" wide by 5.5" deep and weighing just 7.5 lbs. The Sun is the entry-level model from this Austrian loudspeaker manufacturer, and its ported, solid-birch cabinet is designed and built to golden-ratio proportions (footnote 1) It has a single, coaxial driver from SEAS and a crossover made by Mundorf.
The Sun boasts a frequency response of 55Hz–25kHz, +0/–3dB; friends of
mine have heard the speaker plumb remarkable depths when paired with the
right amplifier. And though they're barely bigger than a pair of Audeze
LCD-4 planar-magnetic headphones, the Suns do play louder!
With their unusually small dimensions and not-small price, you're
probably wondering how two such speakers can fill a room—heck, a
bookcase—with real-world frequency range, organic tone, credible bass
extension, and lifelike dynamics. I wondered that too, the moment my
eyes spotted the Suns' lovely birch cabinets in Greenwich Village hi-fi
emporium In Living Stereo.
