Bookshelf Speaker with THX Dominus Perlisten S4b Review
Although still being the cheapest bookshelf speakers from the Statement series, the Perlisten S4b will cost you just slightly less than 10.000 euros in a custom finish. Among other things, this price is justified by the elaborate workmanship, a patented tweeter system as well as a THX Dominus certificate. But do the speakers also sound accordingly? Our MODERNHIFI test reveals it.
What ends up in the distribution of Hamburg-based company Audio Reference is usually well selected and thought out. However, this also goes along with quite a more heftier price tag. The respective premium brands include big names such as Dan D’Agostino, Velodyne and Wilson Audio. New to this exclusive range is Perlisten Audio. A newcomer in Germany with headquarters in Wisconsin (USA), own manufacturing facilities in China and to some extent also in Scandinavia. Here in Germany, the brand initially introduces its exclusive portfolio with the Statement series, which ranges up to 20.000 euros in price, depending on the size and design of the speakers. We tested their most “affordable” model, the Perlisten S4b, and explain the ideas with which the newcomer wants to position itself in the demanding high-end sector.
