Montreal heat wave as Sonneteer comes to town

Sonneteer will be showing at the Son & Image show in Montreal March 25th to 28th. BA strikes allowing Sonneteer’s Haider Bahrani will be on hand to talk about the Sonneteer Morpheus system which now comprises of the Music Centre and the Server which was previewed at the CES show in Las Vegas in January.

The production model will have its full début at the Canadian show at which Sonneteer will be hosted by their Canadian representatives Liberty Trading and their glorious leader, Nabil Akhrass.

For the second time this month Sonneteer will be on show with Penaudio loudspeakers. Penaudio will be introducing their Series 2 Ambient lineto Canada as well as the New Sara  which, in the words of Sami Penttila, is a ‘baby Serenade’. Oh and we love the Serenade. We have already heard great things about this speaker from Riverside Audio in the Netherlands. More on the Netherlands show soon.

The Sonneteer Morpheus Server is shipping now and is available in a range of colours. The word from the Sonneteer stables is that Ruby Red is slowly becoming a favourite as the orders pile up and also that at least one has been ordered in the colours of a local London football team!  As you can see from the sneak peek photo we got our hands on, the Server logo and markings are hand engraved onto the aluminium before bright colour anodised.

The Sonneteer Classics will also be on show with the Sedley USB  headlining on the second main performance stage at this festival of sound.

We promise you more as the show progresses

Shows and buses

We wait for shows all year and suddenly they are happening everywhere. Sonneteer have as good as been on a world tour in the last couple of weeks and it looks to be going on through the spring.

The Audio Festa in Nagoya, Japan hosted Sonneteer represented by Allegro and their head man Kyoji Arai. He had the Sonneteer Morpheus Music Centre and Server on show as well as the Sedley phono stage both of which have had recent award success in the land of the rising Sun.

Sonneteer have also recently been exposed or shown off, should we say, at Axpona in Jacksonville Florida. May Audio Marketing of New York state with Nizar Akhrass at its helm have been faithfully preaching the virtues of hi-fi utopia to the masses for more than 30 years now. The Sonneteer gospel has been a strong component of their sermons for many a year now. They too see the Sonneteer Morpheus Music centre and Server as the guiding light on the path to aural paradise for all music lovers.
