What Hi-Fi? Russian Edition reviewed Legato in Temptation column

Simplicity and closeness to nature are things we associate with Finland. It is necessary to add high quality. Penaudio Legato Signature Loudspeakers is a perfect example of a harmonious combination of these features with the advantages of excellent detail, clarity, articulation of lead vocals, eurhythmy, microdynamics, elegant dimensions and great finish. 

Excellent balance and vitality

The sound of the Penaudio wins over the audience from the first minutes of listening. It is transparent, very detailed, airy and dynamic. 

Naturally at first we wanted to check the quality of transmission of bass diapason. We used 'The Beekeeper' CD with songs of Tory Amos, we went to 'Sweet the Sting' with its quite complex and baroque combination of a deep pulsing rhythm and ironic vocals. Not every loudspeaker manages to find the right balance between these two components but in this case everything works optimally. The singer's voice is full of characteristic intonations - it is very meaningful, perfectly articulated and her personality is clearly focus-framed by the instrumentation. Not monotonic, a somewhat viscous bass rhythm sets up a necessary intonation to the composition - not obstructing but supporting the rest of the frequency-response diapasons.
