Three cheers for the return of Chario
There are few more famous names in HiFi than Chario. An Italian speaker manufacturer supremo, and yet, your probably thinking - “the name rings a bit of a bell, but I’m not sure”.
The main reason for this is because they haven’t been available in the UK for many a year because of a major upset with the then importer for the UK who decided… shall we just say, to not be forthcoming with their orders and things. This left a rather bitter pill for them to swallow, and they vowed to leave the UK. So, successful though they have been across the World, in the UK they have been conspicuous only by their absence.
But, just because the British public has been without what was a gorgeous range of speakers, hasn’t stopped the top chaps at Chario from seeking to improve them even further. So what was a great speaker before, is now even better still.
They have decided however, that time has passed, and so they have asked a very select range of dealers to represent them back in the UK. Fortunately for us, we were picked to be amongst the few.
Four or five months ago we invested in five pairs of differing models, as well as a couple of centre channels, so that people could get a feel for them. All we can say is, WOW.
They look absolutely gorgeous with their hand finished wood finishes, and they sound incredible. Even the relatively diminutive floor standing speakers have great depth and authority. They seem to match very well with valves as well as solid state, leaving an open door of choice with which they can be partnered. The range is vast, with something for almost everyone. Stand mount speakers start at just £599.00 a pair, and floor standers go all the way to the simply incredible Serendipity model at £26,999.00
They have a sensible layout of ranges, starting at the Piccolo Star, then the Syntar and Syntar R, followed by the best selling Constellation series and then topped off with the range heading Academy S Series.
In between these are obviously a whole range of wonderful choices, and they also produce some very nice sounding and extremely cute looking satellite speakers for surround use with a matching subwoofer.
We’ve already sold several sets, and no one who has heard them hasn’t instantly fallen for their great looks and even better sound quality.
They’re in, they’re set up, and they’re waiting for you to listen to, love, and take home. See you soon.
