Like “Aida”, the greatest expression of Verdi’s talent, which represents a wonderful blend of the tradition of Italian melodrama and innovation through abandoning conventions, so too is the new Aida project a blend of tradition and innovation. A synthesis that expresses beauty. The thirty year tradition of Sonus faber is condensed in this new and extraordinary project.
Lilium has been designed to shape those great contrasts expressed by music. It is the will of synthesis of two opposite elements: two separate identities that, although working independently one from each other, cooperate inside the same shape. The creation of a shape that holds two distinct elements has been a big challenge from a technical point of view and from a design one as well. Everything was basically about the need find a new way to put together the large volume requiredto reproduce the very low frequencies, with the structure dedicated to the reproduction of the main portion of the audible spectrum.
New element of the iconic Homage Collection, Il Cremonese derives from Lilium. Thru to the highest brand’s tradition and to the history of Italian violin making, with this project Sonus faber pays a tribute to the great master Antonio Stradivari a luthier and artist who revolutionized traditional violin craftsmanship, and continued the work of Andrea Amati to create new concepts of form and finishing that are still appreciated and cherished today the world over.
As Andrea Amati is considered the forefather of the violin making tradition of Cremona, since he gave the rules for techniques of construction, shapes and proportions of string instruments as we know them nowadays, Amati Tradition represents the synthesis of original conceptsand architectural ideas
The Homage collection has been enriched with a new element that complements the family; Serafino, a floor speaker with a huge appeal and a surprising power to be explored.Once again, the name is taken from the history of Italianviolin-making: Santo Serafino was a famous yet mysterious master who trained at the workshop of Nicolò Amati who worked in Venice in the first half of the 18th century and was specialized in making sturdy yet incredibly delicate violins.
The design choices, the finishes of the new materials, the quality of the craftsmanship and the extreme attention paid to every detail are,just like the sound reproduced, the enhancing of this concept, directly expressed by Guarneri Tradition.At its fourth revamp, improved in structure and technology, Guarneri keep its role of the most iconic Sonus faber bookshelf loudspeaker, refined and powerful at the same time.
The launch of the new family will occur in two phases, the first three models Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floor-standing) will be presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 – 12 May and the remaining part will see the spotlights at the end of the summer. With this new projectSonus faber has been able, with great balance, to unite our quintessential style with the introduction of significant elements of technological innovation, therefore combining modernity with the classic stylistic canons of Sonus faber.
Venere S ideally bridges between the Venere and Olympica product families thanks to carefully thought out designs and precise solutions that create a surprising accurate and detailed sound stage. The design is faithful to that of the six current models of the Venere collection, thus ensuring seamless integration into multi-channel systems.
The three speakers that make up the Sonus faber Chameleon collection offer optimal solutions for both stereo music lovers as well as for those who want to create a multichannel system for a variety of listening experiences.A floor-standing model, a bookshelf speaker, and a center channel provide a range of combinations that are well-suited to any environment, from the largest living room to the smallest and most intimate listening room.
Olympic Theatre: it is design, planning, harmony, proportions, acoustics, sensitivity, search for beauty, wonder, expert processing of materials, emotions. One of the greatest works of the Master and chief architect Andrea Palladio created before his death as a perennial gift to Vicenza, enriching it further with another precious gem and a universal example of beauty and ingenuity.
We have designed a speaker that goes beyond modernity, a stage but not an endpoint along our journey toward new and ambitious projects for the future.Completion and evolution of the collection, the "S" inherits Venere's design and has an electro-acoustic legacy strongly connected with the finest traditions of our brand. Venere S is made in Italy, at the Sonus faber headquarters in Arcugnano where it is assembled entirely by hand.
With the Chameleon speakers collection, Sonus faber aims to bring to a wider, contemporary audience all the iconic element that made history of the Vicenza based company: innovative style and design, quality of sound and craftsmanship approach to construction, absolutely made in Italy and “hand made”. Chameleon embodies all of the iconic design elements of Sonus faber offering a level of customization previously unattainable – the entire cabinet is covered in leather, drivers flange is embellished with aluminium trims and side walls have a structure that houses the exchangeable side panels. In this way, choosing the finis is no longer a permanent decision.
