BRAND: Sonus Faber
SERIES: AMATI TRADITION
THE COLLECTION Sonus faber wishes to evoke Italian design and creativity at their best by restyling the Homage collection, the company’s most iconic line which has been completely revamped in keeping with its rich past and precious legacy. Welcome Homage Tradition! The collection features four elements: Amati, Guarneri, Vox and the newcomer Serafino, a 3,5 ways floor-standing speaker, whose name is taken from the history of Italian violin-making (Santo Serafino – 1699 /1758 – Venetian master trained at Nicolò Amati workshop). The made-in-Italy appeal and the great Sonus faber tradition find their expression in a classic and slightly retro approach, where the classical lute shape is still central and maintains the roots with the history but components, finishes and design has been completely renewed.
The lute shape of the cabinets of the collection is the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, blending the lines of previous models of the Tradition collection with those inherited from Lilium and giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back. This evolution allows the cabinet to better control internal resonances. The distinctive feature of the design of the new Homage Tradition collection – and a recall of the original Homage collection – is the new layout of the top whose main accent is, once again, wood with the same finish of the sides. The Guarneri Tradition stand plays a key role in the aesthetic and electro-acoustic design. It’s made in carbon fiber monocoque and sums the know-how reached with the Sonus faberPagani Automobili partnership and Ex3ma production. The curved outline of the stand, though much lighter and acoustically transparent than its predecessor, ensures maximum structural strength.
3.5 way, full para-aperiodic vented box “Stealth Ultraflex” system and “Zero Vibration Transmission” technology, decoupled from the floor, staggered low frequency floor standing loudspeaker system.
