BRAND: Sonus Faber
SERIES: SERAFINO TRADITION
The patents and technological solutions ofLilium ,Il Cremoneseand of theOlympicaCollection find further evolution inside Homage Tradition. The “Stealth Ultraflex” is the evolution of the “Stealth Reflex” system; its external part at the back panel, is in extruded Aluminum and controls the flow of air through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing any turbulence and hence distortion. The back too is part of the Exosqueleton system complete with Dampshelves on top and bottom of the speakers. Guarneri and Serafino feature the so-called Silent Spikes, coaxial metal/elastomer/metal spikes which reinterpret the classic patented “Z.V.T.” (Zero Vibration Transmission) system and derive from Il Cremonese . Amati keeps the classic optimized suspension system. The transducers of the Homage Tradition collection are derived directly from Il Cremonese and have been further developed to create an exclusive and unique design.
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.
