BRAND: Sonus Faber
SERIES: SONETTO I
“Sonetto is what I like to call a “democratic” range of loudspeaker systems because it is about aiming to the highest quality in music reproduction within a cost conscious package.” Paolo Tezzon, Sonus faber R&D manager
The new Sonus faber Sonetto line draws upon many iconic elements from speakers further up the Sonus faber range. First, it inherits from the Olympica Collection a top in natural leather, handsewn and embellished by the branded Sonus faber logo. Next, for the first time in this price range, the new collection features the so-called “Voice of Sonus faber”, the iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange that features the DAD (Damped Apex Dome TM) tweeter technology and a midrange complete with our proprietary natural fiber recipe cone, previously only available on Olympica, Homage and Reference collections.
Sonetto is a true Sonus faber collection that features all of the iconic elements of the brand: natural sound, natural materials, the Lute shape, the pristine finishes typical of fine Italian craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology and manufacturing done completely in our factory in Vicenza. A clean industrial design language has been used focusing on the elegant proportions of the wood cabinets. The front baffle is an integral part of the cabinet creating a seamless structure with the curved sides. This form is accented by gun-metal finished aluminum aesthetic frames and a soft leather top. Solid aluminum hardware is used throughout the design to provide solidity and maintain consistency with the rest of the product portfolio. Down-firing reflex ports allow for forgiving room placement and consistent bass output throughout the listening environment.
“We are sure that Sonetto will be considered a benchmark in its category for its elegance, both in aesthetics and sound.” Livio Cucuzza, Sonus faber chief design officer
