Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. With Sonetto, the history of Italian literature is used as inspiration for the new collection. The word ‘sonetto’ or ‘sonnet’ in English, originally meant ‘sound’ or ‘melody,’ and was traditionally used to accompany musical performances. Sonus faber’s new Sonetto collection seeks to marry these traditional forms of sound and poetry within the framework of their acclaimed speaker design.
The entire collection is true Sonus faber – featuring all the iconic elements of the brand: natural sound, natural materials, the Lute shape, the artisan finishes typical of Italian craftsmanship, and manufacturing done completely in the Sonus faber factory in Vicenza.
Thanks to the most advanced design solutions, and particularly to the new reflex port uniquely implemented on the speaker base, Sonetto I is an outstanding performer and compact bookshelf. Ideal for mid-sized listening rooms, Sonetto I is designed for use on a bookshelf or stand.
The Sonus faber Sonetto collection's floorstanding and bookshelf models inherit from the Olympica line the leather top, hand-sewn, soft to the touch and embellished by the hot branded Sonus faber logo.
The lute shape that characterizes most of the Sonus faber models, offers a solution that ensures no internal parallel surfaces and a perfect control over internal resonances.
The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD™ (Damped Apex Dome™) technology and a midwoofer with a special natural fiber and a paper blend air dried diaphragm, defines our iconic "Voice of Sonus faber". This configuration that characterized the entire Sonus faber catalogue, from the Reference to the Olympica collection, is available for the first time in this price range.
These speakers have been designed from scratch specifically for this collection and they all feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus faber laboratories.
The Sonetto collection's reflex ports are all sited on the base of the speakers, except for the center channels, to keep the design as clean as possible and at the same time make in-room placement very forgiving.
