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.
Despite its slim dimensions, Sonetto V has the commanding presence of a much larger speaker, thanks to advanced technologies and design solutions. Sonetto III completes the floorstanding loudspeakers range of the collection.
The Sonus Faber Sonetto collections floor standing and bookshelf model inherit from the Olympics 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 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.
Consistent with the most prestigious Sonus faber models, aluminum has been chosen for the column feet, extruded or milled from solid billets, to provide an extreme rigidity.
The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD™ (Damped Apex Dome™) technology and a midrange 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 feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus faber laboratories.
For an optimal lowest frequencies reproduction, a special aluminum alloy diaphragm has been designed. It allows an ultra-fast, tight and yet deep bass performance.
