Ital­ian sound man­u­fac­turer Sonus Faber is re­leas­ing its Sonetto Col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing eight mod­els in­clud­ing floor stand­ing loud­speak­ers and cen­tre chan­nel speak­ers.

The col­lec­tion was un­veiled at the High End Hi-Fi show in Mu­nich.

The col­lec­tion fea­tures, Sonetto VIII, Sonetto V and Sonetto III, the floor-stand­ing loud­speak­ers, Sonetto II and Sonetto I book­shelf loud­speak­ers, Sonetto Cen­ter II and Sonetto Cen­ter I, cen­tre chan­nel speaker op­tions, and the ver­sa­tile Sonetto Wall, an on-wall speaker which can be used as a main stereo, multi-chan­nel sur­round or LCR so­lu­tion.

For this project, Sonus says its R&D team de­vel­oped new tech­nolo­gies for en­clo­sure tun­ing, cre­ated new trans­duc­ers, in­te­grated new ma­te­ri­als and re­fined the pro­duc­tion chain.

Paolo Tez­zon, Sonus faber R&D man­ager says, “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 cost­con­scious pack­age.”

The new col­lec­tion fea­tures the ‘Voice of Sonus faber’, the iconic con­fig­u­ra­tion of tweeter and mid-range with the DAD (Damped Apex Dome TM) tweeter tech­nol­ogy and a mid-range com­plete with its pro­pri­etary nat­u­ral fi­bre recipe cone, pre­vi­ously only avail­able on Olympica, Homage and Ref­er­ence col­lec­tions.

Its elec­troa­cous­tic so­lu­tions in­clude, Paracross Topol­o­gyTM on each x-over de­sign for the best con­trast and mu­si­cal de­tail and def­i­ni­tion; Mid-ranges and mid-woofers pur­pose-built us­ing a spe­cial blend of nat­u­ral fi­bre and air-dried cel­lu­lose; the woofers have been de­signed from scratch, fea­tur­ing the Sonus faber die cast bas­ket with a spe­cial alu­minium al­loy di­aphragm al­low­ing ul­tra­fast, tight and yet deep bass per­for­mance.

They will be avail­able from Au­gust with Aus­tralian pric­ing to come.
