Founded in 1983 by Franco Serblin, the company has earned a reputation for combining exquisite craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail, and outstanding sound quality in its products. Sonus faber speakers are renowned for their musicality, natural sound reproduction, and elegant design.
handcrafted in the company's facilities in Arcugnano, a small town near Vicenza in Northern Italy. Skilled artisans carefully assemble each speaker using high-quality materials, including solid wood cabinets, leather accents, and advanced acoustic components. This meticulous attention to detail extends to every aspect of the manufacturing process, resulting in products that are both sonically and aesthetically exceptional.
One of the distinguishing features of Sonus faber speakers is their use of the "lute" shape cabinet design. Inspired by the shape of musical instruments such as violins and lutes, this unique design minimises unwanted resonances and diffractions, leading to a more accurate and lifelike sound reproduction. The use of solid wood cabinets helps to enhance the warmth and richness of the sound output.
