The Lumina V is the flagship in the collection, a slender speaker, with high power handling and fast transient response, capable of producing a natural, generous and emotional sound for an immersive listening experience.
The Lumina range from Sonus faber embodies luxury, minimalist design and natural sound, as well as components and technologies inherited from higher end models. Surfaces of the cabinet are wrapped in iconic black leather, while the chrome rings around the drivers highlight shapes and proportions and give brightness to the front baffle, defining the voice of Sonus faber.
Lumina V features two brand new 6.5’’ woofers whose diaphragm is based on the sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp and other natural fibers are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between, guaranteeing a natural sound reproduction.
The cabinet of the collection is perfectly squared- the Sonus faber design department executed this minimalistic design in order to emphasise the quality of materials used. A careful study of proportions was carried out to guarantee accurate volumes for sound performances and compact dimension for set-up.
Multichannel systems and multimedia solutions are perfect for Lumina, offering excellent room coverage for audiences to enjoy a captivating and authentic experience from every seat in the room. Thanks to updated technology, Lumina speakers are incredibly adaptable and sound excellent wherever they are placed—even close to a back wall or on a bookshelf. The beauty of the new Lumina collection is that they can be placed virtually anywhere and will still deliver a breathtaking performance.
The Lumina collection features three models: Lumina I, an extremely compact bookshelf speaker, that looks great as an individual stereo pair or as surround speaker in a cinema set up; Lumina III is an elegant floor-standing model that ensures powerful, distortion-free sound and high speech intelligibility for games and movies; Lumina Center I is a center channel speaker option aligned in appearance and acoustics that fit perfectly with its siblings in the full collection. This essential combination of models is a perfectly balanced solution for traditional stereo system enthusiasts as much as for those looking to experience a multichannel home theatre system.

Based on sonic performance alone, though, the Lumina V earns its asking price any day of the week. When you throw in niceties like the leather cabinet covering, the attractive wood-finished or gloss-black baffle, the magnetically affixed grille, and the fact that the whole kit and caboodle is handmade in Italy, for goodness’ sake, the Lumina V seems like a ridiculously good value. more...
Elegant looks with very good overall performance makes the LUMINA V the best performance-for-dollar speaker I’ve yet heard from Sonus faber. Even more amazing is that they’re building them in Italy for this price. more...
