The two-way design has been a strong piece of brand identity for Sonus faber products. In general, hi-fi enthusiasts deem the two-way loudspeaker system as one of the purest systems achievable. Maxima Amator represents the merging of two speakers to achieve a unique emotion with the maximum representation of the "Voice of Sonus faber” – the goal to achieve natural sound.
The solid wood is a living material that continuously changes over time. Due to this, the Maxima Amator’s large cabinet had to be meticulously studied and fine-tuned to avoid the risk of deformation or breakage as the wood ages.
Sonus faber was able to overcome this limit thanks to modern wood drying methods, use of internal structural ribs fixed with flexible glues, and new CNC methods that allow us to maintain a tighter tolerance compared to that of the past.
After the cabinet’s studies and the drivers’ selection, we focused on defining the perfect tonal balance of the project.
The final step of the long design process of Maxima Amator was, as always, the “tuning by ear”. Beside the technique, the R&D team relied on the listening experience and the emotions of Music, because Sonus faber is made of this: passion for knowledge, appreciation of beauty and commitment to Italian tradition and craftsmanship.

I love everything about this speaker–the heartbreakingly beautiful finishes and materials, the small footprint, the huge sound, and all the warmth and hope of my favorite music preserved in a way that makes me remember how this music sounded on the Amators, and nothing else. more...
With intimately recorded small-ensemble music, the Sonus faber Maxima Amators are second to none in their capacity to provide an intensely involving listening experience. The loudspeakers keep the recording and playback processes essentially invisible. more...
