The Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection has been available for some time now as an extremely fine loudspeaker series from Italy, which offers all the virtues of the renowned manufacturer at an attractive price. Now the speakers of this product series are available in a new design variation, namely in the Wenge version.
For a good two years now, the long-established Italian company Sonus Faber SPA has been offering the so-called Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection, a product line of loudspeaker systems for a wide variety of applications. The spectrum ranges from speakers for classic stereo systems to systems for home cinema.
The company from Arcugnano in Veneto can look back on a history of almost 40 years. Despite constant development in technology and production, one thing has always been maintained: the connection to timeless elegance, the tradition of Italian culture and Italian craftsmanship. The Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection is a line of products entirely handcrafted in Italy, and the aim of the presentation of the Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection was to demonstrate this once again.
The aim of the designers was to create a product line based on the latest technological innovations that would delight the listener with pure, natural sound and at the same time be a true adornment for any listening room. The optimal combination of all senses…
A clear design language was chosen, which is still committed to tradition, and which includes modern stylistic elements as well as features that have long been typical for Sonus Faber, such as the lute shape. The Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection models are all handcrafted directly in the company’s own factory in Vicenza, allowing the company to benefit fully from the skills of proven masters of their trade and guaranteeing, for example, flawless surfaces for the fine cases.
From a technical point of view, it should be said that all the drivers in the Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection are in-house developments that are used in conjunction with optimised crossovers.
The Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection comprises a total of eight models, whereby the product designation is simply based on an internal nomenclature. The Sonus Faber Sonetto VIII is an outstanding floor-standing speaker system, which of course is the flagship of the Sonus Faber Sonetto range. Directly below it is the Sonus Faber Sonetto V, also a floor-standing speaker system, with the Sonus Faber Sonetto III even offering another to choose from. With the Sonus Faber Sonetto II and Sonus Faber Sonetto I, two bookshelf speaker systems are available, and with the Sonus Faber Sonetto Wall, the Italians – nomen es omen – even offer a wall speaker, ideal for home cinema. For home cinema, of course, a centre speaker is also necessary, but two of them are available: the Sonus Faber Sonetto Center I and the much more powerful Sonus Faber Sonetto Center II.
Up to now, all products in the Sonus Faber Sonetto Collection have been available in three different designs: Black High Gloss, i.e. black piano lacquer, White Matte, and the real wood veneer Wood Walnut. Now another design variation is being added, a version that has been considered a true trend colour for quite some time, the real wood veneer Wenge.
The prices for the new models remain unchanged, so you really do have a free choice of which of the now four design variations you choose.
The Sonus Faber Sonetto VIII is available for € 5,990, the Sonus Faber Sonetto V is available for € 4,4990 and the Sonus Faber Sonetto III is available for € 3,490. The Sonus Faber Sonetto II is priced at € 1.990,- and the Sonus Faber Sonetto I at € 1.490,-. The solutions specifically for home cinema are available in the form of the Sonus Faber Sonetto Center II at a price of € 1,990 and the Sonus Faber Sonetto Center I at € 990. In this case, the prices are per unit, whereas those previously quoted are to be understood as a pair price. If you are interested in the Sonus Faber Sonetto Wall, you will have to allow for € 990,- for this, which in turn is the price per pair.
Getting to the point
The aim of the Sonus Faber developers was to create a product line based on the latest technological innovations that would delight the listener with pure, natural sound and at the same time be a true ornament for any listening room. This product line is now available in another design variant, so that there is a second version in a noble real wood veneer in addition to high-gloss black, matt white and walnut with wenge.
