Sonus Faber Homage TRADITION

The TRADITION of Sonus Faber

Homage collection has its root in the Sonus Faber DNA of highest craftsmanship and excellence in sound performances.

Since its very beginning during the Nineties with the first Guarneri and Amati Homage, this collection has ever been the most iconic representation of Sonus Faber values.

Homage Tradition collection is a new tribute to the mastery of Italian violin-making; the now classic lute shape, the hallmark of Sonus faber production, has been revisited and taken to new heights by embodying both the classic lines of the Homage collection and those of the Lilium cabinet, thus giving new volumes to the speakers of this collection.

THE NEW Sonus Faber Homage TRADITION COLLECTION

Sonus faber wishes to evoke Italian design and creativity at their best by restyling the Homage collection, the companys most iconic line.

It has been completely revamped in keeping with its rich past and precious legacy. Welcome Homage Tradition!

The collection features four models: Amati, Guarneri, Vox and the newcomer Serafino, a 3.5 way floor-standing speaker whose name is taken from Santo Serafino (1699 – 1758), another of Italy’s master violin makers who trained at Nicolò Amati’s workshop.

Amati

Serafino

Guarneri

The made-in-Italy appeal and the great Sonus faber tradition find their expression in a classic and slightly retro approach where the classical lute shape is still central and maintains the roots with the history but components, finishes and design have been completely renewed.

THE PROJECT

Many patents and technological solutions of Lilium, Il Cremonese and the Olympica Collection find further evolution inside Homage Tradition.

The Stealth Ultraflex is the evolution of the Stealth Reflex system; its external part at the back panel is in extruded Aluminum and controls the flow of air through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing any turbulence and hence distortion.

The back too is part of the Exoskeleton system complete with Dampshelves on top and bottom of the speakers. Guarneri and Serafino feature the so-called Silent Spikes, coaxial metal/elastomer/metal spikes which reinterpret the classic patented Z.V.T.(Zero Vibration Transmission) system and derive from Il Cremonese.

Amati keeps the classic optimised suspension system.

The transducers of the Homage Tradition collection are derived directly from Il Cremonese and have been further developed to create an exclusive and unique design.

THE DESIGN

The lute shape of the cabinets is the fruit of careful research and major restyling.

The curves of the sides change and double, blending the lines of previous models of the Tradition collection with those inherited from Lilium and giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back.

This evolution allows the cabinet to better control internal resonances.

The distinctive feature of the design of the new Homage Tradition collection and a recall of the original Homage collection is the new layout of the top whose main accent is once again wood in the same finish as the sides.

The Guarneri Tradition stand plays a key role in the aesthetic and electro-acoustic design.

Its made in carbon fiber monocoque and sums the know-how reached with the Sonus faber-Pagani Automobili partnership and Ex3ma production.

The curved outline of the stand, though much lighter and acoustically transparent than its predecessor, ensures maximum structural strength.

FINISHES

Homage Tradition collection is available in two finishes

  • RED: Traditional walnut wood essence with black inlays combined with brushed black Aluminum and black leather (like flagships Aida, Lilium and Il Cremonese)
  • WENGÈ: Wengè wood essence used for the first time by Sonus faber with maple inlays (reference to the walnut finish of Olympica collection) with brushed Aluminum in Titanium finish and brown leather
