Sonus faber Amati Tradition

Homage collection has its root in the Sonus faber DNA of highest craftsmanship tradition 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.

AMATI TRADITION

As Andrea Amati is considered the forefather of the violin making tradition of Cremona, since he gave the rules for techniques of construction, shapes and proportions of string instruments as we know them nowadays, Amati Tradition represents the synthesis of original concepts and architectural ideas.

Flagship of Homage Tradition collection, Amati is the new reference floor standing loudspeaker in the Sonus faber catalogue, right after Il Cremonese, Lilium and Aida, from which inherits many technical solutions and patents

THE CABINET

The violin shape of the speaker cabinets is also the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, blending the lines of previous Homage models 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 top has as main accent, once again, the wood with the same finish of the sides. The brushed aluminium enhances the line and the “Sf” logo in silk-screened glass placed right at the center of the surface.

FINISHES

The world of ancient shipyards and the tradition of Italy’s shipwrights are the essence of the inspiration of the design of the Tradition collection. The new Wengè finish with maple inlays (a reference to the walnut finish of Olympica models) is the true aesthetic novelty of the collection and immediately links it with the elegant and timeless design of the most famous

Italian motor-boats with their iconic wooden hulls. The aluminum is brushed with Titanium finish and the leather on the front features the new coffee color. The essence of the walnut wood is preserved in the traditional “Red” finish with brushed black aluminum and the leather of the black front in line with the finish of the flagship models Aida, Lilium and Il Cremonese.

STEALTH ULTRAFLEX

Visible and typical element of the novelties of the new collection is the back panel in extruded aluminum, the external part of the Stealth Ultraflex system characterized by a laminar tuning derived directly from the solution adopted in the Olympica collection.The outline of this part acts as a vent favoring 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 Exosqueleton system complete with Dampshelves on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet.

ZERO VIBRATION TRASMISSION

The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the patented Z.V.T. system (Zero Vibration Transmission), optimized suspension system with alternating surfaces metal/elastomer/metal overlapped inside the bracket-spike group. This system substantially reduces transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.
