Sonus Faber Sonetto I

ITALIAN TRADITIONAL CULTURE

Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time we entrusted the history of our Literature for representing the new Sonetto Collection.
The Sonetto (Sonnet) is the most ancient Italian Poetic structure. Originally it meant ``Sound, Melody``and was traditionally used to accompany music performances. The first step in the Sonus faber world brings the name of the foundations of Literature history in Italy and in the rest of the world.

 

A COMPACT SPEAKER, TRUE TO THE BRAND’S HISTORY

Thanks to the most advanced design solutions and particularly to the new reflex port implemented on the speaker base in a unique way, Sonetto I is an outstanding performer and compact bookshelf, ideal for middle sized listening rooms, designed for use on a bookshelf or stand.

FEATURES

Designed to be a bookshelf speaker in the service of Music, able to involve the listener with discretion and elegance.

LEATHER TOP


The Sonus faber Sonetto collection's floorstanding and bookshelf models inherit from the Olympica line the leather top, hand-sewn, soft to the touch and embellished by the hot branded Sonus faber logo.

LUTE SHAPE

The lute shape that characterizes most of the Sonus faber models, offers a solution that ensures no internal parallel surfaces and a perfect control over internal resonances.

THE VOICE OF SONUS FABER

The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD™ (Damped Apex Dome™) technology and a midwoofer with a special natural fiber and a paper blend air dried diaphragm, defines our iconic "Voice of Sonus faber". This configuration that characterized the entire Sonus faber catalogue, from the Reference to the Olympica collection, is available for the first time in this price range.

MIDWOOFER

These speakers have been designed from scratch specifically for this collection and they all feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus faber laboratories.

REFLEX PORT

The Sonetto collection's reflex ports are all sited on the base of the speakers, except for the center channels, to keep the design as clean as possible and at the same time make in-room placement very forgiving.

"The diminutive size of the Sonetto 1s may suggest an equally diminutive sound, but nothing could be further from the truth. As it turns out, they muster a generosity of both tone and image that is quite at odds with the humble physical presence of these compact Italians. While they sound both detailed and accessible, aided by the kind of transparency that completely disguises their point source role, it is the room-filling talent of these standmount speakers that surprises and delights most."
