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.

An acoustic instrument living in its environment becomes part of it, carrying out the functions of both a music source as well as being a beautiful piece of furniture. The design choices, the finishes of the new materials, the quality of the craftsmanship and the extreme attention paid to every detail are,just like the sound reproduced, the enhancing of this concept, directly expressed by Guarneri Tradition.At its fourth revamp, improved in structure and technology, Guarneri keep its role of the most iconic Sonus faber bookshelf loudspeaker, refined and powerful at the same time.

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 aluminum 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 so-called Silent Spikes inherited from Il Cremonese, namely the coaxial metal/elastomer/metal spikes, which are an embodiment of the classic patented “Z.V.T.” (Zero Vibration Transmission) system with much smaller dimensions.This system substantially reduces transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.

Sonus faber

Sonus faber speakers are based on three principles of design which are: driver development, crossover theory and cabinet design. The result of focusing on these principles is Italian artisan workmanship that combines cutting edge technology with modern design. At the heart of every Sonus faber speaker are the drivers which are exquisitely designed and developed, this means that the crossovers designs can be simplified as they are not trying to overcome driver related problems. Many  Sonus faber speakers are beautifully housed within solid wood cabinets meaning they really do look as good as they sound.

If you’re looking for hand-built speakers that combine the best of modern technology with traditional handcrafted cabinetry then Sonus faber certainly delivers. They produce some of the most sought after and desirable speakers in the world in true Italian style.
