Sonus Faber Serafino Traditional Floorstanding Speaker (Pair)
- E-piphany Product Feed
The Homage collection has been enriched with a new element that complements the family; Serafino, a floor speaker with a huge appeal and a surprising power to be explored. EXPERIENCE, A CLASSIC AND RETRO APPROACH The new Homage Tradition collection inherits the precious teachings of the masters of Italian violin-making and the experience gained in 20 years of design and development of the Homage line, with a classic and slightly retro approach. THE AESTHETIC OF THE ``LA DOLCE VITA`` 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 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 of the ``La Dolce Vita`` with their iconic wooden hulls. FEATURES Once again, the name is taken from the history of Italian violin-making: Santo Serafino was a famous venetian master of the first half of the 18th century, specialized in making sturdy yet incredibly delicate violins. THE CABINET The violin shape of the speaker cabinet is the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back and making possible a better control of the internal resonances. The brushed aluminium enhances the line and the “Sf” logo in silk-screened glass placed right at the center of the surface. THE VOICE OF SONUS FABER Mid and High frequencies that make the "Voice of Sonus faber" are here determined by a 28mm silk dome tweeter with ”Arrow Point” DADTM (Damped Apex Dome), implemented with a natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, and a midrange M15 XTR-04 with cellulose pulp cone and Neodymium motor system. This iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange maintain the effortless, warm and involving timber that has become our trademark. STEALTH ULTRAFLEX™ Visible element is the back panel in extruded aluminium, the external part of the Stealth Ultraflex™ system characterized by a laminar tuning. The outline of this part acts as a vent favouring 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. SILENT SPIKES The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the so-called "Silent Spikes", namely the coaxial metal/elastomer/metal spikes, which are an embodiment of the classic patented Zero Vibration Transmission™. This system substantially reduces transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also, acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.
