Founded in 1983 by Franco Serblin, a man of remarkable taste, who remains the chief designer and the creative force behind the company, Sonus faber, derived from Latin, means "handcrafted sound," which aptly describes the company’s products which are based on three cornerstones of speaker design: driver development, crossover functionality, and cabinet design. In the same way that the heart and soul of a Ferrari is the engine, so too are the exquisitely engineered drivers the heart and soul of a Sonus faber loudspeaker. With a superior driver design, Sonus faber’s electrical crossovers can be brilliantly simple and are arguably the most musical of all crossover types to bring out the best in an amplifier. In cabinet design, no other manufacturer goes to the lengths to fuse Old World handcrafting with new world technology, with no fewer than eight separate pieces of stunningly finished solid walnut, acting as sidewalls that allow for resonant tuning of the cabinet. Startling dynamics and bass performance are just two of the results of Sonus faber’s approach to speaker design.
