Sonus faber had it's origins in the 1980s when Franco Serblin came up with a completely new concept for that time, an all-in-one system entirely made in solid wood.
On March 25, 1983 Sonus faber becomes a company in its first headquarter, a small laboratory in Monteviale, on the hills of Vicenza, Italy. Sonus faber launches its first product Parva, a 2-way monitor speaker with a midrange cone in Kevlar and the cabinet in solid walnut wood. In the late 1980s, they began to be internationally recognized by their accurate design and high-quality natural materials responsible for natural sound reproduction.
Sonus faber continues to impress the market with a variety of new lines and finally moves the headquarter to Arcugnano in 2003, in a building designed by the famous Studio Albanese and defined by the architect himself “a place for music” with the shape of a violin.
We are excited to introduce you to Sonus faber everyday luxury speakers here at Gramophone.
ARTISAN OF SOUND
Sonus faber offers the following seven home speaker collections, each carrying a multitude of speaker options:
This beautiful collection inherits four specialty speakers, the limited SE2017, Aida, the pinnacle of the Sonus faber catalog, Lilium a speaker with dual curvature, and lastly Il Cremonese, created with a unique five non-parallel walls structure.
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.
The Flagship of this collection is Amati, the reference floor-standing loudspeaker.

Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line.
The result is a new Collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance our most prestigious creations.
The Lumina collection by Sonus faber presents an exciting change, new to the typical Sonus faber product design portfolio but still able to embody the history and values of the brand. “Simplicity” is central to the collection’s identity that aims to reach a wide audience and to deliver a luxury music experience in all Sonus faber homes, which is facilitated through our longstanding tradition of refined materials and careful craftsmanship.
Some products are not meant to be tied to a singular historical moment and some experiences made our brand so unique and distinctive. Electa Amator III and Minima Amator II were born from this awareness and together they give life to the Sonus faber Heritage collection, in which we collected our intangible values, our tradition, and our Italian expertise.
Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time they entrusted the history of Italian's 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.
With the Gravis collection, Sonus faber returns to its roots, incorporating cutting-edge technology while maintaining its identity of natural sound and quality Italian hand-craftsmanship.
Developed as a solution to the lack of high-quality craftsmanship and warmth of sound in modern architectural speakers, the Palladio collection works to expand the spaces of the listening experience, beyond the boundaries of traditional listening rooms. Palladio custom installation speakers guarantee a total sound immersion with versatile models, also aesthetically pleasing in design.
