About Sonus faber: Founded in 1983 in a small workshop in the hills of Vicenza, Sonus faber (Italian for “handcrafted sound”) is the fusion of cutting edge loudspeaker design and innovation with Italian craftsmanship, values and techniques taken from the high art of musical instrument making. The passion of Sonus faber combined with these principles has paved the way for iconic designs that have influenced the art of speaker making – perhaps more than any other manufacturer – over the last quarter century.
