Sonus Faber’s Minima Amator 11: True state-of-the-art craftsmanship.

 
By Dick Tan

Slated to make a grand appearance at the coming KL International AV Show 2019 this July is the latest re-incarnation of Sonus Faber’s Minima Amator which first appeared in 1992.

This new statement is called the Minima Amator 11.

Inspired by more than 36 years of know-how in the high-end audio market, the Minima Amator 11 is said to merge Sonus Faber’s iconic aesthetics, innovative speaker technology and high-end Italian craftsmanship to create a hi-fi speaker that any audiophile can be

HIGH END 2019: Sonus faber Minima Amator II

By | May 16th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

The new Sonus faber Minima Amator II is a two-way, two-driver bass reflex design whose cabinet, as with most Sonus faber cabinets, is made from walnut that on the front baffle and rear panel is covered with hand-tooled leather. It debuted at HIGH END 2019, held in Munich last week…. (Click on image for larger view.)

The bass/midrange driver is a 203mm diameter driver whose cellulose pulp cone is supported by a die-cast aluminium basket. This is crossed at 2.5kHz, using Sonus faber’s trademarked ‘Paracross’ crossover network technology, to Sonus faber’s trademark 28mm silk-dome tweeter, with its damped apex dome… what Sonus faber calls ‘Arrow Point’ technology.… Read the full article

Krell K-300i Integrated Amplifier, Sonus Faber Olympica III Loudspeakers, ZenSati Cabling

By | May 13th, 2019|Categories: Stereophile|

Krell had a big display at Munich High End show and seems to be on the brink—or maybe in the midst—of a major new-product and marketing surge.

Walter Schofield, the company’s CEO, told me that in addition to a few new products recently introduced, many more are just on the horizon. The new products—and the new marketing push—are based on two recent technical advances. The first, iBias, which was introduced by Krell in 2014, is a sliding-bias scheme that ensures there’s always a positive bias for both phases of the waveform.… Read the full article

Sonus Faber’s New Little Bookshelf – The Minima Amator II

By | May 9th, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

Sonus Faber Minima Amator II

Two-way designs in the bookshelf form factor can be magical in the right space. It takes a special skill set to deliver optimal near field or low-level listening for an office space while still maintaining some of that angelic high-end sparkle. Sonus Faber makes some of the best sounding flagship floor standers out there, and now they hope to replicate some of that hifi mojo with their new Minima Amator II loudspeaker.

While not the least expensive 6″ speaker out there, the Amator II builds upon much of the stellar industrial design that is utilized in some of their other high-end products.… Read the full article

THE PROJECT – BECAUSE THERE IS NO FUTURE WITHOUT A PAST

Some products are not meant to be tied to a singular historical moment. Electa Amator III and Minima Amator II were born with this concept in mind and together give life to the Heritage collection from Sonus faber.  Paying homage to its past through classic design, while strongly breaking through the barrier of time with an electro-acoustic point of view, the Heritage collection transmits the tradition of the brand and enhances its artistic relevance.

Vancouver Audio Festival: B&W, YG Acoustics and Naim, Sonos with Sonus Faber

By | April 30th, 2019|Categories: Audiostream|

When you live in a city like Vancouver that has a number of bricks-and-mortar hi-fi shops, it’s easy to forget that not everyone can hop in car, climb on a bus or a train and check out world-class gear within 20 minutes of their home.

FLORIDA 2019 – Sumiko Analog, Pro-Ject, Sonus Faber, Pangea Audio

By | March 13th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

ES000186

Pro-Ject was on site demonstrating the EISA-award-winning combination of Roon-enabled network endpoint (StreamBox S2 Ultra) and MQA capable DAC (PreBox S2 Digital) with two sets on hand for listening. In addition to the streaming and digital products, they were showing their higher performance RPM-series turntable, and Sonus Faber Guaneri Homage loudspeakers.

For myself it’s the PreBox S2 Digital that is and should be all the rage. A small, 5V driven stereo DAC / Preamplifier box, with a built-in headphone amplifier. It’s spec’d out in ways, that I almost consider it a portable device as well, despite its intended design for desktop or audiophile rack based systems.… Read the full article

Sonus Faber Palladio

Italy-based Sonus Faber is slowing working its way into my short list of favorites in high end audio. Our listening sessions to the flagship Aida and all sorted products from the diverse palate of loudspeakers creations have always been richly rewarding. Now the brand is launching two new lines of custom install products (Level 5 and Level 6) under the Palladio Collection to compliment existing options or create new ones.

Level 5 is set to coincide with the Sonette speakers and Level 6 Olympica.… Read the full article
