Sonus faber




Sonus Faber was founded in 1980 by a group of audiophiles who decided to dedicate themselves to the design and production of a speaker system of superior musical quality. The originator of this project was Franco Serblin who suggested combining music with his passion for cabinetmaking. His love for music and wood brought about the creation of the Snail Project, a revolutionary system of Leonardo Da Vinci - like inspiration. Several other audiophiles then expressed a desire to own one of these systems and so a small number of them were produced. The new style proved very popular and so it was decided to design a speaker that would have the same construction features as the Snail Project. This led to the creation of the Parva followed by other products with the same superior musical qualities and compact size - features which have proved very successful thanks to their compatibility with the domestic environment. Sonus Faber products have attracted wide interest in many other countries too. So, in 1987 it was decided to open the doors to foreign markets and to transfer production and offices to a new building able to meet the new demand. In 1990 Mr. Cesare Bevilacqua became a partner to Mr. Serblin and with a background of working for a large company started to reorganize the economical and financial structure. Now he is the President and following Mr. Serblin the inspiration to run Sonus Faber. He is working to consolidate the position of the company all over in the world. The Extrema was launched in 1991. This revolutionary speaker system is still today one of the highest technological and musical expressions of all dynamic speakers. In 1993 we introduced the Guarneri Homage rare and unique acoustic monitor dedicated to the memory of the Master Violin Maker Giuseppe Guarnieri. City of Cremona have the first pair produced, installed in the Salon of the Violin. Salvatore Accardo and Uto Ughi, ambassadors in the world of the great music, have pairs no. 002 and 003. Sonus Faber exports 80% of its production to Europe, U.S.A. and the Far East. The company employs 20 people and is assisted by the external collaboration of a further 30. Sonus Faber has a policy of constant research inspired by the past; it draws on the ancient art of lute-making in the design of the acoustic cabinets and uses modern technology for the transducers.
