Sonus Faber Amati: Luxurious Italian Loudspeakers celebrate a five hundred year anniversary

  • 17 January, 2006 15:23

<p>Melbourne, VIC - December 2005 - The Sonus Faber Homage series singles out musical instrument makers that have represented this tradition of Sonus Faber’s local region with distinction, often recalling the shapes of their signature instruments. With Amati Anniversario, Sonus Faber celebrates the birth of lute maker Andrea Amati (1505-1577) five hundred years ago.</p>
<p>This new homage to the great Maestro of stringed instrument making from Cremona is a sound diffuser perpetuating the experience gained from the most important Sonus Faber project of all: Stradivari homage. In this instance the lute-shaped cabinet of the Amati Anniversario efficaciously "harmonises" resonances, in keeping with Sonus Faber master craft tradition, while the attention dedicated to the considerable and painstaking research of the project embodies its most innovative scientific aspects. Amati anniversario has been created to breathe life into the melodious weft of the fabric of music, in all its nuances; making the listening experience an extraordinarily intense event.</p>
<p>Sonus Faber of Italy is now regarded as one of the most accomplished speaker manufacturers in the world, with a range of both compact and floorstanding ultra high-quality designs. Their products are critically acclaimed worldwide, and the demand is so great for their top end models that often a waiting list is unavoidable.</p>
<p>The designers and engineers at Sonus Faber are a little different to those at other companies - they have a great love of music both traditional and modern that borders on obsession. It is their aim to allow the listener to hear every nuance and emotion that was intended by the composer or expressed by the performers, music that is felt by the heart as much as it is heard, a listening experience that is made moving and far more memorable. Loudspeakers you can love.</p>
<p>All Sonus Faber loudspeakers are highly regarded for their exquisite construction and finish, with cabinets made of fine timbers and leather that house custom-built and designed drivers. The crafted nature of their production is similar to that used in the art of violin making. Precious timbers are hand selected for their "harmonic" characteristics, and even varnishes are applied according to traditional time-tested formulas. The result is something really special.</p>
<p>The Amati Anniversario is offered in two finishes, Rosso Violino and Graphite.</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
