The Homage collection has been enriched with a new element that complements the family; Serafino, a floor speaker with a huge appeal and a surprising power to be explored.
Once again, the name is taken from the history of Italian violin-making: Santo Serafino was a famous venetian master of the first half of the 18th century, specialized in making sturdy yet incredibly delicate violins.
THE VOICE OF SONUS FABER
Mid and High frequencies that make the “Voice of Sonus faber” are here determined by a 28mm silk dome tweeter with ”Arrow Point” DADTM (Damped Apex Dome), implemented with a natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, and a midrange M15 XTR-04 with cellulose pulp cone and Neodymium motor system.This iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange maintain the effortless, warm and involving timber that has become our trademark.
Visible element is the back panel in extruded aluminum, the external part of the Stealth Ultraflex™ system characterized by a laminar tuning. The outline of this part acts as a vent favoring the flow of air through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing any turbulence and hence distortion. The back too is part of the Exosqueleton system complete with Dampshelves on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet.
The violin shape of the speaker cabinet is the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back and making possible a better control of the internal resonances. The brushed aluminum enhances the line and the “Sf” logo in silk-screened glass placed right at the center of the surface.
The new Wengè finish with maple inlays is combined with the aluminum brushed with Titanium finish and with the leather on the front features the new coffee color. The essence of the walnut wood is preserved in the traditional “Red” finish with brushed black aluminum and the leather of the black front in line with the finish of the flagship models Aida, Lilium and Il Cremonese.
The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the so-called “Silent Spikes”, namely the coaxial metal/elastomer/metal spikes, which are an embodiment of the classic patented Zero Vibration Transmission™. This system substantially reduces transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.
