Sonus Faber Olympica speakers

A new milestone for Sonus Faber

Sonus Faber officially presented their new Olympica speakers at Munich High End Show 2013. You'll get some feeling about them from pictures, but you'll have to see them in person. This are the speakers, that Sonus Faber developed secretly for quite some time and with great importance. It's very important line as it priced just above the Cremona line and a lot of loyal customer waited for a speaker like this to add or replaced their old ones.

It got so many things new and updated that I'll wrap them up in dedicated Olympica article with Q & A from both Livio Cuccuza and Paolo Tezzon.  It was also great to seem them both at the stand. Great guys full of life's energy and positive attitude, backed up enormous knowledge and insights in industry workings.

In June - July 2013 I'll be also visiting Sonus Faber HQ's in Italy for a factory visit. It will be interesting to bring you insights into the Italy best.

Sonus Faber Olympica speakers are made in Italy and carries the spirit of the traditional Sonus Faber aura to the 21st century. Sonus Faber Olympica have a completely new drivers and baskets designed by them (paper cone with newly developed materials added), unique enclosure with dedicated vertical bass reflex side port (that can be used for adjusting bass to the room by placing speakers in or out), newly designed feet, midrange speaker coming from Aida etc. Its not a redesigned speaker line, but completely new one. I can see how Olympica will appeal to both audiophiles and music lovers. It's a speaker you don't wanna hide in any way. Trust me :)! They looks gorgeous. The pure maple inserts (in lines) that separate the speakers side segments looks like finest marquetry and are so hard to execute that can be only done in Italy by one person. This adds a dedicated value and proud ownership feeling to the future owners.

Out of subject but still.... One things I repeatedly heard at Sonus Faber booth was the positive comments about new one of the kind walnut finish on Stradivari and Amati Futura speakers. I have to agree. It's one of the best if not the best looking speaker finishes in industry.

Stay tuned for a dedicated Olympica review and dedicated article soon, followed by the company visit. See you soon Enrico :).
