SOLD OUT Prices include 21% VAT
In observance of the 500th anniversary of the birth of legendary architect Andrea Palladio, Sonus Faber has created a unique Limited Edition of the prestigious Homage line. Cabinets are crafted from natural blond maple, with fittings in silver and palladium, and a woofer phase plug shaped from genuine Vicenza stone.

The tribute to Stradivari further defines that ambition to bring the identity of the loudspeaker ever more closer to that of a musical instrument. At its outset, the project was based on the idea that a front that was wider than traditional canons could lead to the simulation of the 2p infinite plane, translating the model of a theoretically perfect acoustic source and offering an absolutely innovative reproduction performance. And thus, the large front panel: it does not disperse but accumulates the energy of the loudspeakers, and then reflects it. An elliptic design for a three-way system capable of offering a totally different, emotionally enthusiastic response.

- System: 3 way floorstanding vented box loudspeaker.

- Cabinet: elliptical shape design, multilayer, constrained-mode damping, enclosure formed using hand selected wood layers, quality graded and oriented for carefully optimized resonances control. Sub-structural ribs are strategically placed for absolute rejection of spurious vibrations.

- Tweeter: 25 mm ultra dynamic linearity neodymium ring radiator driver, with dual toroidal wave-guide. Natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, with mechanical anti-resonator synergycally designed and integrated “acoustic ambient”.

- Midrange: 150 mm ultra dynamic linearity driver. Ccaw/kapton “eddy current free” voice coil. Dynamically linear magnetic field motor incorporating kellog and faraday rings. All moving elements optimally ventilated for “resonance free” response. Designed synergistically with its vented “acoustic chamber”.

- Woofers: 260 mm lightweight aluminium/magnesium alloy cone driver in an acoustically amorphous vented chamber. A dual faraday copper ring long-throw motor system with a 2” “eddy current free” voice coil is implemented for an ultra dynamic performance and linearity. Special coaxial anti-compressors are used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.

- Cross-over: special multi slope structure with optimized phase/amplitude response. The impedance at low frequencies is controlled for a clear amplifier friendly performance. A unique structured precious metal alloy conductors used, totally coherent on the entire signal path. Cross-over points 300 hz - 4.000 hz.

- Frequency response: 22 hz - 40.000 hz, tuning ports included.
- Sensitivity: 92 db spl (2,83 v/1m).
- Nominal impedance: 4 ohm.
- Power handling: 30w - 300w, without clipping.
- Finish: Palladio
- Dimensions: 1370 x 655 x 500 mm (hxwxd).
- Weight: 151,8 kg per pair - net weight / 198,6 kg per pair-shipping weight.
