They are intended to achieve a more modest price point than some previous Sonus faber products. But you wouldn’t know that to look or listen to them – walnut veneer, excellent sound, and “Made in Italy” elegance make you think that these could be Sonus faber’s flagships.
From the aluminum outriggers to the embossed leather top cap, the Sonettos surprise. With three aluminum woofers, a pulp-composite midrange, and an excellent soft-dome tweeter, the speakers can play more loudly than you should listen – even in a large room. The speakers’ clever downward-firing port maintains the sleek lines and extends the bass significantly. Dual jumpers on the terminals allow for bi-wiring or bi-amplification.
The Sonus faber Sonetto VIII is available in black, white, or walnut and offers performance that surprises on many fronts. See the upcoming full review for additional details.
