We’ve been reviewing the brand new Sonus faber Omnia for the past 2 months and you can read what we thought about it here.
It’s an exceptionally well-made wireless speaker in a category that could use some more sex appeal. The Naim Mu-so has been twiddling its thumbs and drinking tea alone for far too long.
Sonus faber is very proud of its Italian heritage and the team led by Livio Cucuzza has put its heart and soul into this product.
Exclusive: Sonus faber Omnia Review or continue reading our overview below.
What The Omnia Offers
The Omnia is a Stereo 4-way; DSP-optimized closed box system equipped with two new trademarked technologies from Sonus faber.
SENSO™: This is a touch-sensitive interface that allows users to control the Omnia and easily connect to any digital or analog source, including a TV, turntable, or mobile device. The illuminated lines on the top SENSO™ panel further indicate the speakers’ mode, input, and volume.
The intuitive interface allows users to enjoy music via streaming, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in, and also includes a MM phono stage through a unique dongle that plugs into the rear panel of the speaker.
An HDMI ARC input is also included to enhance television sound with one direct connection.
CRESCENDO™: This is an advanced signal processing system that provides enhanced dimensionality and immersion. Three-dimensional sound immerses listeners in a unique, natural acoustic experience. The result is a crisp wavefront and wide soundstage that has the character of a live performance, as is the tradition of Sonus faber audio products.
