The Stradivari Factor

In celebration of Sonus faber’s 40th Anniversary, the company is re-introducing its Stradivari loudspeaker, which first debuted in 2004. The new second-generation model has been artistically redesigned and technologically improved.

The Stradivari is a floor-standing speaker designed to be the epitome of Sonus faber’s philosophy. Inspired by Antonio Stradivari, the world’s most famous violin maker (that is where the Stradivarius brand name comes from), the new Stradivari is a union between a vision of a dream and the art of technique that pushes the limits of innovation and engineering.

Similar to its first iteration, Stradivari follows the stylistic signatures of Sonus faber featuring a sublime finish and premium woodwork but with a new pentagonal shape that allows for an enhanced listening experience from its original elliptical footprint.

From Chief of Design Livio Cucuzza: “It is never easy for a designer to reinvision an original launch, so when the conversation came about redesigning Stradivari it was challenging but also exhilarating,…How do we recreate a product that continues to stand the test of time and has almost become an artifact? For this, we needed to figure out how to bring Stradivari into this generation of Sonus faber. We wanted to ensure that the new Stradivari represented all the advancements Sonus faber has made in sound technology to date, while still keeping the brand’s classic external look and feel.

Sonus faber Stradivari Crossover

The Stradivari is designed to provide listeners with the highest performance and cutting-edge sound technology. The Stradivari is crafted with Sonus faber’s most advanced and cutting-edge sound technology through the following key features:

  • Low-Frequency Adjuster: This feature provides full control of the ultra-low range tuning, generating an unprecedented sound experience and uncompromised room response optimization
  • Anti-resonant Organic Basket: This specially designed feature allows the woofer to avoid vibration modes generated by the woofer membrane

  • Clepsydra Technology: The features allow the reflex port to maximize low-frequency descent performance while simultaneously containing the length of the reflex duct.
  • INTONO Technology: This feature is designed to guarantee the most natural possible reproduction of midrange frequencies, significantly reducing the size and the filter components of the crossover.
