Synergy Audio launches highly anticipated Italian luxe speakers to Australia
March 26, 2017
A tribute to the mastery of Italian violin-making, the lute shaped design of Homage is a hallmark of Sonus faber production. This has been revisited and taken to new heights by embodying classic lines of design and a low-frequency cabinet that ensures the reproduction of exceptional sound.
Synergy Audio Visual announced Australian availability of the Homage Tradition on 23 March 2017, a brand-new range of high-end floor-standing speakers from the most sophisticated and prestigious acoustic speaker and audio electronic manufacturers in the world, Sonus faber. Boasting luxe aesthetics, Australian availability coincides with the launch of Homage Tradition globally.
Sonus faber wishes to evoke Italian design and creativity at their best by restyling the Homage collection, the company’s most iconic line which has been completely revamped in keeping with its rich past and precious legacy.
The collection features four elements: Amati, Guarneri, Vox and the newcomer Serafino, a 3,5 ways floor-standing speaker, whose name is taken from the history of Italian violin-making (Santo Serafino – 1699/1758 – Venetian master trained at Nicolò Amat iworkshop).
The made-in Italy appeal and the great Sonus faber tradition find their expression in a classic and slightly retro approach, where the classical lute shape is still central and maintains the roots with the history but components, finishes and design has been completely renewed.
The lute shape of the cabinets of the collection is the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, blending the lines of previous models of the Tradition collection with those inherited from Lilium and giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back. This evolution allows the cabinet to better control internal resonances.
The distinctive feature of the design of the new Homage Tradition collection and are call of the original Homage collection is the new layout of the top whose main accents, once again, wood with the same finish of the sides.
The Guarneri Tradition stand plays a key role in the aesthetic and electro-acoustic design. It’s made in carbon fiber monocoque and sums the know-how reached with the Sonus faber-Pagani Automobili partnership and Ex3ma production. The curved outline of the stand, though much lighter and acoustically transparent than its predecessor, ensures maximum structural strength.
Homage Tradition collection is available in two finishes:
RED: Traditional walnut wood essence with black inlays combined with brushed black Aluminum and black leather (like flagships Aida, Lilium and Il Cremonese);
WENGÈ: Wengè wood essence – used for the first time by Sonus faber – with maple inlays (reference to the walnut finish of Olympica collection) with brushed Aluminumin Titanium finish and brown leather.
