3-way floorstanding loudspeaker system. Vented box design.

MSRP $3,999.00

From the Sonus Faber website:

A sound that surprises the listener, who loves music and its natural reproduction.

Sonus faber has always found his inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time we have entrusted the representation of the new Sonetto collection to the history of our literature. The Sonnet is the oldest Italian poetic structure. Originally it meant “ sound, melody“ and was traditionally used to accompany musical performances. The Sonetto collection bears the name of the deepest roots in the history of Italian literature and the rest of the world.

Available in 3 colors: Walnut/Wenge as shown, Gloss Black, Gloss White

Excerpts from HomeTheaterReview.com’s excellent review of the Sonetto III’s:

(https://hometheaterreview.com/sonus-faber-sonetto-iii-loudspeakers-reviewed/    By Bob Barrett | 

“The cabinet has the now familiar Sonus faber lute (teardrop) shape, eliminating any parallel walls to prevent any internal resonance issues. The Sonettos share the “Voice of Sonus faber” combination of a 29-millimeter damped apex dome (DAD) tweeter and a 150-millimeter midrange driver. The midrange driver is constructed of Sonus faber’s proprietary natural cone formula, including air-dried cellulose and other natural fibers. The DAD tweeter is claimed to reduce distortion, extend upper frequencies, and provide better off-axis performance. This technology was previously only available in their costlier Reference, Homage Tradition, and Olympica lines.”

“There are also two 150-millimeter aluminum alloy cone woofers beneath the midrange driver. Both the midrange and woofer transducers are new designs. According to Sonus faber, the new woofer was designed to deliver fast, tight, and extended bass. All the Sonetto floorstander and bookshelf models have an integrated bass reflex design, with a 2.75-inch diameter bottom port designed to direct sound forward toward the listener. This design solution is intended to achieve extended bass response while maintaining a cleaner design and providing for easier room placement.”

A HARMONIOUS FORM

With its small size, the Sonetto III floor loudspeaker does not compromise in terms of technological content and design solutions. With its strong and elegant presence, Sonetto III completes the range of floor diffusers in the collection.
