Stradivari Homage

The shape of sound.


Story

The Homage to Stradivarius further defines the ambition of bringing the identity of the acoustic loudspeaker increasingly closer to that of a musical instrument. The project was originally inspired by the fact that an enlarged front with respect to traditional canons could lead to the simulation of the 2π infinite plane, translating the model of the theoretically perfect acoustic source and offering absolutely innovative reproductive performance. This led to the large front panel, which accumulates the energy of the loudspeakers, instead of dispersing it, and then reflects it. The elliptical design for a three-way system is capable of providing a totally different and emotionally exciting response. It is a renewal that has developed through the rediscovery of the cardinal values of the Sonus faber sound.

The formal aspect of the Stradivari homage expresses its conceptual origin. It is shaped like two facing lutes: a further development of the construction criterion of Sonus faber loudspeakers. However, the “soul” of Stradivari is also reminescent of the construction principles of stringed instrument making, because inside it houses a linking elementthat unites the two walls, just like the joined plates of a violin. The exclusive cabinet features curved walls. The density of the wood employed to make the walls, the quality and the direction of the fibres have been carefully researched to distribute and control resonance.
