Sonus faber Sf16,
feel the connection...

+ Wishlist

In 2016, a new chapter of the Sonus faber history has been written  with the re-born of the most pioneering project that marked our history....
Sf16 is the first “all-in-one” integrated audio system that provides 1400W of powerful performances and a truly easy installing mode and usability.
According to the highest tradition of Sonus faber, Sf16 is also an elegant piece of furniture with a deep luxury appeal.

Imagine a complete hi-fi system that can actually “feel” the atmosphere of your music room: if you are relaxing alone, or if there is a huge party going on, Sf16 can modulate its power and expression to transform your place...

A new technology.

Besides the iconic hi-fi sources, Sf16 can offer a totally different music experience: it can easly play music from the immediate digital media sources (Wireless streaming Platforms manageable via PC, smartphone or tablet) and make available a multi-room listening experience.

The DTS Play-fi Technology gives the freedom and flexibility to wirelessly play the music on mobile devices over an existing Wi-Fi network. The service is provided thanks to a proper app for Apple, Windows or Android.
Sources are…whatever comes to your mind: smartphones and tablets, as well as traditional ones, such as turntables, because the app is 100% connected to the main online streaming services as well as to your personal music library.
This technology let up to 8 stereo DTS Play-fi devices to be connected to a single wi-fi network providing playback in 8 separate rooms: it is possible to stream different music to each room from different mobile devices, giving each family member or guest control over what they want to hear in their room!

FEATURES

  • LOWEST FREQUENCIES

    To obtain a strong bass performance in a small enclosure, we developped a specific 5” unit, ultra long throw design, featuring a lightweight but stiff Aluminum / Magnesium alloy cone.

  • MID-HIGH FREQUENCIES

    For the overall accuracy in music reproduction has been reached with the development of “miniature” real hi-end drivers:
    - A tiny 2.5” midrange featuring a neodymium magnet system and an Aluminum / Magnesium alloy cone for clarity and sound coherence with the woofer;
    #- A modified version of the micro 1/2” by Peter Larsen, probably the smallest hi end tweeter ever designed

  • Sonus faber patents

    Zero vibration technology”, the 2 woofers work axially one to each other and emitting in opposite directions, in a “push push” configuration.
    Sound field shaper”, each channel has 2 midranges and 2 tweeters, half of them front firing and half of them rear firing with the Sound field #shaping emission to enhance the sense of depth of the soundstage.
    Stealth reflex system” implemented to further enhance the low frequency extension while reducing the total amount of distortions.

  • Audio inputs

    In order to enhance the device connectivity and use flexibility, besides the DTS Play-fi wireless connection, Sf16 has been also provided with 3 further audio inputs:
    - Digital S/pdif coaxial
    - Digital Toslink optical
    - AUX analogue RCA

  • Motor system

    The Sf16 movement is done by two strong Aluminum / Carbon fiber arms activated by brushless motors digitally controlled.
