+ Wishlist

2016 marked a new chapter in Sonus faber’s rich history with the re-birth of a classic icon first pioneered in 1980: The Snail.
Sf16 is a tribute to this classic speaker and subwoofer combination which adds the latest in driver technology, a powerful 1400 watt amplification system complete with wireless connectivity and an elegant new look nothing short of luxurious.

Re-imagined as a complete all-in-one hi-fi system, the Sf16 has the unique ability to adjust driver location based on optimal dispersion at a given output level.  Whether relaxing alone or hosting a loud party, Sf16 can use its motorized arms to transform itself to meet your needs.

A new technology.

In addition to playing standard analog and digital sources, the SF16 is equipped with DTS Play-fi Technology.  This new standard allows for the unit to be controlled wirelessly via a smartphone or desktop application and join up to 7 otherPlay-fi enabled speakers for synchronous or decoupled music playback from your network, portable device, or favorite streaming service.”

FEATURES

  • MOTOR SYSTEM

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

  • DEEP BASS

    To optimize low frequency extension, we incorporated two custom designed ultra long throw drivers featuring a rigid but extremely light Aluminum/Magnesium alloy cone.

  • MID-HI FREQUENCIES

    Accuracy in music reproduction is acheived through the use of 2” midrange drivers featuring powerful neodynium magnets and Aluminum/Magnesium allow drivers. The tweeter is a ½” modified silk dome design for maximum clarity and musicality.

  • SONUS FABER PATENTS

    "Zero Vibration Technology” each woofer has an opposing woofer mounted at 180 degrees in a push-push configuration for cancellation of internal vibration.
    Sound Field Shaper” rear-facing midrange and tweeters are designed to enhance soundstage depth, width and immersion.#“Stealth Reflex System” Custom port and bass reflex designs are implemented to enhance low-frequency extension while reducing distortion.
