September began with the important debut of a new Sonus faber loudspeakers collection: Lumina.
The new line has been conceived on the notion that now, more than ever, it is important to savor time for ourselves and celebrate life’s precious moments. In today’s world, we have come to fully appreciate our living spaces where these moments come to life.
“Lumina” in Latin means “LIGHT”, but also a source of energy and life. To Sonus faber, this name can be broken down further to add complexity to the term, becoming a sort of acronym:
“LU” – LUXURY sound experience
The first two letters stand for LUXURY– the taste of precious moments, the discovery of refined details and the understanding of truly relevant things. This element symbolizes our commitment to deliver a luxury music experience in all Sonus faber homes, which is facilitated through our longstanding tradition of refined materials and careful craftsmanship.
“MI” –MINIMALIST design
The second two letters stand for MINIMALIST. This principal directly captures the essence of the product. Lumina collection comprises the core values of Sonus faber and its iconic materials, such as real multilayer wood, leather and the natural composition of drivers and combines them with incredible performance in a simple yet luxurious design.
The cabinet of the collection is perfectly squared- the Sonus faber design department executed this minimalistic design in order to emphasize the quality of materials used.
Simplicity remains central to the collection’s identity with its easy set-up, accessible price point, and excellent sound performance– empowering everyone to enjoy a true Sonus faber experience.
“NA” – NATURAL sound
Finally, the last two letters embody the NATURAL sound reproduction and Voice of Sonus faber. The Lumina electro-acoustic project is targeting solutions designed for modern lifestyles and various listening environments, without compromising performance. Multichannel systems and multimedia solutions are perfect for Lumina, offering excellent room coverage for audiences to enjoy a captivating and authentic experience from every seat in the room.
Due to updated technology, Lumina speakers are incredibly adaptable and sound excellent wherever they are placed—even close to a back wall or on a bookshelf.
The beauty of the new Lumina collection is that they can be placed virtually anywhere and will still deliver a breathtaking performance.
From drivers’ standpoint, Lumina speakers can count on:
The iconic D.A.D. (Damped Apex DomeTM) tweeter, the same used in the Sonetto series, featuring a Kurtmueller hand coated soft silk diaphragm of 29mm;
The brand-new 4’’ midwoofer, freshly developed for this collection and equipped with the custom-made basket and the diaphragm based on cellulose pulp blended with other natural fibers;
The 5” midranges are coming from the bigger sisters Sonetto, and still featuring our proprietary natural fiber and paper blend air-dried diaphragm.
The 5’’ woofers were designed from the scratch for this purpose and feature paper pulp cone as well, for a perfect sonic coherence with the rest for the drivers.
The reflex ports give additional versatility for the models’ range, placed on the frontside of the bookshelf and center channel speakers and on the base, down firing, on the floor stander.
Thanks to this solution, Lumina speakers are significantly less sensitive to their placement, allowing sound excellence even when placed close to a backwall or within a bookshelf setting. The beauty of Lumina is that you can place them wherever you want and are sure to enjoy a great performance and listening experience.
