Sonus faber Launches Duetto active wireless loudspeaker system
Sonus faber engineers have built on the company’s decades-old philosophy of the most natural sound reproduction through the use of natural materials. The Duetto lute shape wood cabinet merged with an elegant and custom designed heatsink guarantees cabinet stiffness and musicality while avoiding internal resonance, creating the Sonus faber signature Natural Sound.
Housed within the heatsinks are two amplifiers – a 100W class AB amplifier that takes care of the 0.7” silk domed tweeter for accurate and smooth high frequency reproduction, and a 205W class D amplifier to drive the 5.25” paper pulp mid/bass driver. The top of the cabinet features the leather-finished SENSOTM interface, which allows for the user to control the speaker functions such as volume, input selection, and connections.
A multi-functional all-in-one HiFi system with ease of use very much in mind, Duetto is WiFi CertifiedTM and features a full suite of digital connections to popular audio streamers, including AirPlay, Chromecast, Tidal, Spotify, Roon ready, and Bluetooth. TV users can easily upgrade the sound of their displays via the HDMI and optical digital input, whilst vinyl users can utilise the built-in moving magnet turntable input, which is also switchable for line-level sources. Set up is simple thanks to the new Sonus faber app that allows users to customise settings, whilst UWB (Ultra Wide Band) technology avoids latency and interference in the connection between the two speakers.
“Our intention behind expanding into the wireless speaker category is to provide our consumers with the Sonus faber authentic sound quality they know and love combined into one versatile package. Duetto is a true Sonus faber stereo system, blending 40 years of premium speaker design, Italian style and materials with modern technology and streaming features,” said Chief of Design Livio Cucuzza. “Today’s streaming capabilities does not compromise quality but rather offers an even higher quality for an almost infinite choice of music. Place the Duetto in your preferred space, choose your favourite source, close your eyes, and enjoy a one-of-a-kind listening experience”.
Duetto is a 2-way stereo system, featuring a 0.7” tweeter and a 5.25” mid-woofer, all formulated from scratch in Vicenza, Italy by the Sonus faber research and design team.
