For their 30th Anniversary Sonus Faber have announced an all-new version of their classic Extrema loudspeaker – that bears a physical resemblance to its ancestor but the similarity stops there.
The technology and materials used in the new Extrema are seriously advanced and the end result promises to be nothing short of breathtaking.
The cabinet has been designed to be as rigid as possible and uses carbon fibre, metal and wood (red spruce from the Val di Fiemme as used in the finest Italian string instruments) in a layered design to achieve unprecedented rigidity and freedom from resonance.
Speaker drivers have been developed from scratch and also use innovative approaches like beryllium with a diamond skin for the tweeter and an adjustable damped rear passive radiator allowing fine tuning of bass response to room acoustics.
Very limited production
Sonus Faber will only make 2-3 pairs of these intricately-crafted speakers a month and no more than 30 pairs in total. They will no doubt become audiophile cult classics.
