Sonus faber has announced the Maxima Amator, a two-way design speaker that merges two drivers to achieve what the company calls “a unique emotion with the maximum representation of natural sound.” The two-way concept has been a strong piece of brand identity for Sonus faber products, and the Maxima Amator aims to pay homage to this tradition and to music itself.
The latest addition to the Heritage collection is completely made in Italy, with a solid walnut wood cabinet, which has been designed thanks to modern wood working methods that allowed Sonus faber the ability to develop a reliable floorstanding cabinet and overcome the structural limits of the solid wood. Great care was taken to create the cabinet’s internal volumes definition — with the cabinet divided into three separate chambers designed to increase the rigidity of the structure, minimizing resonances and shielding the crossover, hosted in a dedicated chamber visible from the back of the cabinet.
The same drivers are utilized as in the Electa Amator III, the 28 mm D.A.D. – Damped Apex Dome tweeter with Neodymium magnetic motor system and solid spruce wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, and the 180mm mid-woofer with air-dried membrane made of cellulose pulp and natural fibers, mounted on the Sonus faber original design die-cast aluminum basket. Unveiled in the Maxima Amator, Sonus faber has developed the IFF Crossover “Interactive Fusion Filtering” design that foregoes the classical first order series iteration, with non-academic transfer functions based on its accelerated progressive slopes.
The Maxima Amator will be available through authorized Sonus faber dealers beginning December 2020 with suggested MSRP being $15,000 USD.
