According to the company, the Sonus faber Minima Amator II is the restatement of a product first introduced in 1992 when the company was establishing key principles that would go on to guide future productions: accurate design and high-quality natural materials, combined together to obtain a sound reproduction as natural as possible.
The new Minima Amator II features a compact, solid walnut wood cabinet that is embellished by a thin brass insert at the base, reminiscent of the Electa Amator III design. The front baffle shows the iconic shape of the Voice of Sonus faber and is covered in leather. The rear panel, also covered in leather, houses the exit of the reflex duct and is embellished by the brass binding posts.
Minima Amator II is a 2-way bookshelf loudspeaker system, although it can also be paired with the Carrara Stand (natural completion of Electa Amator III) or with the Unicum stand.
- A 28 mm silk dome Tweeter, implemented with the DAD – Damped Apex Dome technology, for a clear high frequency reproduction. The tweeters of both the models of the Heritage collection feature the tripod design solution that recalls and transmits the style of the first models.
- The “Paracross topology” crossover design, with Clarity Cap ESA capacitors, is specifically customized for Sonus faber.
- A 6-inch midwoofer, developed in the Vicenza-based laboratory, features the well-known cellulose pulp and natural fibers cone on a die-cast aluminum basket.
The suggested retail price for the pair of loudspeakers is 4.000€ (VAT included)
Minima Amator II will be available in European markets in June and in North American and Asian markets in July of 2019.
