Flagship of Homage Tradition collection, Amati is the new reference floorstanding loudspeaker in the Sonus faber catalogue, right after Il Cremonese, Lilium and Aida, from which inherits many technical solutions and patents. A REVAMPED TRADITION Homage Tradition collection is a new tribute to the mastery of Italian violin-making; the now classic lute shape, the hallmark of Sonus faber production, has been revisited and taken to new heights by embodying both the classic lines of the Homage collection and those of the Lilium cabinet, thus giving new volumes to the speakers of this collection. THE AESTHETIC OF THE “LA DOLCE VITA” The world of ancient shipyards and the tradition of Italy’s shipwrights are the essence of the inspiration of the design of the Tradition collection. The new Wengè finish with maple inlays is the true aesthetic novelty of the collection and immediately links it with the elegant and timeless design of the most famous Italian motor-boats of the ``La Dolce Vita`` with their iconic wooden hulls. FEATURES All the speakers of the Homage Tradition collection are the fruit of painstaking electro-acoustic research. The patents and technological solutions that have been developed from the Sonus faber to Aida and implemented and adapted with Lilium, Il Cremonese and the Olympica collection are once again applied and taken to even greater heights, adapting them to the needs of these new projects. CABINET The violin shape of the speaker cabinet is the fruit of careful research and major restyling. The curves of the sides change and double, giving these speakers larger volumes especially on the back and making possible a better control of the internal resonances. The brushed aluminium enhances the line and the “Sf” logo in silk-screened glass placed right at the center of the surface. FINISHES The new Wengè finish with maple inlays is combined with the aluminium brushed with Titanium finish and with the leather on the front features the new coffee colour. The essence of the walnut wood is preserved in the traditional “Red” finish with brushed black aluminium and the leather of the black front in line with the finish of the flagship models Aida, Lilium and Il Cremonese. STEALTH ULTRAFLEX™ Visible element is the back panel in extruded aluminum, the external part of the Stealth Ultraflex™ system characterized by a laminar tuning. The outline of this part acts as a vent favoring the flow of air through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing any turbulence and hence distortion. The back too is part of the Exosqueleton system complete with Dampshelves on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet. ZERO VIBRATION TRANSMISSION™ The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the patented Zero Vibration Transmission™ optimized suspension system with alternating surfaces metal/elastomer/metal overlapped inside the bracket-spike group. This system reduces the transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also, acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.
