The Fifth Generation
The Guarneri Generation 5° Speakers continue Sonus faber’s legacy of pristine design while harnessing the power of cutting-edge technology. The fifth generation Guarneri speaker is equipped with a new midwoofer that reduces resonance and delivers nuanced acoustic detail. New crossover technology lowers the noise floor and eliminates background noise, delivering three-dimensional sound with the timing and layers of a live performance.
Sonus faber Homage continues Italy’s centuries-long history of music innovation. Taking note from master artisans throughout the centuries – Andrea Amati, Santo Serafino, and Giuseppe Guarneri – Homage honors music heritage through an unmatched combination of sound quality and design.
Cutting-edge technology defines the latest generation of Homage. Each upgrade elevates the sonic power of Homage, while maintaining pristine musical detail. The result is transformative, three-dimensional sound, replicating the sensation of a live performance inside any space.
Stunning design is a cornerstone of the Homage series. The newest generation marries old-world artisanship with contemporary elegance. Homage’s iconic wood lute-shaped cabinets are now available in three stunning finishes: Graphite, Wengè and Red.
“The most complex, but also exciting moment for a designer is when he is called upon to improve a timeless icon,” said Chief of Design Livio Cucuzza. “How do you innovate a product whose image is immune to the passage of time and the changing fashion trends? The only way is to take a step back, reflect and deeply understand why that product was initially created. I faced this challenge straight on with my team at Sonus faber. The third generation of Homage was the first product I worked on, and the latest launch we are unveiling is the fifth – the most evolved, the most mature, but equally authentic and special. A story that repeats itself, crossing the evolutionary path in different stages of my own life, never ceasing to fascinate me and make me proud to be part of it.“ Livio Cucuzza – Chief Design Officer
A standard soft dome tweeter’s apex anti-phase behaviour is responsible for early high-frequency roll-off. The D.A.D tweeter ensures better high-frequency reproduction by dampening the apex of the silk soft dome tweeter, avoiding anti-phase behaviour.
The Guarneri midwoofer has been optimised for phenomenal control. The pristine neodymium motor system and new tuning frequency are designed to deliver powerful sound without distortion.
Nine layers of natural wood are combined according to the grain and finished with nine coats of beautiful lacquer. Then, multiple steps of sanding and brushing by hand ensure every sonus faber speaker is a joy to behold. In keeping with the ethos of Homage, Guarneri generation 5 marries state-of-the-art sound technology wth visual artistry in three stunning finishes: Graphite, Wenge, and Red Violin.
Phase Coherent Crossover
Phase Coherent Crossover is designed to deliver immersive, three-dimensional sound throughout the room. The hand soldered hi-end custom spec capacitors and inductors crate sonic clarity while handling high power levels and lowering the noise floor.
Functioning as the exponential section of the duct and thanks to its design, Stealth Ultraflex improves the aerodynamic flow of the air stream emitted by the reflex ducts and is an integral part of the system. The extruded aluminium parts ive further structural rigidity to the cabinet and now come in a beautiful deep grey brushed auminium finish.
The Carbon Fiber Stand
The Guarneri’s stand has ever been an integral part of the entire speaker completing it in an essential and symbiotic way. This new TRadition stand is the fruit of the experience gained bu Sonus Faber in recent years in the use of composite materials and specifically Carbon Fiber (thanks to collaboration with Pagani Automobili and creation of Ex3ma).
