Sonus Faber Launches Heritage Collection

Italian speaker specialist Sonus Faber has just launched the Heritage Collection with a two-way bookshelf speaker that echoes 1992’s Electa Amator III.

Slated to arrive in the U.S. in July with a retail price of $4,000/pair, the new Minima Amator II combines a 1-inch silk-dome tweeter, 6-inch mid-woofer, and custom crossover in a walnut-clad cabinet with a brass accent along its base and a sculpted baffle covered in leather — just like its predecessor. The rear panel of the 13-inch-tall cabinet is also covered in leather and boasts brass binding posts.

The tweeter employ’s the company’s proprietary Damped Apex Dome technology, which dampens the tweeter dome to improve high-frequency reproduction by avoiding anti-phase-induced high-frequency roll-off.

Developed in Sonus Faber’s lab in Vicenza, Italy, the woofer cone is made of cellulose pulp and natural fibers and mounted in a die-cast aluminum basket. The custom crossover features Clarity Cap ESA capacitors in a “semi-balanced” design in which the capacitors and inductors/coils are placed on the circuit’s negative rail to reduce sensitivity to radio frequency interference.

While at home on a bookshelf, the Minima Amator II can be paired with the company’s Carrara or Unicum stands, available at extra cost.
