Product Description

Details

Generally when I start writing about a new speaker, I'll describe the way it looks. It's the first impression you get about a speaker and you know what they say about first impressions. Well, what lingers with the Olympica's are the way they sound. It's a sound so utterly beguiling, you'd buy them regardless of their looks. It just so happens they are an incredibly handsome speaker also.

These speakers just took my breath away. The sound is so utterly beguiling, you'll have a hard time leaving the room when they are playing. Particularly impressive are vocals, which come alive with presence and authority that are seldom heard anywhere near this price point. There is space around the music as well, like a veil lifted to illuminate a performance. Bass response is also amazing, with warmth and character just flowing out into the room.

And when you can stop playing music through them, you're left with one of the prettiest speakers to grace our dem rooms in some time - the wodworking is immaculate and the soft leather accents add class without feeling like excess. Even the precision cut metal baffle that runs the length of the side facing port looks spectacular. The elastic 'curtain' grille might not be to everyones tastes, but I dare you not to play it like a harp. In short, we're somewhat smitten with the design, but its the sound that will have you dreaming about these speakers.

Sonus faber wanted to create a family of speakers rich in content but also evocative of those visual and tactile emotions that have always characterized its production. Thus, wood, leather timeless craftsmanship values of careful and passionate production, able to make anyone understand the sincere love for their work and Music. The Sonus faber Olympica project is made up of a new family of passive acoustic speakers that will add to the existing catalogue of the Arcugnano factory, aesthetically characterized by the use of two iconic Sonus faber noble materials, walnut wood and leather.

With this new project Sonus faber has been able, with great balance, to unite our quintessential style with the introduction of significant elements of technological innovation, therefore combining modernity with the classic stylistic canons of Sonus faber. This has been possible thanks to the enormous teamwork by the R&D department, headed by Paolo Tezzon and Livio Cucuzza and the significant growth in terms of manpower and resources. The new Sonus faber Olympica line also represents the desire of the Vicenza house to offer its clients a range of models so that everyone can find the right solution in terms of use (two channel or home theatre) and in terms of space (bookshelf or floor-standing in various dimensions) forever insuring the historic Sonus faber quality in relation to materials implemented, design features, performance , and of course the exclusive charm of a speaker designed as a musical instrument and entirely produced in Italy.
