Sonus Faber Olympica I 6" 2-Way Walnut Bookshelf Speakers (Pair) - OLYMPICAIWAL

Olympica I.
Olympic Theatre: it is design, planning, harmony, proportions, acoustics, sensitivity, search for beauty, wonder, expert processing of materials, emotions. One of the greatest works of the Master and chief architect Andrea Palladio created before his death as a perennial gift to Vicenza, enriching it further with another precious gem and a universal example of beauty and ingenuity. True and exemplary values that all can enjoy and make their own thanks to their glorious and radiant presence. And Sonus faber created in this beautiful and fortunate land could not but make this teaching and principles its own since its very beginning, inextricably linking them to their own history and then applying them in its Musical instruments which proudly resonate with the harmony of the city and the art that inspired them.  In acknowledgement of the unique legacy of Andrea Palladio, Sonus faber has decided to create  Sonus faber Olympica, a sincere homage to the Olympic Theatre, temple of geometric pleasure in the voice of Music, the container in which sound seamlessly expands and an accurate reference model of acoustic enhancement.

The project.
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.  The launch of the new family will occur in two phases, the first three models Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floor-standing) will be presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 – 12 May and the remaining part will see the spotlights at the end of the summer. 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.

Features:

  • Cabinet
    Cabinet is characterized by the use of natural walnut wood, top and bottom in solid walnut and with magnificent joints in clear maple wood in the walnut finish and more Cabinet is characterized by the use of natural walnut wood, top and bottom in solid walnut and with magnificent joints in clear maple wood in the walnut finish and more traditional black maple in the graphite finish. The form is the synthesis of the experience gained with the flagship Aida and the classic lyre form. The important difference lies in the particular asymmetry of the section introduced for the first time by Sonus faber
  • Aluminium Stand
    The bookshelf model benefits from a special anodized aluminum stand (derived from the evolution of the Guarneri model) that allows the speaker to take the correct inclination and, just like the floor models, is equipped with adjustable stainless steel feet to ensure stability and durability.
  • Natural Leather
    The top is covered in natural leather (with feature stitching and hot branded Sonus faber logo) and aluminum ring, the front baffle is covered in natural leather with no visible screws and the back is also covered in leather with sunken serial number tags below which there are the terminals.
  • Reflex
    The last but significant aesthetic note is the unusual location and geometry of the side reflex port vertically designed and embellished with a perforated metal sheet placed in the vicinity of the long outlet.

A special custom diaphragm is made with a real time air-dried, non-pressed blend of traditional cellulose pulp, kapok, kenaf and other natural fibers developed by ear according to the most natural sound. To further inhibit any residual cone coloration, we use a transparent viscous surface damping coating.
