Sonus faber Lumina II & V
The Lumina collection was first introduced in September 2020, standing for LUxury, MInimaslist, Natural. Sonus faber have now added the Lumina II bookshelf and the flagship Lumina V to the range. The new Lumina models maintain the design simplicity of the previous models, in which the minimalist aesthetic styles every detail to be as attractive visually as it is acoustically.
The multilayer wood of the front baffle is available in three finishes Walnut and Wenge wood with Maple inlay matte and Piano Black glossy, with the cabinet outfitted in black leather, true to Sonus faber’s traditional product line.
The Lumina II is the second bookshelf speaker in the collection, next to the Lumina I, with a larger volume and 150 mm mid woofer.
The Lumina II maintains a compact and versatile design perfect for placement within a bookcase or shelving unit or can be positioned on a stand as a rear channel in a home theater system.
The Lumina II enriches the range of two way speakers in the Lumina family, offering a perfect solution for a small system, while also able to fill any room with sound.
The Lumina V is the new flagship in the collection, a slender speaker, with high power handling and fast transient response, capable of producing a natural, generous and emotional sound for an immersive listening experience.
This new three way floor standing model is the richest in terms of freshly developed electro acoustic solutions.
The internal mid high volume is designed with iconic lute shape, a unique feature created by Sonus faber and main characteristic for the brand since its inception in the 1990 ’s.
Inspired by the classic lute shape design of Sonus faber’s higher ranges of speakers, this feature is able to maximize the acoustic performance of the midrange and simultaneously reduce standing waves within the acoustic load volume.
The lute shape design of the internal structure increases the structural rigidity of the mid hi inner enclosure and contributes to the midrange frequency response becoming more natural especially in the frequency range typical of the human voices.
LUMINA V Hybrid IFF Paracross Topology crossover
The new mid high crossover network “Hybrid IFF Paracross Topology TM combines Interactive Fusion Filtering, first introduced in the Maxima Amator in December 2020 with the Paracross Topology TM where reactive components (capacitors and inductors/coils) are placed on the negative rail of the circuitry.
The resulting benefits include a reduction in the drivers’ back EMF (Electro Motive Force) allowing them to operate in a maximally interconnected and organic way, and a lowering of crossover sensitivity to radio frequencies further improving sound definition
