New In-wall and In-ceiling speakers from Sonus faber

Today, from Amsterdam at the ISE show, the Sonus faber division of the McIntosh Group announced a wide range of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. They call this new line of speakers
Palladio, appropriately bearing the name of the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio – a master of classical proportion.

This is fantastic news for those wishing to build an all Sonus faber system without compromise.

Sonus faber’s North America brand manager, William Kline and McIntosh Group’s Senior Marketing Manager David Mascioni gave us a quick call to fill us in on this exciting development.

For now this product that Kline refers to as “35 years in the making,” will consist of two product lines (level 5 and level 6) to compliment the Sonetto and Olympica collections, both from a sonic and aesthetic standpoints. He goes on to tell us that a lot of the core research for these speakers came from those respective lines, in both driver and crossover technology. “They incorporate everything that makes Sonus faber, Sonus faber.” When asked if this was company or market directed, he responded that it was an equal push from both sides, and that from a dealer standpoint, “A multi-channel or HT customer can now have an all Sonus faber system.”

With a total of 13 models, it will be easy to accompany your floor standing Sonus faber speakers with the additional channels required for a custom installation, or even go all in-wall/ceiling. The possibilities are greater than ever.

As you can see from the photos, these are pure Sonus faber, right down to the grilles. Sonus faber is saying that final pricing will be locked in some time in Q2 of this year, with product available in the dealer channel sometime in Q3. We will definitely have more to tell you as soon as we are able to experience these in person.

Watch the Sonus faber website for more information soon, and if you are attending ISE, stop by booth 14-C150. And tell them TONE sent you. Ciao.
