High-end 2024: Sonus faber Sonetto G2

Using technology from the very expensive Suprema loudspeakers, the new Sonetto G2 series aims to deliver better sound at a much lower price. Sonus faber has learnt a lot during the development of the Suprema system, which they have implemented in the Sonetto G2 series speakers.

The most visible proof of this is the special Camelia midrange with a cone that resembles the leaves of a camellia flower. This special unit can be found on the G2 series flagship, the Sonetto VIII, the slightly smaller Sonetto V and the Sonetto Centre.

All speakers in the series use Sonus faber’s Damped Apex Dome (DAD) tweeter with a woven silk diaphragm that reaches up to 30 kHz. The crossovers are Sonus faber phase-synchronised filters, and the top two models also feature a hybrid IFF and Sonus faber Paracross crossover. Apart from the wall-mounted Sonetto G2 Wall, all models have bass reflex ports, either in front or underneath. On the Sonetto Centre, the port is located on the back.

The enclosures feature Sonus Faber’s signature lute-shaped profile with a cast concrete base, metal rings around the units, leather-covered panels around the tweeter and midrange, and are available in walnut, wenge or black piano lacquer.

The Sonetto G2 series consists of the two compact models Sonetto I and Sonetto II, both of which are two-way, a slim 2.5-way floorstanding speaker called Sonetto III and two larger three-way floorstanding speakers. Sonetto V and Sonetto VIII. The centre speaker is of course called Sonetto Center, while the in-wall speaker is called Sonetto On Wall.
