Sonus faber adds Lumina II Amator and Lumina V Amator loudspeakers

Italian company Sonus faber has added two new speakers to its Lumina collection – the Lumina II Amator bookshelf and the Lumina V Amator floorstander, which boast new wood front panels with a glossy finish (red, wenge or walnut) enriched by a 45° angle wood veneer.

The two-way Lumina II Amator features a DAD (Damped Apex Dome) tweeter, the same as the company uses in its Sonetto series, with a Kurtmueller hand-coated soft silk diaphragm of 29mm and a 150mm mid/bass driver equipped with a custom-made basket and diaphragm, which sports cellulose pulp blended with other natural fibres. It has a claimed sensitivity of 86dB (4ohm).

The three-way Lumina V Amator combines the aforementioned 29mm DAD tweeter with the 150mm paper cone midrange driver and two 165mm sandwich diaphragm structure bass drivers for a claimed sensitivity of 89dB into 4ohm loads.

Technical improvements to the new speakers include the increased frequency of the Lumina II Amator’s crossover network up to 2,600Hz, with a +800Hz difference compared with the Lumina II (HFC 478) and the Lumina V Amator’s crossover frequency advanced to 2,850Hz, with a +250Hz difference compared with the Lumina V floorstander(HFC 481).

The Lumina II Amator measures 180 x 304 x 263mm (WxHxD), weighs 5.8kg and is priced at £1,300. The Lumina V Amator, meanwhile, is 280 x 1,049 x 373mm, weighs 22.5kg and costs £3,000.
