Sonus faber's Omnia all-in-one

Sonus faber has launched Omnia, its 490W, DSP-optimised, seven speaker home audio system with connectivity options including Apple AirPlay 2; Chromecast Built-in; Spotify Connect; Tidal connect and Bluetooth aptX HD. It is also Roon Ready.

Omnia features two new trademarked Sonus faber technologies: SENSO and CRESCENDO. The touch-sensitive SENSO interface allows users to directly control Omnia and connect to any digital source wirelessly. Illuminated lines on the SENSO top panel indicate the speakers’ mode, input and volume and in addition to wireless connectivity, Omnia includes a wired Ethernet connection, plus HDMI ARC to enhance TV sound with a single direct connection. Users can also hook up turntables via Omnia’s built-in (MM) phono stage, plus one other (analogue) home audio device, via the unit’s switchable RCA input.

Sonus faber’s CRESCENDO technology is an advanced signal-processing system (DSP) that the company claims: “introduces a greater sense of dimensionality and immersivity, cleverly utilising the two full-range side speakers.”

Sonus faber goes on to say that: “Omnia benefits from three-dimensional sound to immerse listeners in a unique, natural acoustic experience, with class-leading clarity and a wide soundstage that mimics live performances,” and it includes a 490W amplifier with seven loudspeaker drivers. The speakers are a pair of 19mm silk-dome tweeters with Neodymium slug structure magnet motor system, two 76mm paper-pulp cone midrange drive units, a single 165mm long-throw bass woofer with aluminium down-firing driver and two 44mm full-range drivers with a non-pressed cellulose pulp inverted dome that’s activated with CRESCENDO.

Audio inputs include HDMI ARC 2-channel and an analogue MM phono/line-in. Network connectivity comes via Ethernet and wi-fi. It weighs 7.6kg and measures 650 x 130 x 280mm (WxHxD).

Omnia is available to buy now for £1,600 and you can find out more about it here.
