Sonus faber has launched its first outdoor speaker, the Aster, bringing “Natural Sounds” beyond walls to home and hospitality public spaces such as restaurants, hotels, and museums.
In tune with the Sonus faber design language, the Aster is organically shaped, slim, and streamlined to fit elegantly into any outdoor environment. The symmetrical positioning of the two lateral passive radiators guarantees rich bass immersion, a surreal listening experience.
Founded in 1983, Sonus faber is an Italian manufacturer of handcrafted loudspeakers system, and high-end audio equipment, born from the idea of a man who loved music and its correct reproduction, a person with a special sensibility about handcrafted wood products and a true reverence for beauty.
As the brand’s first endeavor into outdoor speakers, the Aster is user-friendly for any audio system expert or novice. Its mounting bracket system offers easy installation and the spring mechanism inside the cabinet allows the installer to tilt the speaker in small 15-degree increments without having to adjust the system with a screw.
“Sonus faber has always represented more than just a product for me. It is a way of seeing things, but above all an acoustic and aesthetic philosophy in which to identify,” said McIntosh Group Chief Design Officer, Livio Cucuzza. “Why limit yourself to only indoor listening? Aster interprets the desire to expand the horizons of Sonus faber and offer moments of pure sound enjoyment outdoors and in public spaces.”
IP65 certified, the Aster’s structure and functionality is protected from rain or dust.
The Aster will be available through Authorized Sonus faber Dealers in Spring 2023 for an MSRP of $450 USD.
