They say .....

Italian loudspeaker maestro reveals extraordinary wireless music streaming system

Based in Vicenza, Italy, Sonus faber has long been known for the exceptional level of craftsmanship that makes its loudspeakers among the most desirable in the world. The company's latest creation brings Sonus faber’s sonic mastery to the world of wireless audio for the first time – a splendidly upscale all-in-one solution for wire-free, multi-room sound.

The Sf16’s distinctive design is inspired by the Snail, an iconic Sonus faber concept from the early 1980s that similarly incorporated stereo speaker pods on ‘wing’ extensions. Production of the Sf16 will be limited to just 200 per year, the first ones being available in September, priced at around £9900.


  • Design incorporates signature Sonus faber speaker technologies, including Zero Vibration Transmission, Sound Field Shaping and Stealth Reflex System
  • Cabinet constructed from solid wood and brushed aluminium
  • Motorised speaker pod ‘wings’ extend to deliver a remarkably spacious, detailed and room-filling sound
  • Each speaker pod contains two 5cm ceramic midrange drivers (one front-facing, one rear-facing) and two 1cm silk dome tweeters (front-facing and rear-facing)
  • Main body adds front- and rear-facing 12cm aluminium/magnesium alloy bass drivers (firing in opposing directions to reduce vibration)
  • Powerful amplification delivers 1400W (total output into 4ohms)
  • Supports hi-res audio up to 24-bit/192kHz and multiple file formats including MP3, M4A, AAC, FLAC and WAV
  • DLNA-compatible
  • Supports DTS Play-Fi – connect and coordinate with up to 16 other DTS Play-Fi-compatible speakers via Wi-Fi
