Sonus faber has launched what it describes as a “next-generation premium-quality home audio system” with the Omnia looking well set to blend style with performance …

Sonus faber, most well known for its high-end artisanal speakers such as the Lumina II, has introduced the Omnia wireless speaker system which looks to provide an elegant solution to combining your streaming audio needs with the Italian company’s signature looks and sound. Priced at £1,599, the Roon Ready model is a closed box, 490W, 4-way stereo system, designed to help music lovers and AV enthusiasts connect freely with a variety of sources to enjoy high-quality audio all around the home.

The seven-speaker system contains two 19mm silk-dome tweeters, two 76mm paper-pulp cone mid-range drive units, a 165mm long-throw bass woofer and two 44mm full-range drivers. Wireless connectivity includes the likes of Apple Airplay 2, Chromecast Built-In, Spotify Connect, Tidal and Bluetooth aptX HD. There are also several wired connections, with an Ethernet port and an HDMI ARC for your TV, while vinyl enthusiasts may appreciate the built-in MM phono port and the model’s switchable RCA input.

The Omnia showcases two new Sonus faber technologies. Senso is a touch-sensitive interface that offers direct control, with the three illuminated lines on the top panel indicating the current mode, volume and input. A remote control is also included, so you can tap into your favourite streaming services from a rather more relaxed range. The other new technology is Crescendo, an advanced signal-processing system (DSP) that makes good use of those two full-range side speakers to create a more immersive three-dimensional surround experience, which could prove especially useful for recreating live music performances or putting you into the heart of the on-screen action.

Echoing the Italian manufacturer's fine traditions in design and craftsmanship, the Omnia could certainly look the part in most home systems, with the authentic wooden top panel available in a warm walnut or dark granite finish. The Omnia is available now, priced at £1,599, with all the info and dealer details via the company’s website.
