This system is equipped with two new trademarked technologies from Sonus Faber. The touch-sensitive SENSOTM interface permits users to directly control Omnia and easily connect to any digital or analogue source, including their television, turntable, or mobile device. The illuminated lines on the top SENSOTM panel further indicate the speakers’ mode, input, and volume. The intuitive interface allows users to enjoy their favourite music via Omnia’s ability to support the latest streaming technology and trusted Turntable Ready (MM) technology, further offering seamless playback from mobile devices with integrated Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay 2, and Chromecast built-in.

An HDMI ARC input is also included to enhance television sound with one direct connection. The new CRESCENDOTM technology is an advanced signal processing system resulting in a greater sense of dimensionality and immersivity, cleverly utilizing the two full-range side speakers.

“For me, Omnia was a complete journey exploring Sonus Faber’s vast history, but made at two times the speed,” said Sonus Faber’s Chief Design Officer, Livio Cucuzza.

“With every project, my job is to tell the brand’s story – and with Omnia, the mission was the same, the process was just faster and went more in-depth. In its new, more accessible category, Omnia will offer a taste of Sonus Faber’s 40-year history to thousands of new customers. Ambitious of course, but also gratifying.”

The Omnia system boasts a mesmerizing three-dimensional sound to immerse listeners in a unique, natural acoustic experience. The result is a crisp wavefront and wide soundstage that mimics that of a live performance, as with the tradition of Sonus Faber’s iconic, award-winning portfolio. Omnia’s 490-watt closed box system hosts 7 drivers:
• (2) 0,75” silk dome tweeters with Neodymium slug structure magnet motor system
• (2) 3” paper pulp cone midrange
• (1) woofer, a 6,5” long-throw woofer with aluminium cone down firing
• (2) 1,75” full-range driver with a non-pressed cellulose pulp inverted dome activated with CRESCENDOTM

Beyond the acoustic offerings, the elevated quality Italian design and the authentic wood surface will enhance any home design.

* Sonus Faber’s Omnia will be available in NZ from April and will retail for $3500.
