Italian loudspeaker specialist Sonus faber has expanded its award-winning Lumina range to include a new flagship floorstander, the Lumina V, and a compact standmount speaker, the Lumina II.

The new Lumina II and Lumina V AV speakers are designed to offer the ‘voice of Sonus faber’ in both stereo and multichannel systems, and are positioned to offer greater power handling for larger spaces.

They join the existing Lumina range launched last September. The entire Lumina range now comprises the Lumina I and Lumina II standmounts, the Lumina III and Lumina V floorstanders, plus the Lumina Center I centre channel speaker.

Benefitting from a multilayer wood front baffle available in three finishes, walnut and wengè with maple inlays, plus piano black, the cabinets are finished in a luxurious black leather.

The Lumina II is the second standmount speaker in the collection and enjoys a larger cabinet volume, with a 150 mm mid-range driver. It can be placed within a bookcase or shelving unit, in addition to stand use as a stereo pair, or as rear channels in a home cinema system.
The Lumina V is the second floor standing Lumina model, joining the existing Lumina III. As the new flagship, it benefits from a number of key design elements including a lute-shaped mid/high internal chamber - a unique feature created by Sonus faber in the 1990s. The chamber maximises structural rigidity and the acoustic performance of the midrange, while simultaneously reducing standing waves. The Lumina V also features Sonus faber’s hybrid IFF crossover.

The Lumina collection are designed for music, gaming and home cinema, and pair with Sonus faber’s Gravis subwoofer models I, II and III, which feature matching finishes and materials.

The Lumina II standmount is priced at £999, the Lumina V floorstander £2,499.
