Italian audio specialist Sonus faber has announced a second generation of its ultra high-end Stradivari loudspeaker, and it’s as gorgeous as it is expensive.

Coinciding with the company's 40th anniversary, this redesigned and technologically upgraded take on the first Stradivari, launched in the early 2000s, introduces a new pentagonal shape said to enhance the listening experience compared to its original elliptical footprint.

Originally inspired by world famous violin maker, Antonio Stradivari, Stradivari 2.0 pushes the limits of innovation and engineering. Listed improvements include a Low Frequency Adjuster that offers precise control of ultra-low range tuning; an Anti-resonant Organic Basket, designed to avoid vibration modes generated by the woofer membrane; and INTONO technology, which enhances mid-range performance.

“It is never easy for a designer to reinvision an original launch, so when the conversation came about redesigning Stradivari it was challenging but also exhilarating,” said Chief of Design Livio Cucuzza. “How do we recreate a product that continues to stand the test of time and has almost become an artefact? For this, we needed to figure out how to bring Stradivari into this generation of Sonus faber. We wanted to ensure that the new Stradivari represented all the advancements Sonus faber has made in sound technology to date, while still keeping the brand’s classic external look and feel.”

The second-generation Stradivari will be available in red, wenge, and graphite, beginning June 2023 for pre-order, retailing for £45,000.
