Sonus Faber Sf16: remote controlled, streaming speaker
12th August 2016
This new, app and remote controlled, streaming speaker features one front- and one rear-firing 127mm bass driver in a wooden and aluminium casing. The sound firing in opposing directions reduces vibration, says the company.
At the sides are two extending satellite speakers housing four 15mm silk dome tweeters (two front and two back) and four 50mm ceramic midrange drivers (front and back). The idea is to enhance separation across the soundstage.
Optical and coaxial digital inputs and a pair of analogue RCA options are also available for external connections while DTS Play-Fi is used for streaming able to link together sixteen speakers or eight stereo pairs, connecting with other brands using the DTS Play-Fi platform.
Weighing in at 25kg and spanning 224 x 640 x 408 mm (closed), the Sf16 supports MP3, M4A, AAC, FLAC and WAV files, up to 24bit/192kHz plus Deezer, KKbox, Rhapsody, Songza, Tidal, Spotify, Amazon music, streaming services. Price is £9,900.
